The book is called “Pick-Up Dogs” (http://pickupdogs.com) and it is a half academic, half personal journey into what our relationship with dogs tells us about our relationship with the world.
Do we try and tame our pets and the world to our every whim, or do we open ourselves up to the experience of wilderness that our pets and the world can provide?
Since it is set in a framework of meandering stories and postulates, the book feels like a journey of emotion and thought.
I think this book will really resonate with any pet owner who has seen how their relationship with the world around them changes after getting a dog. If you’ve read it, let us know what you think.
