What will your dog look like when it’s older?

Dogs have an incredible effect on our lives in so many ways. They are our best friends, our trusted worker mates, our treasured companions, and for some, a real lifeline. I call it "The Dog Effect". 

After my recent article on the touching story of Chad and Otis, I discovered a beautiful book by talented photographer Amanda Jones. Amanda has been working with dogs for 20 years and is recognized as a leader in the field of dog portrait photography. 

Dog Years is a beautiful look at the lives and stories of 30 dogs. In portraying each dog at both young and old ages, photographer Amanda Jones reveals the unique spark of personality that lasts a lifetime. This powerful collection of photographs reminds us that life really is better with a dog by your side

What a great way to remember them.
