Original, amusing, and brilliantly documented, Shake is a heartwarming collection of sixty-one beguiling dogs caught in the most candid of moments: mid-shake. This glorious, graphic volume will stop you dead in your tracks as you are presented with images of man's best friend caught in contortion: hair wild, eyes darting, ears and jowls flopping every which way.
With Shake, photographer Carli Davidson proves how eager and elated we are to see our pets in new ways. The result is a one-of-a-kind book: a colorful assemblage of photographs that are simultaneously startling and endearing, consistently hard to look away from, and revealing.

Its a picture book, and the pictures are magical! I gave this book as a gift... After I had looked at each and every photo multiple times... I will be purchasing it for myself...
This book was all pictures. It is wonderful as a coffee table book. A perfect gift.
A really good laugh for anyone who likes dogs (and many who don't). Great photography, and a section at the back listing all the dogs' names, with an explanation of the techniques used to get the right shots. A great gift.
Perfect present, I bought 4 of them for birthday and christmas presents!
In her new book Shake, shutterbug Carli Davidson uses technology to demonstrate that [dogs use] their body parts [to] swing, sway and spin in beautiful, unexpected and hilarious ways.--New York Post"
