    The dogs of North American wineries, February 9, 2007

    This review is from: Wine Dogs USA Edition (Hardcover)

    The subtitle `the dogs of North American wineries’ points to this first USA Edition as the start of something big. Many more states in the Union can look forward to seeing their woofers immortalized in future editions of Winedogs. Following on from the sellout in Australia (that is, all books sold as opposed to `going commercial’), Craig McGill and Susan Elliott have again come through with a beautiful and engaging work. One can only imagine how much fun these folks had whilst out photographing the many mutts. What a job! Going around America photoing dogs and looking for a “100-Point Burger”.

    The brilliant photographs are supplemented by stories written by leading writers including Robert M. Parker Jr, Harvey Posert, Adam Lechmere, Darryl Roberts, Ralph Steadman (illustrations included), Joshua Greene, Bruce Cass, Craig McGill, Sally Ashton and Zar Brooks. In addition, two personal favorite stories are `The Ghost Wineries’ by Jack Burton which is a thought-provoking account of Californian history; and Cole Danehower’s poignant `Harold’s Dog’.

    To echo the words of Jack Burton, “Why this book?” The answer comes from a conversation I had with Craig McGill several years ago, prior to the Winedogs project beginning in Australia. The words “bit of fun” were mentioned along with “favorite pastimes”, “wine”, “dogs” and so on. And fun it is, as the American pooches strut their stuff for the cameras, no doubt watched by their happy owners, the staff of wineries scattered across the States.

    Each dog has its own `bio’ which can be extraordinarily revealing. Some examples are Riva who likes to hide bras in the garden; Ralph who is the spitting image of Groundskeeper Willie from The Simpsons; Simba whose favorite toy is lavatory rubbish (eeww, why did that dog have to tell us that?!); and Murray the labrador whose favorite food is goat’s cheese and whose favorite pastime is `enjoying fine cuisine’. Well done, that dog. And well done McGill and Elliott for launching this book in the USA. The finished art and hard-bound cloth production make Winedogs USA a publication of which the authors can be proud. Looking forward to the next edition!

    A glass of Wine and Bow-Wow!, October 2, 2007
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Wine Dogs USA Edition (Hardcover)

    Light the fireplace, pour yourself a nice glass of wine and curl up with your favorite ‘pooch’ to really enjoy this great little collection of the first edition of American Wine Dogs!

    It’s not about the wine, but about all those wonderful canines that inhabit various wineries, often greeting visitors with a friendly tail wag.

    It’s a dog lover’s delight!

    Not only are all the pictures delightful to look at, but the the bios are all unique and fun to read.

    Makes a great coffee table book and it’s sure to have you looking for the friendly welcome of a ‘wine dog’ on your next visit to a winery!
