While I plan to write a more in-depth review at another time, let me leave you with just one of the many memorable quotes from this book:
No matter how close we are are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish - consciously or unconsciously - that we were as innocent as they are, and make us yearn for a place where innocence is universal and where the meanness, the betrayals, and the cruelties of this world are unknown. (page 264)
I am not sure which book I will begin for the next hour of the read-athon. I think I will do some skimming and see which one entices to me to read more.
