If dogs could drive, where would they go and what would they do?
Author and photographer Mark Asher sets out to answer these yet-pondered canine queries with Bark and Ride. With its full-color pictures, storytelling, and canine road signs, this collection of photographic creativity captures man's best friend in countless vehicles and comical situations.
We find a magnificent mastiff atop a tractor, plowing the fields for buried treasures; a bloodhound in a police car, patrolling the streets for deadbeat dog owners; and a precocious poodle at the helm of a trolley car, taking his friends for a downtown shopping spree.
The engine is roaring, the road is ready, and the dogs are rearing to Bark and Ride!
