If you like your vino with a bit of bow wow factor, check out new book Wine Dogs New Zealand. It features 100 plus wineries and more than 150 stunning photos of their loyal pooches. Find out which mutt can lip read, who has a wet grass phobia and who sneaks out of the tasting room after dropping dastardly doggy gas bombs! Written by Craig McGill and Susan Elliott with photography by Kevin Judd, Wine Dogs New Zealand is a photographic journal incorporating beautiful pictures and great stories created for the love of dogs and top drops. --Virgin Blue In-flight magazine, Voyeur<br /><br />We love them, you love them and now the world loves the Wine Dogs books by Craig McGill and Susan Elliott. As we wait for Wine Dogs Australia 2 book due out in mid 2009, the second US Edition has hit the stores, this time containing more than 450 photos of pooches across America such as The Scheming Beagle and Robert Parker's latest bulldog, Buddy. Unfortunately the flatulent George of Mondovino fame has passed away. And next month, the first European tail-wagging tome showcasing Italian dogs, including the much-loved companions of winemaking legends such as the Frescobaldis and the Antinoris, will be available. While closer to home, NZ photographer Kevin Judd has captured Kiwi canines for the first book from across the Tasman. Watch this space for the South African, French and South American versions.

I wonder what goes through his mind, when he sees us peeing in his water bowl, muses Penny Ward Moser, in this light-hearted guide to the dogs of New Zealand wineries. Kevin Judd, who recently resigned as managing director of Cloudy Bay, has assembled more than 150 photographs of the purebreds and mutts that inhabit our wine cellars. They're a lovable lot, and you can learn all about their pet hates, favourite toys and naughtiest deeds. Two are called Cooper. --Michael Cooper, Listener New Zealand
