“Kim Roderiques has shared the unleashed joy of canines captured in mid-frolic in Dogs on Cape Cod. . . A celebration both of dogs and the natural beauty of the Cape. . . Roderiques’s settings are perfect frames for the more than 200 dogs pictured, some captured in joyful play, others posing for portraits. . . A useful reference to dog breeds, a vicarious vacation to coastal Massachusetts and a stunning collection of portraiture and nature photography, Dogs on Cape Cod is a warm, enjoyable coffee-table book. –Cheryl Krocker McKeon, Book Passage, San Francisco, in Shelf Awareness

“Brimming with photographs of adorable pups of all shapes and sizes, Dogs on Cape Cod makes for a feel-good and fun addition to your coffee table stack. From miniature Australian shepherds to Great Danes, dachshunds to Pembroke Welsh corgis, Kim has beautifully captured the many adorable breeds that romp around the Cape. You might want to pick up a few copies for your fellow canine-loving buddies.” –The Boston Herald

“If, like me, you are lucky enough to have been to Cape Cod with a dog, you will treasure these evocative images of the wild beauty of one of the most wondrous places in America.  If you haven’t been to Cape Cod with a dog, my advice is first, get a dog, second, feast your eyes on this marvelous book and then third, get yourself to Cape Cod, you’ll thank me.” —W. Bruce Cameron, author of A Dog’s Purpose

“‘Every dog has a story,’ says photographer Kim Roderiques, and she proves it in her glorious new book Dogs on Cape Cod. One of the distinguishing characteristics of Roderiques’s photos is that they are often taken from the eye level of her subjects. ‘They call me the whisperer,’ Roderiques says. ‘I make crazy sounds’ to keep her subject’s attention. Of the dogs who stare into Roderiques’s lens, a great many seem to be smiling. Roderiques begins her book with a quote, ‘Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.’ Roderiques knows how to listen.” –The Cape Cod Chronicle

“Dogs on Cape Cod has 205 dogs, representing 95 breeds, plus mixed breeds. A quarter of the dogs are rescues. The amazing thing about talking with Roderiques is that if you mention any of the 225 photographs, she can immediately tell you the dog’s story.” — –The Cape Cod Times

“It’s clear these dogs, as captured with humor and love by Kim Roderiques, know they’ve found the best place on earth, and they’re enjoying every moment. Good lesson for us all! Seeing these pups bask in the glory of Cape Cod, makes me want to jump in my car and be there too!” –Martha MacCallum, News Anchor on the Fox News Channel and Chatham resident.

“I was sitting in Arizona when I received Dogs on Cape Cod. Seeing the joy these dogs had playing on the beaches and in the marsh grasses on the Cape carried me back to my family visits in Harwich. The dogs are so full of life, it just made me smile.”—Betsy King, LPGA Hall of Fame golfer and founder of Golf Fore Africa
