Best Friends is a celebration of compassion and a moving reminder of the special bond we share with our companion animal friends. Best Friends features heartwarming images of over 100 pets who have been cared for and given a second chance thanks to non-profit animal shelters nationwide. You'll meet animals rescued from fires, floods, and earthquakes, taken from unkind owners, abandoned or left homeless when an owner died, and rehabilitated after injury or illness. An introductory essay, quotes about our pet friends, background notes on all animals pictured, and a resource section round out this fine addition to the library of any animal lover.

Sumner Fowler is an excellent photographer. I knew him in high school when he was a photographer for The Birmingham Eccentric. Even back then he had an eye for the unique. He knew what he wanted and was patient enough to wait for the right lighting, the right nod of the head or the look in the eyes. He saw life through a photographers lens. His talent has grown and he has captured the delightfullness of the animal world. Best Friends, is evidence of where Sumner's heart, as well as talent lies......

"How many hearts with warm red blood in them are beating under cover of the woods tonight, and how many teeth and eyes are shining! A multitude of animal people intimately related to us, but of whose lives we know almost nothing, are as busy about their own affairs as we are about ours." John Muir

Sumner's camera takes us into the lives of the animals he has photographed here. I highly recommend the book. The proceeds go to an excellent cause.

Each photo in this book touched me in some way for the better. Mr Fowler certainly has a magic touch with his camera. I'm hoping he comes out with more books.
