From the writer and photographer who brought us the bestselling "Cattitude" series, here comes a uniquely canine perspective on living the good life. Through charming photographs and clever aphorisms, "Dogplay: The Canine Guide to Being Happy" takes a light-hearted look at how our four-legged friends embrace the everyday and maintain their eternal optimism. Whether it's advice about enjoying food ('tap into the mind/body/snack connection'), appreciating the simple things ('explore new backyards but know your way home') or de-stressing ('consider fresh air God's Prozac'), these words of canine wisdom are sure to ring true for human readers as well. Kim Levin's signature black-and-white photography and Christine Montaquila's insightful humour make this adorable book a must-have for any dog lover, or anyone who needs a reason to smile.
