For fans who loved bestsellers like Underwater Dogs and Shake comes Flying Dogs and Cats, a fun and stunning book capturing adorable dogs from a unique perspective: mid-air. She published some of these images of airborne canines digitally, and they quickly went viral with features in The Guardian, Huffington Post, and on the Today show.

The delightful result prompted her to capture other dogs and catsfrom this hilarious and unique perspective. Featuring over 120 airborne dogs of all breeds and sizes—from the tiniest of Chihuahuas to full-grown Siberian Huskies and German Shepherds — Flying Dogs is the delightful, swooping sensation that will have dog lovers laughing out loud and begging for more! (And never fear: no dogs were harmed in the making of this book.)

For me being myself against all odds is the most important, that’s why I decided to be a publicist. I really believe that everything is possible until you want.
