Dogs know how to talk to us—they do it all the time. A pair of raised ears or a wagging tail can speak volumes to those in the know. In this heartfelt ode to the furriest of family members, dog lovers get the chance to say something back, sharing personal letters penned to their beloved companions. With gorgeous accompanying photographs by Robin Layton, this collection of letters and portraits features a wide range of dogs and their owners, including everyday people with remarkable stories as well as celebrities like Hilary Duff, Tony Bennett, and Oprah Winfrey alongside their pooches. Throughout, these tales of perseverance, love, and loyalty celebrate the deep and devoted friendships that humans share with their pups.

Dear Sally and Sadie,
Thank you or being my personal alarm clocks everymorning. Thank you or being my personal trainers . . .making sure I go or a walk outside every day. Thank youor being my bodyguards . . . barking at any small noisesyou hear.I must admit, when I nally conceded to my son’sbegging or a dog, my rule was that there would be nopets in the house. Well, that lasted about a month . . .at the most. Now, I am the one who makes sure you arecomortable on the couch, with pillows under your heads.I am the one who backhands a raccoon, and tears myshoulder up, to make sure you all do not get attacked.When my mother comes to visit, even she cannot helpbut scoot over in bed to make room or you. Obviously,the tables have turned.You get the ront seat on all our boat rides and roadtrips to the beach. You entertain me as you jump of thediving board and climb the ladder in our pool. You makesure we don’t have to eat letovers by cleaning up what’slet o dinner.I never imagined I would sleep with a dog, much lesstwo o you, but you all never ail to keep me warm at night.I never imagined how much I would look orward to beingmet at the door every single night by your smiling aces.You never ail to show me your love.I never imagined I could love a dog the way
I love the two of you!

Oscar,
My sweet, sweet love . . .I fell in love the moment I met you, so tiny and fullof puppy breath. You’ve been described as having“Beverly Hills looks with a Compton attitude.”Seeing how happy you are swimming or running aroundat the park are simple moments I cherish most!
I love you with all my heart!
Amy Smart:
Oscar
