Dog Book showcases Weinstein's exquisite original oil paintings and her related tales of dogs found on highways and in shelters, of dogs abandoned and then rescued, even of dogs that rescue others. From the un-adoptable mutt who finally finds a home to the Search and Rescue dogs of 9/11, Dog Book offers us a compelling and often amusing glimpse into the life of over 60 remarkable canines and their people. Combining captivating prose with oil paintings and pencil drawings of her subjects and inspired by those subjects she so intuitively portrays, Weinstein masterfully manages to bridge the gap between artist and essayist. "Each dog became my muse," Weinstein says. "Animal neglect and abuse are all too common. This book is about awareness and hope."
