The Dog Days of Summer

Guest Article by:

Article Type: 

What is it about canines that fascinates humans? Why are dogs known as man’s best friend? This theme has been explored in books from children’s literature about the bond between a child and a puppy to nonfiction covering the neuroscience of dogs. Though humanity may never come up with one single answer, this is central to any explanation: dogs are amazing beings. As we mark the “dog days of summer,” we invite you to check out some of our favorites featuring these wonderful animals.
