The author's incorrigible, adorable Labrador, Sally, shares her deep moral dillemas like whether or not to sleep on the sofa, steal a crumb from the kitchen counter, or stick her nose in everyone's business, and her thoughts on enduring concerns, appetites, and canines' relationships with their humans.

Review:

This hilarious adventure into the mind of an everyday dog will delight dog lovers. Illustrated with colorful woodblock prints of a black Labrador retriever (based on artist Stephen Huneck's own dog, Sally), this book captures the true spirit of doghood. Each portrait reflects another important doggy pursuit: food, socks, hogging the bed... Of great importance in the dog's day are petting and loving; dog ecstasy is perceived as a good belly rub. The latter half of the book, entitled "The Two Hemispheres of the Brain," portrays the amusing clash of emotions dogs are surely faced with each day. A dog brain has two hemispheres--the good dog portion and the bad dog portion. Dogs frequently fight the bad dog side: good dog wants to drink water from his bowl, bad dog wants to drink water from the toilet bowl--unfortunately, bad dog often wins. My Dog's Brain is a delightful book of conjecture about the workings of a dog's mind.

About the Author:

Stephen Huneck is an internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor, whose work often incorporates animals. His work has been widely exhibited and is included in important museum collections, including the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of American Folk Art. As he explains in his Introduction, Huneck began the series of woodcuts after suffering a near-death experience in which the very desire to make the prints, as well as the life-affirming messages they convey, figured profoundly in his recovery. He lives in Woodstock, Vermont.
