Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson has long been interested in the relationships between humans and animals, and he's always been aware that there was something very special in our bond with dogs. No other animals love us in quite the same way as dogs love us. And it is mutual. Is it possible that we developed our capacity for love, sympathy, empathy, and compassion because of our long association with dogs? Over the past 40,000 years a collective domestication has occurred that brings us to where we are today--humans have formed intense bonds with dogs, and the adoration is almost always reciprocal--a love affair unmatched in the animal world.--From publisher description.
