From acclaimed animal photographer Elke Vogelsang comes a charming, personal collection of portraits of her three dogs-Noodles, Scout, and Ioli. Nice Nosing You presents Elke's expressive portraits of her much-loved dogs; a collection compiled over two years in what became a personal and touching project for Elke and her husband, Carsten. One year on Christmas Day, Elke's dogs suddenly started barking outside the bathroom door. Investigating the commotion, Elke discovered Carsten collapsed in the bathroom. He had suffered a major brain haemorrhage and the dogs had in fact saved his life, discovering him at a crucial time. The months immediately following were filled with much uncertainty and in an attempt to establish some sort of routine and find something to lift her husband's mood, Elke started taking photos of their dogs to show Carsten in the hospital. As Carsten slowly recovered, Elke's project became an obsession. Gathered here in a stunning collection, Elke's photographs are captioned with inspiring quotes, illustrating the personal encouragement she and her husband found in these intimate and playful images. Praised by The Huffington Post-"Elke Vogelsang has taken dog portraits to a new level"-this is truly a collection to treasure.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a stunningly gorgeous photo book that combines photos of Vogelsang's three dogs with stories of her dogs, her family and quotes about dogs from famous people and characters. The writing and the photos are funny, sad, inspiring and all-around a wonderful tribute to man's best friend."
-"THE SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS"
"Not only did I enjoy the photos in [Vogelsang's] book, "Nice Nosing You," I was held captive by her back-story as well. Elke's love of her rescue dogs and deep love of her husband took this love of photography to a new level. I could feel the emotional journey of her work . . . I enjoyed this author's book from cover to cover and you will too."
