I’m a dog lover (with two cosseted dachshunds), but I’ve about had it up to here with the hundreds of cutesy canine memoirs unleashed by Marley & Me. Don’t lump dogs in that category. Photographer Tim Flach, whose portraits of horses (Equus) made him famous, now focuses on much smaller creatures. The dogs he captures in these pages are, by turns, soulful, expressive, and winsome — and all of them are stunning.
