Summary
This is "a group portrait of dog people, specifically the strange, wonderful, neurotic, and eccentric dog people who gather at Amory Park, overlooking Boston near Fenway Park. And it's about author Matthew Gilbert's transformation, after much fear and loathing of dogs and social groups, into one of those dog people with fur on their jackets, squeaky toys in their hands, and biscuits in their pockets"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
A Boston Globe critic's tribute to dog parks and their significance in the lives of pet lovers and canines describes his reluctant journey into the eccentric and affirming park subculture after becoming a first-time dog owner
