The Tao of Maggie: The Sound of One Hound Barking

Front Cover
Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2003 - Pets - 112 pages
The fabulously feisty and photogenic basset hound known as Maggie went from having one fan-owner/photographer Bill Stanton-to thousands after the publication of their first book, Maggie's Way: Observations from Below Your Knees

Maggie returns with more dog's-eye-view wit and wisdom in The Tao of Maggie: The Sound of One Hound Barking. This keepsake book is filled with delightful color and black-and-white photographs capturing Maggie in action. Each photo is accompanied by sage wisdom from ancient philosophers, accomplished writers, and, of course, Maggie herself who handily dispenses Eastern-influenced advice. Who says basset hounds can't be zen masters? The photos within reveal the many sides of Maggie, from the inspiring snatching dog biscuits in mid-air to the slightly less-than-inspiring captured on film with her head in the toilet. With its creative blend of humor, meditative contemplation, and stunning photography, The Tao of Maggie makes a great gift and is sure to keep lovers of all dogs smiling.
