What People are Saying About This

Wayne Pacelle

Our shared history with dogs, as Hobgood-Oster relates, makes one thing clear. We cannot live without them.

Anna Peterson

What makes this book special is not so much the topics addressed but the smart, balanced, and humane way in which Hobgood-Oster engages the conversation. The book gives even those familiar with the great dog debates new perspectives to think about, and for those who are not already immersed in the field, this is an excellent place to start.

Paul Waldau

A surpassingly beautiful reflection replete with graceful stories and moving realities, this elegant book will open up every reader to the history, breadth and depth of a profoundly interesting cross-species communion.
