it was amazing
bookshelves: animals, adult, nonfiction, strong-female-character

Some time back in the 1990s, I first heard of Temple Grandin when I heard her speak at a school psychologists' conference. I was really impressed, of course, and I've read parts of some of her other books. But this one stands out to me, especially now that I'm dealing with my dog's behavioral issues. I wish dogs could still run around the neighborhood and explore all day, like they did when Temple was a kid (and even when I was a kid in the 1970s). She's probably right, that that was a golden age for pet dogs--now they can't really be "doggish," with leash laws and fenced-in yards and all the territoriality that creates. Anyway! Great book--one to own, not just check out from the library.
