Overview

The dog really did that? You’ll recognize your own dog in this entertaining collection of stories about the surprising, amusing, heartwarming things that our dogs do.

From dogs who chew shoes to dogs who mend relationships—from crazy canines who crack us up to intuitive ones who act like therapists —from dogs who need rescuing to dogs who rescue their owners— you’ll see your own dog with new appreciation for his or her unique skills and intuition.

With a special emphasis on the benefits and joys of adopting black dogs, senior dogs, and all the other types of dogs who get left behind, these stories may even motivate you to visit your local shelter. And your purchase of this book will help support the important, life-saving work of American Humane!
