About the Author
Traer Scott, a fine art photographer with a background in portraiture and fashion, was raised as an only child in a house full of animals. A menagerie of cats, wounded wild animals, birds, snakes and dogs were her most constant childhood companions. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with her husband and two beautiful rescued dogs.

(Buyer beware, not all the dogs are rescued and live happily ever after. I didn't realize this when I bought the book so my heart leaped when reading their stories and I got to the ones that had been euthanized. It's very heartbreaking to see such a beautiful living (when the photo was taken) being and know they are gone.)
I wish this book was in every library, school, store in the country, it would make a difference. I got my pooch from the humane shelter 5 1/2 years ago as a 2 month old puppy that had been tossed out on a freeway to die. She is my best little buddy and better than any human friend I've ever had.
Thank you for such a beautiful book!
I placed this book on my desk at work and people would come by and flip through it and read up on dogs that were of interest to them. This is a great little book to put in an office environment where the reader may not have more than 10 minutes to sit and read the whole book.
I'm hoping for another book to be published by this author.
As the proud "parent" of five rescued canines (and three rescued felines), I can only express my regret that our "forever home" cannot accommodate more: I'd take in each and every one of these lost souls that she captures so hauntingly.
Complaint has been lodged that Ms. Scott erred by not including each animal's bio with their photograph, but I take exception to that: The impact is magnified, when the photograph alone is displayed.
My only dissatisfaction might be that the book is too short, and I can only implore the author to continue her exceptional work with additional issues: If only more people could truly see these loving creatures through the "eye" of her camera, perhaps our shelters would not be so full, and "euthanization" could become anachronistic...
She'll also be publishing a book entitled "Street Dogs" this Fall- buy them both!!
