Editorial Reviews

Review

"What makes this book special is not so much the topics addressed but the smart, balanced, and humane way in which Hobgood-Oster engages the conversation. The book gives even those familiar with the great dog debates new perspectives to think about, and for those who are not already immersed in the field, this is an excellent place to start."―Anna Peterson, Professor, University of Florida

"A surpassingly beautiful reflection replete with graceful stories and moving realities, this elegant book will open up every reader to the history, breadth and depth of a profoundly interesting cross-species communion."―Paul Waldau, Associate Professor of Anthrozoology, Canisius College

"Filled with fascinating information and thoughtful reflection, this book should be read by anyone who loves dogs or wants to understand people."―Roger S. Gottlieb, author of Engaging Voices: Tales of Morality and Meaning in an Age of Global Warming (Baylor University Press, 2011) and Spirituality: What it Is and Why it Matters

"Our shared history with dogs, as Hobgood-Oster relates, makes one thing clear. We cannot live without them."―Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO, The Humane Society of the United States
