Catahoula: Louisiana State Dog
Catahoula is more than just a dog picture-book. The origins began in 1993, when photographer John Slaughter was commissioned by a Catahoula-themed restaurant located in Calistoga, California. Following that project, he continued to photograph the Louisiana State Dog. What makes Catahoulas such an interesting subject is that they come in so many different colors, including their eyes. Many of the most striking images are of the dogs' faces. They have an other-worldly stare that says "I am an individual, I am thinking, I am watching, do not assume that I am like other dogs." Included in this book are several owner articles as well as a section entitled "Cowdogs and Cowboys," as Catahoulas are known for their herding instincts.
Slaughter has been exhibiting photos since 1975 and has brought his composition skills and color sense to bear here.

A Tip Tap Tale
BouZou, a singing, guitar playing hound dog is happy at home in his Louisiana swamp performing for the mudbugs and bullfrogs and stars above. When a cat named Slick Jim Jack shows up and entices BouZou to perform in the big city of New Aw-Leens, he can’t resist the tales of a gold guitar, t-bone steaks, and endless rubber balls. This Tip Tap Tale follows BouZou and Slick Jim Jack as they amble along, howling and singing a hound dog song with a triple twist and turn about—performing for the cheering, adoring crowds in New Aw-Leens. But an unshakable nemesis could spell trouble for BouZou and his newfound fame. Be-bop along with the colorful characters and lyrical language that make A Tip Tap Tale a fun-to-read romp through the swamps and big city of a jazzy Louisiana landscape.
