'I learned a lot from Rowdy just about people's body attitudes and a freedom of expression in motion and how they related to Muybridge's motion studies.' (Bruce Weber, Hotel Room with a View).

A very scarce, privately published, photographic tribute to Weber's first golden retriever, Rowdy Palomino (1975-1992). Weber has used his beloved golden retrievers throughout his work and frequently name-checks them in his books' acknowledgements. For him they represent a honesty and homely ideal. The book was purportedly given to friends for Christmas in 1992. A dedication at the rear reads 'for bruce love nan'. Rowdy was named after Clint Eastwood's character Rowdy Yates in Rawhide.
