About this title


There are chapters on how dogs see and hear, how they communicate with each other and their owners, and what they most like and most detest about their "best friends." Sex, hunting, growing old, and the spiritual life of dogs are also discussed. Dido is a particular authority on what makes a good dog owner, and takes Pincher to task on numerous occasions for his shortcomings.
Told in a manner befitting this most literate of Labradors, this is a funny, touching, and perceptive look at the intimate bond between dogs and people, leaving no doubt as to which is the more perfect creature.


It's hard to classify this title: not entirely humor but certainly not nonfiction, it describes a dog's life as written by a 'dog' and translated by an owner. From dog communications and dog's-eye view of human behavior patterns /to a fun celebration of food, this packs in many fun, intriguing observations of dog behavior. -- Midwest Book Review
