Obviously as a dog owner, I am the prime audience for this book and i did enjoy it. Though I was a bit disappointed, to be honest. I thought there would have been more about the domestication of dogs and I was surprised by the lack. But this was a good book that functions more of a historical overview on the relationship between humans and dogs. Sections of it were downright heartbreaking (particularly the chapter on war dogs), but it really was just an overview, lacking in a lot of details. And some of that lack was explained since archaeologists and historians have typically tended to focus on humanity and even many war records were destroyed regarding dogs. I was surprised that the entire continent of Australia was mentioned, with their dingoes, only in passing. Still, it was a fast read and it did have enlightening sections. I guess my only real complaint was that I wanted more information!
