In White Night, Jim Butcher wrote, “People love dogs. You can never go wrong adding a dog to the story.” That is absolutely true of this gorgeous book of text and photographs, which offers a fascinating view into the lives of English notables by profiling them with their dogs. One wolfhound is dressed in the same bright red attire that is worn by his master (who is member of Irish Guards) but somehow manages to retain his dignity. Various other breeds are featured, including nine Corgis owned by Queen Elizabeth II.
