Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell and Know
by Alexandra Horowitz
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Publication Year: 2009
Format: Trade Paperback
From the back cover:
“What might it be like to be a dog?
- What’s it like to be able to smell not just every bit of food in the house, but also to smell the sadness in humans, or even the passage of time?
- Why must a cyclist be chased, and what’s it like to use your mouth as a hand?
- In short, what is it like to experience life from two feet off the ground, gazing at humans’ ankles and knees?
The answers to these questions are surprising and delightful, as cognitive scientist Alexandra Horowitz explains how dogs perceive their daily world, along with that other quirky animal, the human.
In crisp, clear prose she draws on her research in the field of dog cognition to answer questions that other dog books haven’t even asked, such as: What is a dog’s sense of time? Does she miss me? Know when he’s been bad? This book is as close as you can get to knowing what a dog is thinking without being a dog yourself.”
