A pioneering canine behaviorist draws on cutting-edge research to show that a single, simple trait--the capacity to love--is what makes dogs such perfect companions for humans, and to explain how we can better reciprocate their affection.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had been studying dogs for several years before I finally decided to get one. I had been spending so much time with people and their dogs that I felt strange coming home to a dogless house. My family decided to get a dog, and they found one at a shelter that I wasn’t familiar with. #2 The author went to visit the shelter with his family, and found that the dogs there were not welcoming at all. They exhibited behaviors that seemed the opposite of welcoming, and the author didn’t feel safe conducting research there. #3 I had lived with dogs before, and I knew how warm their response to my species could be. Yet when I brought Xephos home, her affectionate nature did not make sense to me at first. It was not until I began to question other aspects of the received wisdom about dogs that I realized how special they are. #4 Hare was interested in the social intelligence of chimpanzees, and he tested them to see if they could understand the implications of a simple pointing gesture. The chimpanzees failed, but his dog Oreo could understand the gesture and find the food hidden under the cups.

Dogs have been our muses, our mentors, and our playful and noble co-pilots. They’ve had a profound influence on us as healers and spiritual guides, and also as co-workers, helping to guide, hunt, herd, search, and rescue. Our bond with dogs is deep and unbreakable, and there’s no better source a reader can turn to for a richer understanding of that complex and wonderful relationship than The Bark. The Bark began as a newsletter in Berkeley, California, that advocated for an off-leash area where dogs could cavort and play. Within a few years it had become a full-fledged, award-winning glossy magazine that published work by some of the best writers in America today. And as it grew, the magazine embraced a much larger canvas: to cover the emerging phenomenon of “dog culture” that has been developing over the past decade, as dogs have moved out of the backyard and into our homes, communities, and, indeed, the very center of our lives. As editor Claudia Kawczynska writes, “The implications of integrating another species into society’s daily fabric go well beyond how we nurture our dogs. It calls for a revamping of the standard etiquette—respecting the concerns and interests of society at large. This new relationship, along with an appreciation for our rich and unbounded future, comprises what we call dog culture. This is what The Bark set out to chronicle.” Dog Is My Co-Pilot is an anthology of essays, short stories, and expert commentaries that explores every aspect of our life with dogs. Fifty percent of the material here has never been published before. The book is divided into four sections: Beginnings explores that first meeting, “the initial murmurings when a dog-human relationship is formed.” Pack investigates the theme of “togetherness” and pays tribute to the dynamic of multiple personalities in the canine-human relationship. Lessons examines what dogs teach us, from love to enlightenment. The final section, Passages, reflects on the themes of true friendship, transformation, and loss. Included are pieces by Lynda Barry, Rick Bass, Maeve Brennan, Margaret Cho, Carolyn Chute, Alice Elliott Dark, Lama Surya Das, Pam Houston, Erica Jong, Tom Junod, Caroline Knapp, Donald McCaig, Nasdijj, Ann Patchett, Michael Paterniti, Charles Siebert, Alexandra Styron, Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, and Alice Walker. In selections that are humorous, poignant, truthful, sometimes surprising, and frequently uplifting, Dog Is My Co-Pilot embraces the full experience of the world’s oldest friendship. For people who love great writing and, yes, great dogs, it’s a book to be both shared and treasured.

A bold, provocative history of our species finds the roots of civilization’s success and failure in our evolutionary biology. We are living through the most prosperous age in all of human history, yet people are more listless, divided and miserable than ever. Wealth and comfort are unparalleled, and yet our political landscape grows ever more toxic, and rates of suicide, loneliness, and chronic illness continue to skyrocket. How do we explain the gap between these two truths? What's more, what can we do to close it? For evolutionary biologists Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein, the cause of our woes is clear: the modern world is out of sync with our ancient brains and bodies. We evolved to live in clans, but today most people don't even know their neighbors’ names. Traditional gender roles once served a necessary evolutionary purpose, but today we dismiss them as regressive. The cognitive dissonance spawned by trying to live in a society we're not built for is killing us. In this book, Heying and Weinstein cut through the politically fraught discourse surrounding issues like sex, gender, diet, parenting, sleep, education, and more to outline a provocative, science-based worldview that will empower you to live a better, wiser life. They distill more than 20 years of research and first-hand accounts from the most biodiverse ecosystems on Earth into straight forward principles and guidance for confronting our culture of hyper-novelty.

