Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811826872, Paperback)

This irresistible celebration captures dogs in their finest moments, at the charming and idiosyncratic society dog shows of the 1930s and '40s, when both dogs and owners were at their dapper best. Selected from the collection of the late, renowned society photographer Bert Morgan, these more than 150 exquisite duotone photographs evoke an era of refined leisure with the famous and fabulous-and their dogs-in competition and at home: eight-year-old Jacqueline Bouvier, Band-Aid on her knee, stands beaming on her front lawn with her enormous Great Dane; firehouse Dalmations line up at the Westminster Kennel Club's annual show; and descendents of Napoleon Bonaparte admire their distinguished pup on a park bench. Pedigreed pets vault walls, preen and promenade, all for the admiration of their owners-and the judges. Dog lovers and society watchers alike will enjoy ?this fun evocation of canine daring-do and gilded-age glamour.?
