ON DOGS: An Anthology

Win a Characterful Portrait of Your Dog!

On Dogs is a book for all those who love to be in the company of dogs and great writers. The authors collected in On Dogs consider the joys and pitfalls of dog ownership with wit and affection. From Miranda Hart arguing that dogs are better than cats to J.R. Ackerley’s tender portrayal of his ill-behaved dog Tulip, On Dogs traces the canine’s extraordinary journey from working animal to pampered pet. In her entertaining introduction, Tracey Ullman recounts tales of her exploits as an inveterate adopter of strays. This joyous book is illustrated with six striking dog portraits by photographer to the stars, Rhian ap Gruffydd.
