Anyone who has ever had a canine companion as a member of the family will agree with many of the sentiments expressed by Robert Freeman in the simple yet eloquent homage he has written about his family’s dogs in Woof!, released earlier this  year by Page Publishing.

The Harvard-educated Freeman and wife Carol made a home to seventeen different dogs throughout their 42-year marriage. Woof! is not only a lovely homage to the joys, pleasures, frustrations and sorrows associated with dog ownership, but also a wonderful tribute to Freeman’s deceased partner and wife, Carol. It makes a perfect stocking stuffer for the dog enthusiast on this year’s gift list.
