Dogs just wanna have FUN!: Picture this: Dogs at Play

There are many books that celebrate our canine friends, but few so colourfully and evocatively demonstrate the sheer enjoyment they experience just from being a dog. The photographs in this book are not about the bond between us and our canine companions, the results of dog training, or the ever-expanding canine wardrobe. Rather, the focus is on how dogs behave when they are freed from everyday constraints, and can indulge their natural instincts.

The unsung heroes here are the owners, who, after ensuring that their beloved best friend would be safe, let him or her run free to interact with others for the photoshoot. The resultant images showcase pure doggie delight – as the expressions on the dogs’ faces demonstrate!

Whether chasing balls or other dogs, mud-bathing, swimming, or rolling, this is a joyous celebration of dogs simply enjoying themselves! p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

About the author

Cheryl Murphy is a professional photographer who lives and works in Beverley, East Yorkshire. She has photographed many formal studio shoots, often including family pets. Observing how the finished results appeared posed, rather than natural, Cheryl decided to explore photographing dogs in a natural environment, with no constraints on their behaviour.

Cheryl has been a dog owner for many years, and has come to realise how each of our canine companions have individual traits and characters. With her camera as a constant companion, she captures natural-looking images of dogs at play, and interacting in an uninhibited manner.

Cheryl was the photographer for another Hubble & Hattie book – Home Alone and Happy, by Kate Mallatrat. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

A stunning and indelible collection of portraits and stories that capture dogs of a certain age in all their patchy, scruffy, jowly, and devoted glory—an homage to man’s best friend, based on the popular international photography project.

The dogs in Old Faithful are well worn, well loved, and well on in years. After his grandmother’s 100th birthday party, photographer and dog lover Pete Thorne found himself taking photos of elderly dogs. In their aged, imperfect faces, he saw a depth of life, joy, and wisdom missing from more youthful subjects. He gathered these rich and powerful portraits into a web series he called “Old Faithful.”

The reaction was instant—and astounding—from media outlets as diverse as Huffington Post and BuzzFeed to Esquire and ABC, to thousands of people around the globe who reached out to Thorne with their heartwarming stories of their own faithful companions. The photos triggered a wide variety of emotions, eliciting smiles and tears, and unleashing a flood of anecdotes and memories. “Old Faithful” became a shared platform for dog lovers all over the world.

Based on his web series, Old Faithful features dozens of color photographs that bring these dogs vividly into focus, accompanied by poignant descriptive sketches that capture the spirit and personality of each, illuminate his life and experiences, and celebrate the shared relationship with a beloved human companion.

A sweet and moving keepsake, Old Faithful demonstrates that aging can be beautiful, and offers profound lessons for all of us, no matter our age.
