How well do you know your dog? Did you know that dogs have dreams and fears? That they do see colour, that they smell electric storms, and feel scent as an emotion? Jeffrey Masson takes us into the world of the dog, a world created by a sense of smell one hundred million times more acute than ours, and reintroduces us to man's best friend - loyal, honest, straightforward, spontaneous and almost unbelievably forgiving. Drawing on observations of his own three dogs, as well as true stories of dogs' friendship, heroism and loyalty, Masson makes us laugh, cry and think again about our canine companions, who, unlike humans, will never lie about love.

UK Kirkus Review »
Masson's ground-breaking book When Elephants Weep looked at the emotional lives of elephants. Now he's turned to dogs, and the material is rich. Here we have the fears, loves, sadnesses and even the dreams of dogs. This is a scholarly, sometimes daring book, fully backed up with notes and references, yet accessible, inviting and full of fascinating anecdotes. Two final chapters, 'Thinking like a dog' and 'In search of the soul of the dog' go to the heart of what a dog is, as has never been done before. This lovingly written book is certain to be of wide interest to all pet owners as well as others who enjoy animals. (Kirkus UK)
