    Today's review! Must Love Dogs by Eden Winters:

    "When his elderly neighbour falls ill, Nathan steps in to look after his dog Oscar... an uncomplicated joy of a read, with a happy ending for man and dog. Both find their forever homes."

    Through a Dog's Eye
    Understanding Our Dogs by Understanding How They See the World
    An inspiring book with the power to change the way we understand and communicate with our dogs.

    Few people are more qualified to speak about the abilities and potential of dogs than Jennifer Arnold, who for twenty years has trained service dogs for people with physical disabilities and special needs.

    “It is a strange fact that the population of dogs and dog breeds that we enjoy today largely emerged as a hobby for bored aristocrats in a tiny sliver of English history—during a period in which classification, measurement, and standardization became a national obsession.”

    I agree with him on this...... Think. Dogs are one of the most sweetest, loyal living creatures. Why should being called a dog be an insult?

    The public library I used to work at hosted a couple events where children got to read to dogs from the shelter. I forget the organization's name, but I knew about it since college. It was one of most popular scheduled programs even though the children's department did smell of dog for a while.

    It's ! There are several from that we still know today, like Kerberos guarding the entrance to the underworld, Odysseus' faithful dog Argos who was the only one who recognised him in his disguise, and Hekuba, the Queen of Troy, who became Hekate's constant companion in the shape of a big black bitch.
