RED DOG / BLUE DOG is a photo collection of dogs doing stereotypically liberal and conservative things. It rips on both sides equally and is designed to be pure levity in an election season. It makes a good gift book for dog lovers and politics gurus. I dedicated the book to my flabby dog, Graham, who, though he contributes nothing to the household, is a big snuggly ball of love -- and I am grateful for him. As my dog is a rescue himself, I am excited to donate a portion of the proceeds to rescue organizations and no-kill shelters.
You can find RED DOG / BLUE DOG on Amazon here. Find the book's accompanying website here. And I want to give one big shout-out to ALL of those who submitted photos for the book's consideration. This book came about with the help of many, and was a labor of love (and fun!).
