Shake, a new book from photographer Carli Davidson, highlights that lightning-fast moment when our four-legged friends dry themselves off, often in a slobber-filled tornado straight out of “Beethoven.” (Huffington Post)

In her new book Shake, shutterbug Carli Davidson uses … technology to demonstrate that [dogs use] their body parts [to] swing, sway and spin in beautiful, unexpected and hilarious ways. (New York Post)

ild hair, flopping ears, and jowls, oh my! Photographer Carli Davidson has managed to capture man’s best friend mid-shake, in all his canine glory, in a delightful photo series which has now become a book. (Good Morning America, GMA.com)

The photographs capture dogs mid-shake, with jowls flailing and eyes rolling , a motion that’s often too quick to catch with the naked eye. (Today.com)

Carli Davidson compiled the most stunningly adorable portraits of dogs doing the thing they do best: shaking it out. Get ready for a permanent smile…. (BuzzFeed)

Shake is an intriguing collection of photos of canines of all shapes and sizes in, well, midshake. The energy and expression in each … are captivating and often downright chuckle making. You may never look at Pawly D the same again. (Daily Candy)

The freeze-frame photos of these pooches—jowels flapping, fur flying—will be lapped up by dog devotees. (O, the Oprah Magazine)

I giggled repeatedly my first time through. I didn't giggle any less on subsequent "reads."

I'm a grown-ass man; I don't giggle.

I was lucky enough to receive Shake a day earlier, and I couldn't be happier! She does a great job at capturing the pups in such a great shake. I love how Carli listed all the dogs and their names at the end as well. Definitely a good book to add to anyones collection.

I'm a bit biased because I know Carli Davidson and one of my 4 dogs is in the book (the English Springer Spaniel). It was a very interesting process to be a part of but I didn't have any idea of what the finished product would look like. WHOA!! This book is an incredible photo essay of many different breeds of dogs in various stages of "shake". I too am a amateur photographer and can really appreciate the talent and art that went into the creation of this book. Besides having the book on my Nook, I'll be buying a few more copies of SHAKE for gifts at the Nov. 17th book signing at Powell's Books in Portland.

Fascinating & Real. If there is a such thing as TRUE entertainment, this is it. It's these types of concepts that make us appreciate life for what it is.

Look no further to solve your holiday shopping dilemas --- EVERYONE should own this book! Carli's photography is perfection, and the photos she has chosen to include in this book are spectacular. The mid-shake dog is funny, scary, and incredibly fascinating, and Carli captures all of that and more. This is not a coffee table book you look at once and never again. I am constantly going back to it, and everyone who has come through my door has been sucked in, cover to cover. We've giggled, ooh'd, and aah'd together -- there's something to grab everyone's attention. For dogs, shaking is a way to release tension (as well as shed water), and these dog shake photos are a great way for us humans to de-stress -- there's no way you can get through this book without laughing out loud at least once! And as an added bonus, Carli is a strong advocate for animal rescue, for adopting, and for supporting differently-abled animals. Many of her "models" have great back-stories, and are worth checking out. You definitely will not regret this purchase, and hopefully our support of Carli will bring us many more wonderful photos in the future!

I gave this three stars instead of two because who doesn't love dogs, and who doesn't love great photography of dogs - especially in funny, stopped-motion shakes??!!!! However, I *thought* it would be a large coffee table book and was shocked to see that it is a dinky little book. If the ad mentioned the size, I missed it. I got several of these to give as Christmas gifts, so it was a good thing that I was giving each recipient several gifts and not just this. Hopefully they thought it was just a stocking stuffer!

A well conceived idea that is equally well executed. This is an excellent collection of images, guaranteed to make you smile. This book has found it's place on my coffee table, beside 'Underwater Dogs', 'If Only You Knew How Much I Smell You: True Portraits of Dogs', and 'The Silence of Dogs in Cars'.

One thing worth mentioning, the middle 20 pages or so in my copy were upside down. It's not a problem for me, but someone who prefers pristine books might be put off. Outside of that the book quality (binding, printing, etc) is top notch.

Aside from my purchase of Flamenco Barbie last year, this has got to be the most frivolous purchase I've made in quite some time. But it was worth it.

This book is pretty simple and straight-forward. It is literally a collection of dogs, well, shaking. Some are wet, some are dry. Some are big, some are small. Some are long-hair, some are short-hair.

As I flipped the pages, I kept thinking this was a silly purchase. But I was also aware of how much I was smiling.

If someone around you is in a bad mood, show them this book and it should snap them out of it. Show it to your dog, however, and he'll just think, 'what's the fuss about?'
