Playful, endearing, and clearly profound, The Tao of Pug looks at the big picture from the eyes of a little dog.
Meet Wilson the Pug, a dog with a great deal of wisdom to share. A much-admired spiritual teacher, Wilson lives by the principles of the Tao Te Ching, the ancient Chinese text on the art of living. Passed on through the generations from his ancestor Pug-tzu—companion to the philosopher and author of the Tao Te Ching, Lao-tzu —the wisdom of the Tao has helped Wilson lead a simple, peaceful, and fulfilling life.
Deciding it was time to share this spiritual knowledge, Wilson enlisted the help of his owner (and photographer), Nancy Levine, to bring you The Tao of Pug. Each photograph captures Wilson’s charm and humor as he illustrates the timeless principles of the Tao Te Ching with examples from his active life alongside quotes from the original text. With his adorably expressive face, funny poses, and trademark yin-yang coat, Wilson has an unmistakable magnetism that has won him countless admirers, of all canine and philosophical persuasions.
Wilson’s comical lessons on life pair beautifully with Levine’s delightful photographs to make The Tao of Pug a must-have book for pug lovers of any age.
