It was a summer day at the dog park when Fred Levy, a professional pet photographer, overheard a conversation that he couldn't shake off.A woman was talking about "Black Dog Syndrome" – a theory that black dogs are less likely to be adopted than those with lighter coats, perhaps because of superstition or a notion that black dogs are aggressive. That dog park visit was almost two years ago, but it inspired Levy to take on a project that's still gaining international attention.Part of the proceeds will go to a rescue group for Labradors in San Diego.In the book and on his blog, Levy includes stories about each dog to counter myths about black dogs. Among those he highlights is Denver, a 2-year-old black Labrador that's also a therapy dog.
