For dog lovers and photography enthusiasts alike, the 2021 book Magnum Dogs, published by Thames & Hudson, offers the most delectable contents with over 180 photos of canines captured all over the world. The book features four-legged friends riding in cars, getting the royal treatment at the groomer, and on vacation in its five chapters: Streetwise, Best in Show, It's a Dog's Life, At the Beach, and Behind the Scenes.

Captured moments such as Cristina García Rodero's photo of a small dog holding a person's hand, Richard Kalvar's image of two dogs that appear to be hugging, and Elliott Erwitt's angle of a large poodle standing up tall to get a view of a dog show are reminders of why we love canines so much (and why they may be better than cats).
