about this item

Catahoula is more than just a dog picture-book. The origins began in 1993, when photographer John Slaughter was commissioned by a Catahoula-themed restaurant located in Calistoga, California. Following that project, he continued to photograph the Louisiana State Dog. What makes Catahoulas such an interesting subject is that they come in so many different colors, including their eyes. Many of the most striking images are of the dogs' faces. They have an other-worldly stare that says "I am an individual, I am thinking, I am watching, do not assume that I am like other dogs." Included in this book are several owner articles as well as a section entitled "Cowdogs and Cowboys," as Catahoulas are known for their herding instincts.Slaughter has been exhibiting photos since 1975 and has brought his composition skills and color sense to bear here, just as he did with Grand Coteau, his previous effort.
