FOR THE LOVE OF A DOG Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend

by | Read by Ellen Archer

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Mixing research by scientists and behaviorists with her own observations of dogs and their owners, Dr. McConnell presents compelling insights into the minds and hearts of man's best friend. McConnell's stories of her own "forever dog" establish solid credibility with anyone who has ever been blessed with such an animal. Ellen Archer's fresh voice maintains a lively tempo while dropping its timbre for ironic asides and projecting compassion when relating tales of unsuccessful rehabilitation attempts or a description of a dog's grief. The audiobook's one flaw is the lack of a companion CD or booklet containing the photographs and drawings presented in the print version. McConnell frequently refers to these in describing canine facial expressions, and without them we can only imagine.
