Summary
  • An eye-opening, informative, and wholly entertaining examination and celebration of the human-canine relationship
  • "The story of humans and dogs is thousands of years old but far from understood. Alexandra Horowitz explores this unique and complex interspecies pairing, considering the current culture of dogdom and the ways we live with dogs. We celebrate dogs' individuality but breed them for sameness. Despite our emotional relationships with dogs, legally they are property to be bought, sold, abandoned, or euthanized as we wish. Even the way we speak to our dogs is both perplexing and delightful. 'Our Dogs, Ourselves' affirms our profound affection for this most charismatic of animals -- and opens our eyes to the companions at our sides"--Back cover

Summary
We keep dogs and are kept by them. We love dogs and (we assume) we are loved by them. We buy them sweaters, toys, shoes; we are concerned with their social lives, their food, and their health. The story of humans and dogs is thousands of years old but is far from understood. In Our Dogs, Ourselves, Alexandra Horowitz explores all aspects of this unique and complex interspecies pairing
