A heartfelt story told in photographs and Moose the dog's narration, about how one small dog helped his owner chase the Black Dog away.

"My name is Moose and my master's a photographer. Well, he usually is. At the moment, he's in trouble. He feels really sad. Because he's got not work. I know what that means: more pictures of scruffy old me . . ."

Captured through his owner Martin's photographs, this is the story of Moose the dog's life in East London, and the effect of the recession on his owner. Moose introduces us to his friends, favorite smells, and thoughts on the modern world.

Through his poignant and funny first-hand account of the highs and lows of being a photographer's dog, and his efforts to help his owner through a time of no work, we discover a wagging tale about not giving up, and being a man's best friend.

About the Authors

Martin Usborne lives in central London where he has his photographic studio. He started his photographic career after a number of years working as a creative director in children's TV (which included dressing up as a furry white alien). Before that he studied psychology at Edinburgh University and then animation at Glasgow School of Art.

Moose is one year old and lives in Hoxton with his master. He enjoys snow, chasing squirrels and spending time in the park with Martin, who likes to take pictures of him. This is his first book.

    Comments about My Name Is Moose:

    Really beautiful photographic journey of the dog of a photographer. My partner (who loves dogs) cried in the 10mins it took to go through this book. Short and sweet.
