From a burly Malamute to a delicate Saluki, there's no denying that dogs have sex appeal. Canine actor or champion, toy-size lapdog or village mutt, what makes a dog downright sexy is a mystery. Is it a muscular build? A silky coat? Just what makes a West Highland White Terrier and a Golden Retriever fall in love? Perhaps we'll never know, exactly. But all the same, we know it when we see it.
Full of color photographs of the sexiest, most gorgeous, most prepossessing dogs in the world, Sexy Dogs is a celebration of canine appeal. The images, by such renowned photographers and photojournalists as Ernst Haas, Elliot Erwitt, and Dennis Stock, are accompanied by classic excerpts, delightful anecdotes, and J.C. Suarès's lively drawings. Sexy Dogs stars, among others, Ping and Pong, the stars of Walt Disney's 101 Dalmatians; Treasure, a world champion Saluki, the Siberian Husky star of Due South; and Olympian diver Greg Louganis's beloved Great Dane, Freeway. It also features Pugs and Poodles, Shiba Inus and mixed breeds. Because one thing's for certain: Any kind of dog can have that certain something.
