Review for Puppy Life

Review for Puppy Life

Puppy Life: The First Eight Weeks of Bonding, Playing, and Growing by Traer Scott, Dogs, Puppies, Non-Fiction, Animals, Photography, CuteI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

Yes, it is time for puppies! For doggies! At the time of writing it is still one day before I can start my search for a doggo again, so I thought why not read something adorable and doggo related? In this case cute photographs of puppers throughout various stages in life! Eep!

I have to confess, I even read the introduction! Quite often I just hop right ahead to the book itself. The photographs. But this time I was curious and then I was absorbed. The introduction was really fun to read and I loved reading about the photographers passion for puppies and photography.

And then it was onwards to the puppies. In this adorable and fun book we get 6 kinds of puppies. Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, English Setters, Daniffs (which are new to me), Great Pyrenees, Labrador Retrievers, Mixed Breed. I know I shouldn’t have favourites, but I was looking forward a lot to Spaniels and Labradors. I just cannot help it. They are all cute, but these two just take the cake. The book does list that it shows various stages of puppy life but I just didn’t know what to expect. Well, I can explain it now to my readers. Each two pages is one week in the life of a puppy. From the very first week in which they are still so so tiny and fragile to the 8th week in which you can see more a dog. Each puppy kind gets information on the breed + puppy life in general, and what changes each week. Some dogs stay tiny and small for a long time and some just POOF are a dog very soon. XD I had expected just photography to show the process, instead I got a ton more and I absolutely loved it. I learned quite a lot of new things and am now recovering from a cuteness overload as DANG these doggos are just too cute. I also loved that we got some personal stories about the mom and dad or the puppies. That definitely made it, for me, even more fun to read (or sad in one case).

The photographs are just the cutest! The photographer really captures these puppies and I loved that they are allowed to move. That sounds weird, but I have seen some dog books in which pups/dogs were put in a pose. Here you can see that at times the pups were just done with the photographing or just wanted to play rather than sit. Which made me giggle.

All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this superadorable book to everyone! I am sure it will be loved by many. I definitely would love to add this book to my shelves.

Star rating, 5 stars
