Meet the Dogs of Brooklyn

From John Grogan‘s “Marley and Me” to Mark Doty‘s “Dog Years,” man’s best friend has served as a literary muse for years. One poet has added a New York City twist to this canine canon.

A few weeks ago, GalleyCat attended an opening reception for “The Dogs of Brooklyn”–a collection of poems by Susie DeFord matched with photographs by Dennis Riley.

This video feature looks at the show and interviews the project’s creators. As DeFord noted in her blog, the reading raised $200 for charity and the collection is still on display at Ozzie’s in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
