Dogs are our oldest friends. When a wolf first came to crouch by our
fire, cats were wild beasts searching out their own prey, and horses
still ran at the first sniff of our approach. Welleran Poltarnees has a
lifelong love for dogs, and here in this book he distills his love for
them into words. He praises them for their unwavering love, their ready
sympathy, their fresh delight in simple pleasures, and their sometimes
unconscious humor. He has made each statement more resonant by the
addition of pictures, frequently from obscure sources.
