The bond between humans and canines is the emphasis of this compact and entertaining book, and anyone who has ever loved a dog will be likely to see themselves in the text. Starting with the history that brought dogs to domestic life, and then delving into breed classifications and spotlights of specific breeds, this is a book for someone looking for light but informative fare as they remember dogs past and cuddle their present furry companions. Charming drawings by This Is a Book for People Who Love Cats illustrator Rose complement the text. Confirmed dog person and poet Freitag (Edith) adds touches of humor with mentions of cornering fellow party guests with “Have you heard? Dogs exist.” The book points out what that excitement is really about: uncomplicated, unconditional love, boosts to owners’ physical and mental health, and so much more.
