Vintage Vogue with Dogs!!!

Everyone knows I love vintage, I particularly adore vintage Vogue photoshoot's but I also lurrve dogs!
So a super friend got me "Dogs in Vogue"... who knew such a glossy book existed!
I thought I'd share just a snippet of the sumptuous pooch mad images.
I mean's a whole book (and a big one at that) dedicated to Vogue photoshoot's over many decades, all featuring dogs...I love it!!!
