( 1 )

Overview

The sound of toenails clicking across the kitchen floor, the thump of a tail responding to your voice in the dark, the jingling of tags on a collar—all are sounds welcomed by every dog lover. Just as we have grown fond of the antics and traits of our beloved pets, our dogs have grown accustomed to the sound of our keys unlocking the door, our hands reaching into a jar for a doggie treat, and our sharing a spot on the couch.

Overview

The sound of toenails clicking across the kitchen floor, the thump of a tail responding to your voice in the dark, the jingling of tags on a collar—all are sounds welcomed by every dog lover. Just as we have grown fond of the antics and traits of our beloved pets, our dogs have grown accustomed to the sound of our keys unlocking the door, our hands reaching into a jar for a doggie treat, and our sharing a spot on the couch. This mutual, unconditional affection between dog and human has created an unbreakable bond that transcends age, gender, and race. For the Love of Dog: 100 Reasons Why Man Is Dog's Best Friend celebrates the incomparable love that humans have for these lovable, furry friends. Ever since becoming a dog owner at the age of twelve, Tracy Ford's love for dogs has grown. His dog taught him about life but also about responsibility, making good decisions, and coping with death. The fluffy ball of fur taught him that almost always it is humans who have accidents, not their pets. The dynamic between pet and owner is not necessarily about what people receive from their pets or they receive from us, but what both give to each other. Filled with photographs depicting the bond between dogs and their owners, For the Love of Dog outlines why we can't get enough of muddy feet, dripping mustaches, barking at all times of the night and day, scaring the pizza man, and always having our backs protected. Why do we do it? For the love of dog, of course!
