At the core of this book is one leading question: How did we get from hunting with the Eurasian wolf…to buying an electrically heated daybed for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (among other species of Canis lupus familiaris)?

In answering the above question, author Simon Garfield provides readers with more than just "a celebration of dogs in all their intelligence, curiosity, beauty, and loyalty." Part natural history and part cultural history, Dog's Best Friend charts the path that humanity has walked with our canine brethren for more than 40,000 years. Garfield examines everything from canine evolution and the science and history behind the development of today's dog breeds, to what modern trends in dog names and the images we share of our dogs on social media say about the psychology and sociology behind our relationships with them. The end result is a book guaranteed to deepen the way you think about and appreciate all the dogs who have touched your life through the years (SGM)
