|Hounds in Hats Calendar | Maverick Arts Publishing|
With 12 canines to warm up your year, there's a hat and hound for every occasion! From a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever sporting a Saint Patrick's Day hat, a Beagle wearing a motorcycle helmet with goggles to a Golden Retriever wearing a captains' hat with smoking pipe.
The calendar titled “Hounds in Hats” was created by Ardea photo library in collaboration with the Maverick Arts Publishing in West Sussex, United Kingdom.

The images from the calendar were created with “set-ups” by trained animal handlers while others were created digitally via computer. According to the Daily Mail, Maverick Steve Bicknell, managing director of Maverick Arts said: “My soft spot is the cover image, the dog in the cloth cap. “I love the look on his face and the warmth of his expression and the inquisitiveness. The hat really gives you the character of the dog.”
