Description - Gods, Ghosts and Black Dogs by Stanley Coren

Here is a rich collection of folklore, mythology, and tall tales concerning dogs. These provide a fascinating insight into the way in which humans think about dogs, and our emotional bond to our pets. The various stories include some that are spooky, some that are funny - and some that engage the same part of the mind that we use when reading detective stories, trying to figure out what is going to happen next, or solve a puzzle.The stories come from all over the world, and from many different time periods. In these captivating tales you can meet historical figures, such as George Washington and Davy Crockett, and mythical beings such as Paul Bunyan, the god Zeus and the hero Odysseus, and find out how dogs make up part of their stories. Find out how the Dalmatian got his spots, and why Basenjis don't bark. Learn whether there are dogs in heaven, and if the devil might have a dog.Facts, history, humor, and mysteries all blend together in this engaging collection of dog stories.
