Read if you: Are wondering if your dog loves you only because you have opposable thumbs and can operate a can opener. 

If you were to ask dog owners, "Does your dog love you?" they would probaby answer in the affirmative. But would they know why? Clive D.L. Wynne set out to investigate the ins and outs of canine affection and devotion, conducting studies with shelter dogs, wolves living at a wolf sanctuary, and his own dog, among others, 

Although some technicalities of the research may daunt some readers, this is a minor distraction in an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying read. (And it's understandable why it's there, in order to defend his conclusions).

I love the sweet cover of this book. I enjoyed reading this book and learning about the emotions of a dog.

Very compelling argument about dogs' emotional intelligence being more important to our bonds with them than their cognitive intelligence.  Great science told through great stories.
