In 2011, animal photographer Carli Davidson took a series of dogs portraits, mid-shake. Every dog owner (or unsuspecting passersby) know the shake well. What better way to rid oneself of excess water than a violent contortion of the body?

The photos were a worldwide hit garnering millions of views and putting the Portland-based photographer on the map. Earlier this week, Davidson released Shake, a 144-page hardcover book featuring sixty-one different dogs in 130 full-page portraits.

You can buy the book through your preferred online retailer by visiting shakethebook.com. To keep up with the latest from Carli, be sure to check her out at the online links below.
