Gods, Ghosts, and Black Dogs

Gods

This compulsively readable collection of dog stories blends fact, history, humour, and mystery to neatly illustrate the age-old deeply rooted bond between humans and dogs. Stanley Coren spans the globe as he shares folklore, mythology, and tall tales gathered the world over, addressing an array of canine-related questions, such as Why do Dalmatians have spots? and Are there dogs in heaven?, along with stories like how a dog myth changed modern psychotherapy. Deeply engaging, this compelling far-reaching look at our deep relationships with our dogs demonstrates the undeniable impact they have had on our lives and the depth and duration of our relationship with canines.
