Dogs. Early in our relationship with them, dogs lived on the fringes of villages or encampments, but it wasnt long before canines were welcomed into the heart of civilizationand into the hearts of women, men, and children.
Thousands of years before the birth of Christ, dogs assisted people on hunts, joined them in battle, carried their goods, and sat with them by the fire. The Talmud extols dogs as faithful companions and protectors, noting that God gave Cain a dog as a symbol of His mercy and divine protection. Some Christians believe that the shepherds who visited the baby Jesus brought dogs with them. And according to legend, Saint Patrick was guided by a large gray dog whose chest bore the mark of a white cross.
Today, we love our dogs for myriad reasons. They are loving, hilarious, playful, and loyal. They accept us, quirks and all, and hope we will do the same for them. They connect with us emotionally, often without making a sound. Maybe that is why almost half of all dogs sleep with their owners. And 87 percent of our canines watch TV with us.

He is an award-winning writer whose 50-plus books have sold more than 2 million copies (at least thats what Ive been told).

He really is a keeper, even though he did write 101 Amazing Things About Cat Lovers before writing his book on dogs. But I seriously could do without the nose drops.
