Following a year-long social media campaign that yielded over 4000 submissions from
would-be canine models, Kira Stackhouse embarked upon collecting the stories and
images of over 300 dogs with the intention of promoting responsible dog ownership.
Stackhouse photographed two members of each of the 170 breeds represented, one with
papers, the other a rescue, and paired the resultant photos with endearing factoids such
as favoured treats and pastimes.
Older dogs and younger, the one-eyed and the hairless, they’re all here, standing in for
the beloved canines who have come in and out of our lives. As the book’s introduction
succinctly puts it, Project DOG is a celebration of something shared by so many of us—a
love for dogs—independent of where they came from or what they look like.
