From the Author
"Whenever I see a dog watching something, that absorbed look in his eyes, ears pricked, muzzle quivering - either out on the window or at a birdperched on a branch - I ask myself: what goes through my darlingdog'smind? Is he waiting for someone? Surely dogs have an internal bodyclock; if you had a pet, you've definitely noticed how perceptivedogs are towards their environment and especially towards us, their, um,pack members.
"Still, what exactly goes through a dog's mind?What kind of questions do they ask themselves? How do dogs understandlife? When they look at a snail, for example, besides its scent, whatelse do they take in? And how does a dog feel when... a cat is suddenlyintroduced to the family?
"These questions stood behind the poems and haiku from As Good as Gold
- as engaging as a tail wag."
