We can't wait to get this book!!!! The Mom ordered it today, plus a couple extras for our Black Pearl friends. And the purchase benefits the SPCA/Humane Society of Prince George's County in Maryland. What a sweet deal!
From the press release:
Proving that basic black never goes out of style, and beauty really is in the eye of the beholder, now a new book is shining a well-deserved, long-overdue spotlight on the enduring beauty of the black dog. Black is Beautiful: A Celebration of Dark Dogs is a photographic tribute to these underappreciated gems. The author, writer-photographer Pam Townsend, is a volunteer with the SPCA/Humane Society of Prince George’s County in Maryland.
By her count, Townsend has lived with black dogs for 17 years. “Of course, I’ve always thought my dogs were beautiful,” she says, “and it never occurred to me that other people wouldn’t think so.” But when she learned of the tragic plight of black dogs at animal shelters, she decided to create a special tribute to them. That was black dogs’ lucky day: Her book is an 8-inch-square, 72-page tome guaranteed to bring beauty and elegance to any coffee table. Remember, basic black goes with everything!
“My goal is to get people to look at black dogs differently…to appreciate their attractiveness and diversity and to give more thought to adopting a black dog if they’re looking for a new fur friend,” the author concludes.
Of course, WE know that Black IS Beautiful. Preachin' to the choir here... BOL
Black is beautiful and it hides dirt well.
