"If your summer workload prevents you from high-tailing it to the nearest beach as often as you'd like, there could be no greater escape than this charming book of photographs captioned with quotable quotes." -- Julia Szabo, FetchDog.com "Salty Dogs by Jean M. Fogle is packed with photographs of dogs living in the moment as they frolic on the beach. Fogle's engaging photos show a variety of breeds swimming, playing, romping, surfing and lounging in the water and on the sand. The pages are also sprinkled with humorous and inspiring quotations, making this book a delightful collection for any dog lover who also loves the beach." -- Dog Fancy "This book isn't about dogs who get too much salt in their diets, it's a small photo book of dogs rollicking at the beach, where every man becomes a child and where dogs can't let joy be unconfined. If the weather is warm where you are, just looking at the great photos will cool you off. There are big dogs and little dogs, lots of wet dogs, and even a surfing dog." -- Steve Dale's Pet World "A gorgeous book of canine beach bums caught in the fun-filled moment. A variety of breeds and personalities are represented, from German Shepherds to Golden Retrievers to mutts, cavorting, resting and sometimes posing. The photos are lovingly captioned with quotes -- happy, humorous, haunting. The perfect gift-book for any dog lover." --Amy Shojai, "P'Etiquette," The Herald Democrat "This book of color photographs of dogs taken at the beach by Jean M. Fogle is absolutely wonderful! Paired with appropriate quotations ranging from 'All animals except man know that the ultimate in life is to enjoy it' (Samuel Butler) to 'Happiness depends on ourselves' (Aristotle), the book joyfully celebrates the true meaning of a fun day the beach: sun, sand, water, tide, toys and sticks floating by. It reminds us all that sometimes, no matter what else is going on, if you live full in the present sometimes life really is a day at the beach. This book is an excellent gift for any dog and beach lover." -- Phyllis DeGioia, DWAA Newsletter Editor
