What dog owner hasn't done this? You anthropomor- phize your four-legged friend, put thoughts and feelings into his or her head that he or she almost certainly doesn't have, and basically turn your pet into a four-legged person. That is exactly how photographer Sandra Muller feels about her dog Maja- who inspired Dog People - the book that provides hilarious and creative photographic answers to the question: "What kind of person would this dog be?" Whether it's Great Dane Holly as a couch potato or "Gismo" riding a Harley, these images and more make up the unforgettable and endearing collection of portraits of man's best friend in Dog People. From the author's foreword: "No, this book is not meant to be a fashion show for dogs and dog owners - dogs are not dolls and should only have clothes put on them when medically necessary. This book is simply a thought experiment: what kind of person would my dog be? Let's be honest: who hasn't given his or her dog a lengthy explanation of which the dog seems to listen intently and surely seems to understand every word? Yes, yes, I know - YOUR dog understands every word, just like mine!" The book is a colorful parade of dogs, from Giant Schnauzers to Pugs, from registered purebreds to street mutts. There is also a humorous description of each dog explaining how the outfit was chosen to make the particular animal a Dog Man or Dog Lady. For example, take "Gisbert," a Pug who would surely be a doctor if he were human - as he loves his vet so much that all you have to do is say "Dr. Uwe" and he pricks his ears - as much as any Pug can prick his ears, at least. AUTHOR: Sandra Muller who is now twenty-three, bought her first SLR camera at fourteen. She has been a big animal lover since childhood - from guinea pigs to her aunt's dog, with whom she spent entire summer vacations. Today, she is the proud owner of Maja, the "most beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog mix in the world," (of course, she is in the book!) and has found her calling in photography. She specializes in portraits of people and dogs. She feels it is very important to capture the unique personality of each of her subjects, two-legged or four-legged, in each shot. In Dog People, she has outdone herself in a whole new way.
