Review:

Whether you're Irish only on St. Patrick's Day or all year 'round, if you're a dog lover, 'tis sure and you'll be loving Erin Go Bark. Filled with talented pet photographer Kim Levin's shots of dogs in Dublin and Dingle Bay, this little book is as charming as the country in which it was created. Each photo is accompanied by a dog-specific version of an Irish blessing--you won't find "may the wind be always at your back," but rather "may your coat stay shiny, your nose stay cold, and the sidewalk stay soft." As Levin and coauthor (and husband) John O'Neill write in the forward, Ireland is full of dogs on the loose, all slightly wet, slightly wild, and entirely adorable. Most of the shots are of a single mongrel, rather damp and scruffy, but full of personality. The matching of blessings with the photo is as entertaining as the picture itself. One particularly whimsical shot shows a very resigned-looking terrier in what appears to be a fur-trimmed cloak and matching tunic. His saying reads, "let us forever bless the witty soul who invented dog clothing." Another of the book's many sayings is one that many young Irish women would whole-heartedly agree with: "may the next person who calls you "lassie" get fleas." This little gem will have any blarney-filled dog lover nodding and saying "top o' the morning" to every pooch on the block. Grab a pint of Guinness and enjoy! --Jill Lightner
