I’m thrilled that my new book, Citizen Canine: Dogs in the Movies, is out now. It’s a celebration of 60 of the finest canine actors in film history, covering a span of 100 years. The dogs range from Strongheart, Rin Tin Tin and Lassie to Cujo, Uggie and Beverly Hills Chihuahua.


The book is published by Laurence King Publishing in the UK and Chronicle Books in the US. You can buy it here.

If you love dogs in film as much as I do, you might also want a look at this giant list of dog films I have compiled (pdf below).


Below is a photo that started my obsession – me meeting Hey Hey, one of the descendants of Pal, the talented dog who first played Lassie. I met the gorgeous Hey Hey at the AFM in LA in 2005.
