A must-have gift book for any dog and ice cream lover, Dogs vs. Ice Cream is a hilarious collection of priceless reactions when cute canines sample our favorite frozen treat. Celebrity dog photographer Diana Lundin provides a fantastic and unforgettable collection of images, from pit bulls to Yorkies, from Doberman pinschers to springer spaniels, boxers, dalmatians, poodles, and every breed you can think of who might like a scoop of ice cream!

After working as a reporter, a television producer and a website editor, Diana Lundin struck career gold when she returned to photography, her first love. After a few snake-bitten forays into other genres of photography, Diana's eureka moment came when she began photographing her neighbors's dogs and cats and knew squeaking plush toys and waving pheasant feathers would be something she would be doing the rest of her life.

Diana began throwing Ice Cream Socials for Dogs in 2014 and gained a reputation in Los Angeles for her humorous images of dogs meeting the cone. She estimates she has photographed more than 400 dogs eating ice cream and she can never get over the expressions they make when their tongues meet the frozen confection.

Besides her regular pet photography, Diana creates composite art through her The Secret World of Pets website. There, dogs and cats enter worlds that don't really exist but look as if they could. And maybe should. If you see a tuxedo cat or a black one on that site, they're hers. She makes Kiwi and Mango work. Ha.They don't work. But Kiwi will be the one to take a lick of ice cream.

"Ring in the dog days of summer with, well, dogs in Diana Lundin’s hilarious and heartwarming photo book Dogs vs. Ice Cream. From coiffed golden retrievers to graying pugs, dozens of furry friends get their supermodel moment enjoying a refreshing—and dairy-free—ice cream cone, in varying degrees of success. Bright backgrounds set off the professional portraits, adding whimsical pops of color to contrast the dogs’ fur and accent the occasional pink tongue. Distinct pet personalities are on full display as they savor every lick, cringe with brain freeze, or brave the all-in-one approach, revealing a new detail with every return trip through the close-‘pup’ and personal shots. Required viewing for fans of man’s best friend, Dogs vs. Ice Cream is a crowd-pleasing addition to any coffee table collection—that is, if you can ever put it down!"

Until we can travel to one of these magnificent parties, we will have to entertain ourselves with the simple drive-up window and this delightful book. It would be a treasured addition to any dog lover’s collection.

Dogs vs. Ice Cream is all about the snout shot, in all its dripping, licking glory! Not unlike a school yearbook, Diana captured the unique and diverse personalities of all the dogs in each portrait. I found myself imagining all these dogs as people, each one with stories to be told, each one better than the next. The dogs are funny, confident, silly, dramatic, artsy, cute AF, and some maybe even savage. It’s amazing what one frosty little cone can do to bring out the inner kid in each of our pups.

Funny, charming, and a little bit heartbreaking, Diana Lundin’s remarkable photographs reveal the essence of each dog’s true spirit.
