Some people own a dog, whilst others are owned by their dogs – but either way the relationship between each is unique and special. Dogs come into our lives, bringing with them a level of devotion never before experienced . They make us laugh at their antics and funny ways, and when they leave us after a life-too-short, they break our hearts and leave our homes empty and echoing. This book is a collection of stories, photographs and illustrations that will make you laugh and cry. The stories are based on real dogs, who have been lovingly recreated by Stephanie as handmade felt models. A book that will appeal to both creative felt-makers and dog lovers alike. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

Long overdue, this unique book is about wildlife photography, and the power it has to improve physical and mental wellbeing. Designed to appeal to a wide range of individuals, from beginners with very little photographic experience, through to those further along on their photographic journey, Wildlife Photography – saving my life one frame at a time offers practical help, tips and insight into the life of a professional photographer, who uses photography to help deal with his PTSD – brought on by a harrowing and traumatic experience whilst serving in the police force – and the physical reminders of various careers as soldier, mental health specialist, physical training instructor, and police officer. With general tips and points about equipment, fieldcraft and techniques, this fabulously-illustrated book of over 200 colour images seamlessly aligns photography with creative suggestions around mindfulness, wellbeing and holism to create a blueprint for all, and especially anyone experiencing poor mental or physical health, who would like to express themselves creatively in the natural world. Powerful words from the heart mix with breathtaking, unique and original images of some of Britain’s most elusive wildlife (and tantalising shots from photographic forays further afield) taken by an award-winning photographer and trauma survivor. Join Paul Williams on his journey from rock bottom – and three suicide attempts – to his rediscovery of a life worth living; filled, as it is, with the wonder of wildlife, captured in his stunning images, and a new-found sense of peace and wellbeing.

Have you ever wondered why dogs are considered ‘man’s best friend?’ In this book, Psychologist Dr Christopher Blazina explains the importance of the unique bond between men and dogs. There are widely-held beliefs that males naturally transition into a state of self-imposed seclusion and emotional detachment in adulthood. Even relying on another person violates the rules of being a man. When Man Meets Dog explores how the bond with animal companions bypasses many of these barriers, helping males develop into happier, healthier men. What a difference a dog can make! It’s also important to discuss the other side of attachment: loss. Again, the mixed messages men receive lead to difficulties with managing grief. When Man Meets Dog is the first book to discuss men’s continuing bonds with a lost animal companion. A continuing bond is a new way of reconnecting and preserving the memory of this unique connection. When Man Meets Dog is a memoir with a purpose. Chris shares his very personal story of how two shelter dogs not only changed the direction of his life, but also how he defines what it means to be a man.
