Since Indigenous Australians first shared their lives with dingoes thousands of years ago, dogs have been part of the fabric of everyday life in Australia. David Darcy explores this timeless bond between man and dog. Traveling around Australia, from the coast to the Outback, David photographed blokes from all walks of life as they talked about their dogs—from tough working dogs to pampered family pets. The result is a funny, moving, and unforgettable tribute to man's best friend.
