During one of my Blogpaws chats,
I won a book called Doggitude.
I thought cool , sounds like a book for me.
It arrived and I couldn't wait to read it.
|I got a signed copy and a Blue Ribbon!|
Of course my ma wanted to see what I was reading.
Ok ma, you are really cramping my style. Please just let me read.
|Do you mind I am trying to read here!|
|Gosh ma go away|
|I like this ribbon|
|Ok I will let you look at it.|
Doggitude is the creation of Carole Pivarnik. She wanted to express what dogs think using Haiku poetry. Only 17 syllables to say what the eyes think. She painted the dogs and added the poetry to the photos and this combination turned out pawsome. Reading about how she got started, what she did to get her idea published and finding the right dogs was so fascinating!
Then, there is the paintings of the dogs. The portraits are wonderful. It's like you can see inside the dogs soul. She captured the thoughts of each of the dogs that were chosen. I could stare at the portraits all day. They speak to me.
|Elli- "I don't mind sharing mouthfuls of water with you. You wear it so well"|
There is even some poodle blends in this book! There is one named Jackson. He is a standard poodle blend. Yes, he even thinks like a poodle.
|Jackson- "Not sure why we stare at the picture box but the snacks are good"|
Most of these dogs that are featured in the book are my friends on Facebook too! There are so many more in the book but you have to get the book to see for yourself.
I highly recommend it.
I enjoyed this book and reading the backgrounds of the dogs that were chosen. Some are known as "old souls" some are "the happiest, sweet natured" dog. They are all different and they are all intriguing. You can even send your dog's photo in to be considered for the next book.
You can buy Doggitude on Amazon.com . They also have a Kindle version that can be purchased for $2.99. You can find Doggitude on Facebook and on Twitter @Doggitude
This book is great for all ages. I look forward to the next book. Who knows , maybe I will submit my photo. As Carole says "Bark Well, Play Often and Wag Much"
