Sizzle and her recommendations for Animal books - does yoga count?
Shaina Fishman has always been obsessed with dogs and photography, and her book is the successful merging of her two loves. Pictured here are different pairings of dogs – young and old, parent and child, friends and a foe or two. The photographs are stunning and simple. At the back of the book is a guide that tells you the names and ages of each dog and some fun personal facts about each pairing.
A more in depth look at how animals impact our lives in the most lovely way is the stunning new book by Tracey Stewart, Do Unto Animals. What I love most about this book is the ease with which Tracey shows the reader how fun and easy it is to help animals.
For someone who has admittedly made the mistake of purchasing two puppies at a store, I was drawn to Tracey's heartwarming tales, not to mention tips about how to care for and entertain your pets. She goes outside the home and lovingly shows how we can live in harmony with pets and even more importantly help animals in our everyday lives. I am so in love with this book and delighted to let people know that you can give the "gift of cow" for Christmas! Pick up this book to read these stories and delight in the illustrations and fun facts throughout.
One final book that I must not forget to mention is a surprise. On Yoga, The Architecture of Peace, has no dogs in it. It does however remind us that all things are connected in spirit and that this connectedness is the very thing that bring people ands animals together. Michael O'Neill photographed the book over 10 years and his brought his passion for yoga to life. "This book brings a new experience of yoga to it's readers. As they witness union in the images - unions of light and dark, artist and subject, form and motion, life and death, and individual and infinite - thy will experience, if they are open, a blossoming of union, of true yoga, within themselves."
