Quake Dog - Boss

Quake Dogs is a beautiful and touching book about dogs during the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010-11 by Laura Sessions with photography by Craig Bullock. Published by Random House in October 2013, it includes stories of more than 70 dogs that are now living around the country, from Auckland to Dunedin.

These strange-but-true Christchurch earthquake dog stories are perfect for all dog lovers. There are true tales of heroism, odd and quirky stories, funny stories, sad stories - stories that will surprise you and make you chuckle.

Quake Dogs includes stories of USAR dogs that worked in the central city right after the February earthquake; Guinness, the unofficial mascot of the Student Volunteer Army; Nemo, who has a special gift for predicting earthquakes; dogs who were rescued and dogs who rescued others; and stories showing dogs' uncanny knowledge when trying to find their owners.


Laura is proud to be donating her portion of the book proceeds to HUHA, on behalf of Christchurch's Quake Dogs.

The Quake Dogs Book

Quake Dogs includes stories of USAR dogs that worked in the central city right after the February earthquake; Guinness, the unofficial mascot of the Student Volunteer Army; Nemo, who has a special gift for predicting earthquakes; dogs who were rescued and dogs who rescued others; and stories showing dogs' uncanny knowledge when trying to find their owners.

"When Quake Dogs arrived on my desk a few weeks ago, I was won over. The book is a tribute to canines who survived the Christchurch earthquakes - those who travelled miles to find their families; those who were trapped in buildings, terrified; those who helped in the rescue efforts and those who are still suffering the effects of the earthquakes two and a half years on."
Michele Crawshaw, New Zealand Herald
