I’m thrilled that my new book, Citizen Canine: Dogs in the Movies, will be published on Feb 10, 2020. 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 will be published by Laurence King Publishing in the UK and Chronicle Books in the US. You can pre-order here.

 

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