Warm and fuzzy

The photographs make this book special, although there is quite a bit of information about human/dog interaction on its pages too. The information isn't just facts - feelings and emotions are represented too.From the 10,000 year old tomb of a woman who was buried with her arm around her dog to the young people in the detention centre in California who train assistance dogs this bond between humans and dogs has held firm. The writer mentions some working dogs - sheep herders, sled dogs, guide dogs and drug sniffers but he makes it clear that most dogs are companion dogs who spend most of their time eating and sleeping.The writer did a good job of exploring the bonding and the emotional contact between people and their dogs without too much mawkish sentiment. There was even a brief mention of the darker side of the relationship - older dogs who are abandoned by their humans.But mostly this is a feel-good, happy book with wonderful photographs of people and their dogs. Read it to relax and enjoy.
