As Edward Albee puts it in this timeless collection of pieces about dogs, there are "those of us who feel incomplete withoutt the company of a dog or two." Those same people will feel incomplete without this book, now in paperback. Along with portraits of dogs are ruminations by such dog-devoted authors as Anne Beattie, Nancy Friday, and Jane Smiley. Daniel Pinkwater describes the joys of strolling with his ever-willing-to-walk dog and Danny Shanahan explains "how to read your dog," complete with sketches. These, together with the work of forty artists, including William Wegman's photographs of famous Fay and Jamie Wyeth's dog paintings, give voice and image to the powerful, undiluted emotions that human beings experience when dogs are among them.
