I was very disturbed by this book. There are two things that bothered me greatly about this book. First, the author allows her dogs and dogs that she was fostering roam the streets, all day and night. She stated that she lived in an East Coast city. As a pet owner, it is your responsibility to care and protect your pets at all times. I was shocked to read how time and time again she let the dogs roam free. On some of these 'roamings' she, herself, would follow and watch her dogs cross busy streets. What was she trying to learn? The author mentioned she spent time observing wolves in the wild. Was she trying to see if domestic dogs would do the same? The second thing that bothered me about this book is how she chose not to have her dogs fixed, so there were several litters of puppies brought into the world. This is unfortunate because shelters around the country are filled with unwanted dogs, young and old.

Far and away, one of the most insightful books on animal behavior - period. This book will open doors that you never knew existed for you, your pet, and for the world to better understand our best friends. I cant say enough about this book - read it! -j

Ms. Thomas has done what no other person I know has done, and with a style impossible to resist. Countless millions have been spent on studying wild animals, yet this woman for years studied (as well as their wild cousins) an animal so many of us never bother to observe closely--domestic dogs--and wrote the most poignant account of 'four-legged people' I have experienced in years. She plucks the heartstrings and jerks the reader to tears without the slightest attempt to do so. I quite literally could not put it down until I read every single word! Like a classic movie one can savor over and over, I intend to read this book again! and again, and again...
