This books is a pretty good attempt at helping readers understand what's going on in their dogs' heads. Horowitz urges readers to put aside the anthropomorphisms we naturally assign to our dogs to see what makes them dogs, and what makes them less wild that other dogs in nature.

The book is peppered with anecdotes of the author's activities about her beloved dog, Pumpernickel, which work well to illustrate her points.

I recommend this to anyone who wants to know a little more about their dog's experience of the world. It made me come home and give mine an extra hug.
