Every Man and His Dog is a glorious documentation of the relationship between Aussie blokes and their canine besties. David Darcy's brilliant photos are accompanied by the men's heartfelt, often hilarious and invariably moving anecdotes about them and their dog.

Since Indigenous Australians first shared their lives with dingoes thousands of years ago, dogs have been part of the fabric of everyday life in Australia. In Every Man and His Dog David Darcy explores this timeless bond between man and dog. Travelling around Australia, from the coast to the Outback, David photographed blokes from all walks of life as they talked about their dogs-from tough working dogs to pampered family pets.

The result is a funny, moving and unforgettable tribute to man's best friend.

        Beautiful book and pictures. Was worth the wait for a re-print. Very suitable as a gift for dog lovers and outback fans.

          Just a wonderful collection of Australian blokes – of all types – talking about their equally diverse four-legged mates. Brilliant photos accompanied by some truly heart-warming stories that make you appreciate just how much joy a dog can bring into somebody's life through the simple gift of companionship. Perfect gift for anyone with a soft spot for dogs – in particular those hard-to-buy-for older male relatives. Highly recommended.
