    "In 2009, Andrew Grant began photographing dogs, starting with
    two French bulldogs at an unrelated commercial "shoot." Then he
    discovered the sad fact that millions of lost or abandoned dogs
    enter animal shelters every year. And only a few leave through
    rescue and adoption.

    "The rest are euthanized or live out a lonely, caged life.

    "Andrew Grant began to photograph dogs that should be rescued,
    and dogs that have been rescued. Over six years he raised
    nearly $2 million for shelter dogs through his photographic
    project. He did this with the sale of four limited-edition
    books of dog portraits, each called Rover. Each was bigger than
    the previous, and helped by hundreds of sponsoring dog owners.

    "Those editions are all sold out, and fetch up to $400 on the
    rare book market -- when available. Most, though, are as
    treasured as their canine subjects. At least one copy is prized
    by Ellen DeGeneres, dog lover extraordinaire, who featured the
    book on her show.

    "Now, Firefly Books is publishing a popularly-priced trade
    edition called Take Me Home. It contains 265 of Andrew Grant's
    most appealing photographs of dogs. Some are the best friends
    of lucky owners, and some, sadly, are homeless.

    "All are splendidly realized in sharp, large and very lifelike
    color portraits. All were captured by state-of-the-art
    equipment and are truly the most beautiful dog pictures you
    will ever see. They feature purebreds of almost every kind and
    mixed breeds, too.
