Little Kids and Their Big Dogs by Andy SeliverstoffFrom hugely popular photographer Andy Seliverstoff of St. Petersburg, Russia, comes this utterly charming collection of just what the title says -- little kids and the big dogs they love.
Through the prism of Seliverstoffs magic lens, impossibly big dogs (Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Leonbergers, Newfoundlands, Irish Wolfhounds, to name a few) and some rare ones (like Komondorok and Bracchi Italiani) telegraph the special relationships they have with the children in their lives.
In the end, I hope the photos convey this important message: Love for dogs and children makes people kinder, Seliverstoff says.
