Celebrate Black Dogs and Support the SPCA/HS If you have a black dog…or know someone who does…there’s a new book just for you. Black is Beautiful: A Celebration of Dark Dogs is a photographic tribute to America’s least appreciated canines by writer and photographer Pam Townsend, who also volunteers with the SPCA/Humane Society of Prince George’s County, Inc. A dog-lover since childhood, Townsend has lived with black dogs for 17 years…and counting. “Of course I’ve always thought my dogs were beautiful, and it never occurred to me that other people wouldn’t think so,” she says. But as Townsend became interested in animal welfare issues, she learned that black dogs are the hardest dogs for shelters and rescue organizations to find homes for. So as a writer and photographer, she decided to create a special tribute to black dogs. The resulting 8-inch-square, 72-page publication contains 34 photos of black dogs of all shapes and sizes, along with words or phrases related to each image. “My goal is to get people to look at black dogs differently…to appreciate their attractiveness and diversity and to give more thought to adopting a black dog if they’re looking for a new fur friend,” says Townsend. ALL PROFITS from the book's distribution benefit the SPCA/Humane Society of Prince George's County. Copies are available online at pgspca.org/store

On my wish list

posted 5 years ago

Just browsed through this book and I really want to get it. I am the proud human companion of a newly rescued black dog and it's made me think a lot about these dear creatures being passed over.

Pros: Beautiful Book and Supports a Good Cause

Cons: None

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
