Dogs are our link to paradise.
They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be
back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring.
It was peace.
– Milan Kundera
Histories are more full of the examples
of the fidelity of dogs than of friends.
– Alexander Pope
The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in
this selfish world, the one that never deserts him,
the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.
– George Graham
If you think you’re a person of some influence,
try ordering somebody else’s dog around.
– Cowboy Wisdom
You think dogs will not be in heaven?
I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.
– Robert Louis Stevenson
All knowledge, the totality of all questions and answers,
is contained in the dog.
– Franz Kafka, Investigations of the Dog
I think it is safe to say that Steve never

Dogs have been my best friends throughout my life. They represent all animals to me. Like you , I love them all. Thanks for honoring them here through your art.
Gorgeous gorgeous! Thank you for curating and sharing!
I love them and your pictures
A little over 2 months ago we put our beloved dalmatian, Bogey – to sleep. It’s been hard for me to read anything about dogs, but slowly the pain gets a little less sharp. Your article is a perfect tribute. I have good tears as I see so much love through your photography.
Dogs are the best
So much loveee seeing this dogs series! All photos have their own stories & unique! What a wonderful dog gallery of yours, sir.
I’m with you Steve, I love the animals, big, small & in between.
Amazing! As always
Truer words have never been spoken. Dog bless the God.
I have always loved the words of Rudyard Kipling who wrote:
Brothers and Sisters I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear
Dogs are such true friends of us humans and they are the only source of unconditional love. We know how eagerly dogs wait for their humans and only try to make us happy from inside. These priceless works gives such pleasure to my soul and reminds of good old days when my dogs were alive. Doesn’t have guts to bring a dog to the family again as demise of my dogs created such permanent scars in my heart. Love your self portrait with the street dog and thus might had been taken during Vogue India session. In love with this series. 🙏🏼❤️🐶💖
