About The Book

Explains how dogs bring out the humanity in people by dog owners' willingness to let themselves experience and express extreme sorrow and deep love in the presence of beloved canines.

Combining literary and historical tidbits with witty social insight, Dog Love explains everything from why we often admire presidential pets more than their owners to why our attachment to dogs is the ultimate expression of our humanity.
