The author is a cognitive scientist who explains how dogs perceive their daily worlds, each other, and us. She introduces the reader to dogs' perceptual and cognitif abilities and then draws a picture of what it might be like to be a dog. What's it like to be able to smell not just every bit of open food in the house, but also to smell sadness in humans, or even the passage of time? How does a tiny dog manage to play successfully with a Great Dane? What is it like to hear the bodily vi=brations of insects or the hum of a fluorescent light? Why must a person on a bicycle be chased?
This is a fun, fascinating, insightful book that will bring you about as close as you can get to understanding your dog.
