This past weekend, one of Denver's largest (no pun intended) dog shelters, Big Dogs Huge Paws celebrated the release of its’ new book, “Saving Giants – The Rescue Story”. The wine tasting and book signing took place at Pirate: Contemporary Art Gallery in Denver. See the slideshow of the event below.
Through a series of beautiful and soulful photos by photographer Clair Bow of Rouxby Photography, the coffee table book represents what all dog owners, especially big dog owners, already know. No, it’s not another chew toy we can take home and leave on the table for our furry friends (unlike what they tend to think), but rather a touching and symbolic gesture towards the ever-lasting friendship that can be born out of rescuing a dog.
The book can be previewed and purchased on the shelters website, where you can also find adoptable dogs, events and more. Speaking of events, find Big Dogs Huge Paws at Spawlash in Thornton this Sunday from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. for their Clean Up For Spring April dog wash.
