The Social Lives of Dogs: The Grace of Canine Company

'“A continuation of the author’s 1993 bestseller, The Hidden Life of Dogs, by an anthropologist who leaps over the parochial limits to the proper study of mankind.” —The New York Times   “Masterly at description, equipped with a deep regard for the essential dogness of dogs and attuned to the tiny things that capture who they are . . . This is a quieter, gentler Thomas, less of a dispassionate observer and more of an engaged participant in her dogs’ lives, and the result is a fuller, more affecting read.” —Caroline Knapp, author of Pack of Two   “Anyone who cares about animals will relish joining Thomas in that rich and happy place.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review   “A lovingly detailed chronicle of canines.” —The Denver Post   “She makes the naysayers . . . seem a vanishing breed. . . . The world opens up before her with no end to interspecies communication, which is her gift.” —Los Angeles Times   “It is reassuring to have our observations articulated by one who inhabits the minds of animals as convincingly as does Elizabeth Marshall Thomas.” —Boston Herald   “[Thomas] deserves the ultimate compliment for a dog person. She pays attention to dogs the way they pay attention to us. She pays attention.” —Detroit Free Press   “With the eye of an anthropologist and the heart of a true dog lover, Thomas again dishes up illuminating information about the power of canine companionship.” —Daily News (New York)   “Rich relationships . . . portrayed with acuity and gusto.” —Elle   “Nobody inhabits the minds of domestic animals the way Elizabeth Marshall Thomas does.” —Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of Dogs Never Lie about Love   “Entertaining and informative.” —Library Journal   “A fascinating collection of compelling, insightful, inspiring and heartfelt stories about our brilliant, highly emotional, unconditional, and close friends.” —Marc Bekoff, University of Colorado, Boulder   “Works both as a semianthropological study and a moving biography of her pet family. . . . Dog lovers will enjoy and empathize with Thomas’ complete devotion to her pets.” —Booklist'