Join Andrew Cotter and his superstar Labradors, Olive and Mabel, as he takes a clear-eyed, often hilarious walk through the ups and downs of a year that encompasses all of life from the crushingly mundane to the weird and wonderful. Followed everywhere by whispers of 'Is that really Olive and Mabel?' - not to mention the occasional Hollywood approach - the three of them pad around literary festivals, breakfast TV, live radio and even an appearance on Good Morning America. Slightly bemused by their fame, Andrew not only pitches up in the iconic Mastermind chair, but makes a return to sports broadcasting to find that it has become rather strange as well. But, always, his pair of utterly endearing, endlessly optimistic and eternally hungry canine companions show just how precious our time is. Especially our time spent in the devoted company of dogs. For fans new and old, this witty, insightful account of a year like no other is an unmissable treat.

Inspiring stories of how both people and dogs with the odds stacked against them give each other a new start in life from the founder of Dog’s Nation. When Shawn Abell founded Dog’s Nation, her purpose was to save dogs and train them as service dogs for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder or veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. In pairing these dogs with individuals with special needs, Dog’s Nation ultimately saves two lives instead of just one. Miracle Moments offers readers the opportunity to meet some of the special animals Dog’s Nation has rescued. There’s Jack who gently coaxed a veteran with PTSD out of the darkness where he’d been living for so long; Max, a scruffy little terrier who brought emotional healing to a girl with autism; Amy, a terrier-mix who averted a near-drowning; Charm, a golden retriever who gave an autism family a new lease on life; and so many more true stories that will inspire and warm your heart. Royalty proceeds from the sale of this book go to Dog’s Nation. Thank you for your support.

Every dog owner knows intuitively that there's something special about the high degree of mutual understanding and empathy that exists between humans and their proverbial best friends. Now, an internationally renowned Hungarian ethologist (a specialist in the scientific study of animal behavior) traces the roots of this unique relationship back to the unusual circumstances in which the two species co-evolved over many millennia. Drawing in part on close observations of his own two pet dogs, Flip and Jerry, the author argues that the longstanding alliance of dogs and humans arose from behavioral traits present in the original wolves from which all modern dogs are descended. Wolves, like humans, are highly intelligent social predators, with well-developed cooperative problem-solving and communications skills, giving them distinct advantages in their developing relations with humans. These basic intellectual skills were refined and enhanced over tens of thousands of years, resulting in the enormously varied "artificial animals" we see today. Although the book's specific focus is on dogs, it ranges far afield to discuss in an easy-going, accessible style recent experimental and theoretical work on the behavior of other animals, and especially on their interactions with humans. A highly personal work, If Dogs Could Talk makes the case that the social and emotional bonds between dogs and humans are indeed special, and that they ought to form the basis for our treatment of dogs. Moreover, the author concludes, by closely observing the cognitive behavior of dogs, we can also learn a good deal about how the human mind works.

I have crossed the perfect bridge many times. If I didn’t look for the bridge, I’d be perpetually stuck in the face of a rut. Sometimes the bridge is easy to see when the way seems impassable. Other times, I have had to search, sometimes plead, to be shown the way. Curiously, the bridge is always the same one. It looks a bit different to me in every season, but the journey across has become increasingly inviting. It is also becoming increasingly easier to recognize. In this book of poems and Scripture meditations, I invite you to join me for my walk. Listen with me a moment to the birds singing. Visualize the miraculous growth of a tree. Contemplate the colors of autumn’s reflections, and bundle up to make some footprints as we walk together across the icy snow. The bridge will hold us, and I believe we will, together, find joy in the journey through the seasons of life.
