As visually sumptuous as Architectural Digest, as elegantly written as Vanity Fair, The American Dog at Home: The Dog Portraits of Christine Merrill is a feast for the senses.

Allan Reznik, Editor-in-Chief for Dogs in Review
Editor-at-Large for Dog World and Dog Fancy

“William Secord’s new book “The American Dog at Home; The Dog Portraits of Christine Merrill,” offers dog lovers, book collectors, breeders and art connoisseurs a special treat. Secord’s work allows the reader to appreciate how Merrill captures in traditional and passionate style the unique characteristics of 30 American Kennel Club breeds. Each realistic image portrays the predictable trait of the breed in charming detail.

Dennis B. Sprung, President and CEO The American Kennel Club

"Bill's book featuring Christine Merrill's paintings celebrates the special bond we have with our four-legged friends. It's wonderful to see so many rescue dogs making their way from shelters to good homes and beautiful portraits in this delightful book. What a long way they have come."

Ed Sayres, ASPCA President & CEO
