It’s even more poignant for me when I know my subject has come from a difficult background. I’m very passionate about animal rescue, and some of the dogs included here experienced hard times before finding their forever homes. I feel very fortunate to have been united with my two rescue dogs, Pip and Pixel. Found wandering the streets as a twelve-week-old puppy, Pip was severely undernourished. With the help of GreyhoundAngels of Western Australia and a loving foster family, Pip regained her strength and stole my heart at first sight.

It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. —ALAN WATTS Kato, AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER Hades, CHIHUAHUA Dayzee, BULLMASTIFF Abbie, WOLFHOUND MIX Jessie, SHOLLIE Nothing is left to you at this moment but to have a good laugh. —CHINESE ZEN MASTER Minnie, STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER Mr. Scruffy, MIXED BREED Polly, STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER MIX Dozer, ROTTWEILER Abbey, STANDARD POODLE Wherever you are, be there totally. —ECKHART TOLLE Muska, HUNGARIAN VIZSLA Bosco, RED CLOUD KELPIE Pepperoni, DACHSHUND Lexie, GREYHOUND MIX Miley, PUG Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free.

I discovered that the blink happens in a split second, but truly Zen-worthy expressions happen only when my subject and I are in sync. In that moment nothing else matters. It’s pure, unadulterated joy. I also discovered that, in that split second, the dog’s distinctive personality—playful, placid, or confident—shines through. As an animal lover, seeing blissful dogs always brings a smile to my face, and I know I’m not alone. It’s even more poignant for me when I know my subject has come from a difficult background.
