Chagrined to discover that her new German shepherd pup, Solo, was aggressive, rambunctious, and difficult to control, journalism professor Cat Warren looked into training Solo as a cadaver-search dog. Thus began a life-changing foray into the fascinating world of working dogs and their human handlers. What the Dog Knows is an utterly engrossing memoir of Warren's and Solo's rigorous training, and their ultimate transformation into a highly effective cadaver-finding team. It's also a well-researched and completely fascinating exploration of the science of the canine sense of smell and the history of dogs helping humans find people, bombs, drugs, bedbugs, cancer, and more (including, of course, dead bodies). Yes, the compelling, clear-eyed narrative is sometimes gruesome, but it's also funny, heartwarming, and endlessly enlightening. Dog-lovers will gain even more appreciation for their four-legged best friends! (AG)
