Reviews

“This sweet, beautifully photographed title… will elicit broad smiles from dog lovers and photography fans.” —Library Journal

“The awh- and awe-inspiring stories and photographs in Unlikely Friendships: Dogs feature my favorite combinations: canines with all critters furred, feathered, and scaled, dogs with people, and, of course—dogs with dogs. I was amused, moved—and at times astonished. I shouldn’t have been: Dogs rule and these unlikely friendships delight.”
Cat Warren, author of the New York Times bestseller What the Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World

“This wonderful book shows the enormous capacity of dogs for love and friendship. The stories here are fabulous, uplifting, and a joy to read, letting us know how much we still have to learn about the dogs we live with.”
Con Slobodchikoff, Ph.D., author of Chasing Doctor Dolittle: Learning the Language of Animals

“Dogs win our hearts because they are all heart, and Holland’s new book is packed with stories of canine big-heartedness. Her well-told tales—from a rescued Chihuahua who pals around with a chicken to a Bernese mountain dog who’s a lifeguard—will remind you of all we love about dogs and why we cannot live without them. Certain to be a big hit with dog lovers everywhere.”
Virginia Morell, author of the New York Times bestseller Animal Wise: How We Know Animals Think and Feel
