Most books haven’t captured my attention long enough or I just forget to read them, and with the 26 books to read this year goal I set for myself it’s not looking good.
How Dogs Love Us by Gregory Berns not only captured my attention but left me wanting more whenever I had to put the book down.
I’m a animal lover and a science nerd (hello, I’m majoring in Biology!) This book discusses berns relationship with Callie, along with his other dogs and his family. Trust me when I say that this book is not filled with boring science mumbo jumbo, Yes it does state facts to back up his research but Berns states these facts in a way that helps you understand then and want to keep reading. Also it does have a couple of pictures, like the interesting comparison of a dog’s brain to a human’s brain, and he goes writes about the tough process of not only training a dog to step inside an MRI, but to stay still for 30 seconds while wear ear muffs.
I suggest this book for any animal lover who has ever wondering how their dog feels about them and what they think.
