"Psychologists call it 'unconditional positive regard,' which means your dog loves you no matter what sort of a day you're having, how rotten you've been to the people at work, or how stressed you've been." --MSN.com
Photographer and author Rachael Hale profiles 101 of the most lovable dog breeds, from Australian terrier to Yorkshire terrier.
Rachael Hale's luminous photography captures the essence of 101 of the most revered dog breeds as she pairs her captivating images with descriptions on each breed's origin, temperament, and physical characteristics.
Dogs is the perfect gift for the households who have a canine companion and receive the medical benefits that pampering a pooch provides, namely the reduction of blood pressure by 10 percent and the release of feel-good hormones like serotonin.
Hale's lens perfectly reflects the spirit of the most popular breeds -- including the golden retriever, Labrador, and cocker spaniel -- along with new "designer" breeds such as the cockapoo and the Labradoodle.
