Darwin’s Dogs: How Darwin’s Pets Helped Form a World-Changing Theory of Evolution by Emma Townshend
Turns out Darwin was a tremendous dog lover and thinking about dogs helped him figure things out at many important points in his life – including his theory of evolution and his decision to get married!
The Other End of the Leash by Patricia McConnell
Beautifully written and so perceptive about dogs and their people. One book everyone who lives with dogs should have within easy reach at all times.
The Call of the Wild by Jack London
Full of misunderstandings of the true nature of dogs and yet any book that can engage children to care about the welfare of animals surely has to be high on a list of must-reads.
