Introduced by Tracey Ullman
The writers and poets collected within this delectable anthology reflect on the joys and pitfalls of dog ownership with wit and affection. From Roald Amundsen’s account of using sled dogs in his expedition to the South Pole to J.R. Ackerley’s tender portrayal of his ill-behaved dog Tulip, On Dogs traces the canine’s journey from working animal to pampered pet.
With a humorous introduction by Tracey Ullman (an inveterate adopter of strays), this is a perfect gift for dog lovers.
Features six black and white dog photographs by acclaimed reportage and portrait photographer Rhian Ap Gruffydd, and a cover image by Picasso of his dachshund Lump.
