Summary
  • "There is no question that the dog inhabits a singular position in relation to humans, one no other animal occupies. Much has been written about the bond between humans and dogs, about the emotional lives of dogs, about how to train, live with, and love your dog. But where did this bond originate, what is it based on, and what distinguishes it from the way we feel about any other animal? And why are humans as important to dogs as they are to us? What explains the extraordinary relationship between dogs and humans?"
  • "Jon Franklin, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and science writer, set out on a twenty-year quest to answer those very questions. Building on his research and his knowledge of evolutionary science, archaeology, neurochemistry, psychological evolution, and behavioral science, as well as the firsthand experience of watching his own dog, a soulful, clever poodle named Charlie, evolve from puppy to family member, Franklin posits that man and dog are more than just inseparable, they are part and parcel of the same creature."--BOOK JACKET
