My dog pal, Beckett, and I are reading an advance copy of Being A Dog by Alexandra Horowitz, due out in October, in time for the holidays. Horowitz is the well known author of the NYTBS Inside of A Dog. This work covers the world of smell according to dogs and we are loving it. It has been a fascinating journey to discover how the world of the dog is informed and formed by the world of smell and the nose of the dog. This book is good for dog lover, owners, and the people who love the owners.
