Editorial Reviews


"A collection of thought-provoking philosophical essays which cover a whole range of dog-related topics, such as whether dogs have the ability to appreciate designer products, do they have souls, why do they mean so much to us – and is it possible for them to love us in the same way? With contributions from numerous authors, there’s plenty of food for thought although not all of it is comfortable!" Rating: 8/10 – Your Dog, March 2009
