Socially prominent humans have been known to hunt for their own photos when the latest issue of Town & Country magazine lands in their mailboxes. The next best thing? Finding photos of their dogs.
The editors of the magazine have cleverly gathered canine portraits that have appeared in its pages over the past 15 years in a new book, "Town & Country Dogs" (Hearst Books/Sterling Publishing, $14.95.) The dogs appear in stylish settings from Palm Springs to St. Bart's, some with their famous owners and some without. Check out Matthew Broderick and Sally, his cute border collie. They have the same smile.
"When we called to ask the owners for permission, nobody turned us down," says Pamela Fiori, Town & Country's editor in chief.
