Description
He adopted his dog Stella from a shelter for all the usual reasons—fond memories of dogs from his youth, wanting a companion for his son, and looking forward to long walks around the neighborhood. But in making Stella part of the family, New York magazine editor John Homans found himself spending human-sized sums on vet bills, pondering his dog's diet and exercise regimens, and contemplating her happiness and quality of life, in marked contrast to his childhood, when his family dogs seemed quite content living mostly out in the yard. In this "smart, insightful, and engrossing ... field guide to the heart and soul of dogs and our intimate and enduring connection to them" (Susan Orlean), Homans explores the dog's complex and prominent place in our world and how it came to be.
