"The best thing about a man is his dog." -French Proverb
I know that many of you live in France...if not in reality, then perhaps, like me, in your imagination and heart. And a few more of you are even crazier about dogs than you are about all things French.
In fact, one friend always photo-stalks Paris pups whenever she visits the City of Light (you know who you are).
So I'm sure you'll love this book I stumbled on at one of my favorite Cannon Beach stores, Sesame and Lilies: The French Dog.
Animal photographer Rachael Hale captures charming chiens of all shapes, sizes and varieties--elegant city dogs, rugged country dogs, and posh pets living the life at grand chateaus. There's plenty of interior eye candy, gorgeous countryside photos and beauty shots of charming villages and Paris, mais bien sur. The only disappointment? Some of my favorites, Ghetto, Gibson and Ben, did not make appearances.
Can you stand it? Those eyes. That lavender. Love.
U.S. readers can find the book here. And for you Francophiles who are more Cat People, Rachel Hale has you covered, here.
