Dog World and the Humans Who Live There
by Alfred Gingold
A wry excursion through the studied, obsessive, colorful, demanding, occasionally lunatic world of contemporary dog ownership.
“Dog World is an enchanting read – the funniest book I have ever read about dogs. A tour de force of humor, common sense and uncommon (but utterly infectious) love of dogs.”
– Jeffrey Masson, author of Dogs Never Lie About Love and When Elephants Weep
“As the owner of a Tibetan terrier, I thought I knew all there was to know about dogs. How wrong I was. Alfred Gingold’s book, Dog World, gave me fresh insights into the odd and wacky dog universe, and made me howl with laughter. It is smart, tender and oh-so-surprising. Plus, it has the single funniest line ever written about an internist. Every dog owner will want to read this book. Every dog will want to eat it.”
– Betsy Carter, author of Nothing to Fall Back On
