OFF THE LEASH is a group portrait of dog people, specifically the strange, wonderful, neurotic, and eccentric dog people who gather at Amory Park, overlooking Boston near Fenway Park. And it's about author Matthew Gilbert's transformation, after much fear and loathing of dogs and social groups, into one of those dog people with fur on their jackets, squeaky toys in their hands, and biscuits in their pockets. Gilbert, longtime TV critic at The Boston Globe, describes his reluctant trip into the dog park subculture, as the first-time owner of a stubbornly social Yellow Lab puppy named Toby. Like many Americans, he was happily accustomed to the safe distance of TV viewing and cell-phone web surfing, tethered to the digital leash. But the headstrong, play-obsessed Toby pulls him to Amory, and Amory becomes an exhilarating dose of presence for him. The joyous chaos of wrestling dogs and the park's cast of offbeat dog owners - the "pack of freaks" - gradually draw him into the here and now. At the dog park, the dog owners go off the leash, too. Dog-park life can be tense. When dogs fight, their owners - such as the reckless Charlotte - bare their teeth at each other, too. Amid the rollicking dog play, feelings tend to surface faster, unedited. But Gilbert shows how Amory is an idyllic microcosm, too, the home of enduring friendships and, as the droll but vulnerable Hayley knows, romantic crushes. Meeting daily, a gathering of dog owners can be like group therapy, or The Office, or a standup concert. As a TV critic, Matthew Gilbert is well-known by his readership for his humorous and wry writing style. A charming narrative that will appeal to anyone who has ever enjoyed watching a puppy scamper through a park, OFF THE LEASH is a paean to dog lovers and their pets everywhere, perfect for fans of Marley & Me and Merle's Door.

Gemma Correll's whimsical illustrations capture all Fido's moods from perky scamp to loyal, obedient protector. Although this book does present a vast array of canine shenanigans purely for our amusement, be forewarned—you'll also get some startling insights into what your dog is really thinking about you (and, it may not always be complimentary—not that you will really mind). You see, dogs have insinuated themselves into our lives as no other creatures could. What's more, they know they'll always have a place in our hearts. Why else do we lavish them with yummy treats and belly scratches? There's something about a wagging tail and a soulful stare that's just too hard to resist.

In a simple style that gives a dog's perspective of the world from a foot off the ground, Foxy shares his life story and his views on topics that a dog knows best. Lost, mistreated and abandoned, he is fearful of people, noises, and sudden movements. Rescued by Jay and Ellie, over time he grows to trust and love his humans and his dog pals. Along with feisty observations about the behavior of humans, cats, deer, and sheep, he shares the inside scoop on sniffing and barking, his instinctual needs for hiding in a cave, wandering off to explore new territory, or scavenging for food. We experience his delight in all of his senses throughout the seasons--fragrant flowers and leaves, crinkly leaves underfoot, the crunch of snow, and the fresh scent from a just-cut Christmas tree. Foxy takes us with him to dog parks, frolics at the beach, and an assortment of kennels, hotels, and coffee shops. He deals with his own injuries and Jay's illness with a dog's understanding of the world. Foxy's unique voice can be compared to the dogs of Peter Mayle in A Dog's Life or Garth Stein in Racing in the Rain. He artfully brings the reader's attention to his level, where smell is everything and he is always on the lookout for a morsel of food. His humorous riffs on food and his frequent confusion about what the humans are saying and why things happen give a poignancy to the pain and loss he experiences. The leash that he is so eager to be released from so he can explore his environment also provides a feeling of connection to his humans. In the end, despite his lifelong fear of those who might hurt him, he is tenacious in surviving the challenges of life and it is his bond with humans that matters the most.

As an unabashed dog lover, Alexandra Horowitz is naturally curious about what her dog thinks and what she knows. As a cognitive scientist she is intent on understanding the minds of animals who cannot say what they know or feel. This is a fresh look at the world of dogs -- from the dog's point of view. The book introduces the reader to the science of the dog -- their perceptual and cognitive Abilities -- and uses that introduction to draw a picture of what it might be like to bea dog. It answers questions no other dog book can -- such as: What is a dog's sense of time? Does she miss me? Want friends? Know when she's been bad? Horowitz's journey, and the insights she uncovered from studying her own dog, Pumpernickel, allowed her to understand her dog better, and appreciate her more through that understanding. The reader will be able to do the same with their own dog. This is not another dog training book. Instead, Inside of a Dogwill allow dog owners to look at their pets' behaviour in a different, and revealing light, enabling them to understand their dogs and enjoy their relationship even more.
