A brisk debunking of the tendency to regard dogs as four-footed members of the human family, lacking the ability to speak, but with all the other qualities a human being possesses, and a life-cycle which indulgently assumes one year of a dog's life to be equal to seven human years. Dogs are very different, and in this book details of those physiological differences and accounts for them - and for seeming similarities - by a fascinatingly informative look at the development of the dog from pre-history to the present day.
