Burns, whose love of dogs shows in every page, has done wonderfully expressive portraits of various dogs who have been in his life. Each dog has a short biography. He is "an artist with a cause" -- animal causes -- and donates time and money to shelters and rescue organizations. For instance he painted Sirius, a bomb detection dog who gave his life in the World Trade Center during 911. He donated his handler, Dave Lim, a one-of-a-kind reproduction of Sirius.
