Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is 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?

Having experienced a profound bond with his own dog, Benjy—a failed guide dog for the blind who possesses an abundance of uninhibited love—author Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson knows dogs reciprocal affection is not unique, but exemplifies a love affair unequaled in the animal world. In The Dog Who Couldnt Stop Loving, Masson considers the far-reaching consequences of the coevolution of dogs and humans with wisdom, insight, and a brilliant analysis of recent scientific findings, delivering a compelling, provocative book that will change the way we think about love and our canine companions.

Synopsis:

Dog lovers get ready - Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, international bestselling author of Dogs Never Lie About Love (which the San Francisco Chronicle calls "winning and wise," and "a charming paean to our best friends"), is back with an inspiring, heart-warming, and deeply personal exploration of the unique relationship between humans and dogs. As in When Elephants Weep, The Face on Your Plate, an The Pig Who Sang to the Moon, Masson blends cultural mythology, scientific research, and stories of his own experiences to tackle deep questions about the emotional lives of humans and animals. His compelling, elegant, and often humorous narrative about the love people feel for dogs (perfect for fans of John Grogan's Marley & Me) gives a new perspective on the extraordinary relationship between our species.
