They like water but not the bath

Baby Tigers, Caney, KS 2008

I was happy to see an advance copy of “Tiger Pups” arrive this week from Harper Collins. I enjoyed working with tiger owners Tom and Allie Harvey on the book project and , of course, being near the baby tigers was amazing. For those who don’t know the story, the three baby white tigers were abandoned by their mother at birth. Isabella the golden retriever stepped in to raise the tiger “pups” as her own…that’s when the party started. I’ll be posting more pictures and stories from the photo shoots between now and June, when the the book goes on sale. You can pre-order Tiger Pups here <;.

  1. Ok, here is where I sound like a valley girl: omg how cute!!!!

    Keith, what a phenomenal project to work on! I have put the book in my Amazon shopping cart… .

  2. Oh, thanks. Check back today, I’m posting another tiger pic. Yes, it was a fun project to work on. These animals are visually stunning with the white coat and the blue eyes. What the pictures don’t show is how loud they are. Tigers chuckle which is somewhere between a purr and heavy breathing, only really loud.
