Beautiful Old Dogs

April 23rd, 2014
Beautiful Old Dogs


Featuring beautiful imagery from the late Garry Gross, Beautiful Old Dogs is a tribute to the older, greyer pooches of the world. In a society that tends to favour puppies over seniors, this book makes you look past the greying hair and discover the wisdom that each and every old dog shares after just a short time on Earth.

Dogs Life has two copies of Beautiful Old Dogs to give away.

    In our house we seriously love seniors!!!!! It’s hard to believe after adopting two rescue dogs when we lost our beloved senior girl that they are now approaching old age themselves… This will remind me why this is a good thing! <3

    My dog loves watching other dogs on TV and in books. And I love older dogs, all the ones I’ve had experience of are so wise. Let’s hope the one I have makes it to senior-dom.

    Iā€™m a century tenth young,
    but act rookie
    to get that dog cookie
    I want to learn graceful ageing
    And still have fun!
