"Love at First Bark" is a little book that dog-lovers will enjoy
Posted Apr 12, 2012 in
This reporter has heard of this also, even here in San Francisco, the City of St. Francis - the patron saint of animals.
There are times when even the most caring and out-going of animal shelters
and adoption efforts are not able to find a home for every animal. Usually it is due to severe behavior issues, "spraying" or the inability to potty-train a pet. One dog in particular that Klam mentions is Clementine who had incontinence issues.
"Love at First Bark" also reminded me
of another book with similar theme
"Come Back Como" by journalist Steve Winn.
It is wonderful that a pet can make such a profound difference in one's life. And, what is even more amazing as
researchers are now uncovering is that dogs
(and cats) have a unique bond with humans.
It is a bond that has evolved over the centuries,
resulting in more than 400 breeds of dog in every shape and size.
What animal advocates want to say
is that dogs are gifts to humanity. They deserve our respect and our love. It really is amazing that in a very short time as t
he documentary program NOVA points out t
hat within a relatively short amount of time on the evolutionary scale, dogs adapted into pets and helpers for humans from the fierce wolf.
"Love at First Bite"
is also filled with descriptions of everyday life and those familiar with New York City, and urban settings, will also enjoy the book.
Klam's book has been receiving good reviews
and it is no wonder. Because, we all want to hear good things. And, what better good news that to hear that someone out there cares.
