This highly anticipated follow-up to the bestselling book Shake features more than 130 photographs of adorable puppies. This brilliant, brightly colored collection truly captures the squishy cuteness of a puppy—its tousled fur, floppy ears, and endearing expression—in the moment when our tiny, wide-eyed companion is mid-shake. 
In addition to its vibrant photographs, Shake Puppies includes a message of support for animal rescue and creating an environment in which all dogs, young or old, can succeed in their new homes. Training tips are included to help dog owners achieve this goal. There is also a roster listing the names and ages of all the dogs featured, as well as a peek into Carli Davidson's studio.
My thoughts:

Hm.. my thoughts on this book? Seriously? I don't think I have a coherent thought in my brain with all the cuteness! Okay first... PUPPIES! Second... PUPPIES caught with such cute and humorous expressions while in mid shake. You cannot have a bad day with this book in your hands. Then I learn that the author also adopted a dog during the session. Not a puppy but an elderly dog needing a home. Carli Davidson is also a proponent of rescues. I also love that there is a small section on basic training. I feel that is one of the main reasons that dogs are sent to shelters because they don't know basic manners. It's not the dog's fault, but the human who failed to educate themselves and train their dogs.

I give this 5 puppy breaths! Need a smile? Get this book! It is adorable and like I said it would even make the grinch turn his frown upside down! :D

  1. OMG did you say PUPPIES!!? Where do I sign-up? LOL! I already have two aging fur babies of my own, so I feel like I'm cheating on them whenever I look at these types of books, but the cuteness overload is impossible to resist. What they don't know can't hurt 'em, right? ;)

    1. I bet they would be fine with it as long as you only brought the book home. That is what mine tell me. LOL

  4. I think this book would make my kids beg for a puppy again. They think they need their very own puppy since our dog is a mommy's dog. But I'm definitely a rescue person so chances of getting an actual puppy are slim. This book looks adorable!

    1. Um... actually it isn't hard to get a puppy as a rescue. Some of those in the book were rescue dogs looking for a home. ;) Now, don't kill me for saying that.
