Description
In 2003, Michael Schaffer and his wife drove to a rural shelter and adopted a runty, emaciated, dreadlocked Saint Bernard named Murphy. Vowing to treat their pet as a pet, they found themselves buying premium food, boarding him at "pet hotels," and putting him on doggy antidepressantsóbecoming solid contributors to the $43 billion (in 2008) pet industry. One Nation Under Dog is about America's pet obsession: the explosion, over the past generation, of an industry of pet masseuses, professional dog-walkers, organic kibble, leash-law militants, luxury pet spas, and veterinary grief counselors, in a world where pets have become our substitute children.
