"You've probably seen work by Vincent Musi before. He's a regular National Geographic photographer and his work has covered topics like volcanoes, illegal immigration, global warming, hurricanes and the like. His latest book, though, is quite different in subject matter. It's a book about dogs - your average pet pooch - and it's fabulous...Paging through the book is a delight."
