Nancy Le Vine Photography Of Senior Dogs Across America

In 2006, New York City-based photographer Nancy LeVine said goodbye to her two best friends, dogs Lulu and Maxie. She has devoted more than a decade to honoring their legacy, traveling the United States in search of souls like theirs, elderly canines who are living out their golden years with a dignity and warmth that far exceed the aches and pains of old age.
Senior Dogs Across America is her stirring tribute to dogs large and small and their bond to the human beings who care for them. She visited private homes and sanctuaries and rescues for homeless animals. She met dogs who lived with one family their whole lives and others who were still searching for a home of their own.
Throughout her journeys, LeVine saw animals who had indeed slowed down; some were unable to frolic as they once had as puppies. When she could, she brought them to their favorite places, beaches and fields wherein the memories of days gone by still lingered.
It’s impossible not to get misty-eyed turning the pages of Senior Dogs Across America-for every reader, there will almost certainly be one particular dog who hits home for one reason or another- but this is most decidedly not a book about sadness. It’s a joyful tale, told by countless woofs and tail wags. As with Robert Frank’s The Americans, which served as inspiration for LeVine, there is loss here, but there’s also redemption, humor, and infinite delight.
