"There's just something about that dog . . ." Until now, little
else could be said about George Rodrigue's mysterious, wildly popular
icon. Finally, in his own words, the Blue Dog Man speaks out, shedding
light on his creation-going beyond the story of Blue Dog's early
incarnation to describe in rich detail both the dog's storied Cajun
roots and its brilliant, pop-infused universe of today.

Blue Dog has
become a touchstone of contemporary American culture, winning accolades
from U.S. presidents, Hollywood stars, and ordinary people alike. Woven
into this iconic character are the skeins of Cajun history-and, more
specifically, the dreams, fears, and passions of its creator.

Rodrigue: Blue Dog Man takes readers on an unprecedented narrated
journey to the heart of a new Blue Dog generation, tracing the evolution
of the Blue Dog from its origins in Louisiana legends to its myriad
forays into the dazzling, multichrome modern world. Along the way,
Rodrigue reflects on everything from Christianity and the afterlife to
Renaissance painting, to Jackson Pollock to Andy Warhol and MTV.

I choose the dog over the Blue Dog Man. That'll give you enough good blues. Rip up the cover, for it's good to use as a coaster. Want it? Boo-hoo. That was a mistake.

This one sits on a shelf so the cover faces outward so the Blue Dog is always 'in the room'.
