Gretchen recommends "The Year of the Puppy: How Dogs Become Themselves"

Are you thinking of bringing a new pup into your home?  Renowned dog researcher Alexandra Horowitz explores the first year of a dog’s life in comparison to that of an infant child.  Puppies grow by leaps and bounds quite literally compared to a human baby in their first 12 months.  Horowitz visits a litter from birth, and adopts one of the puppies with her family to continue her observations of all the wonderful and sometimes inscrutable antics of their new dog.  The new pup named Quiddity or Quid reminds her, “It is less who I want our puppy to be than who I want to be with our puppy .”  Educational, inspiring, and humbling for all pet parents.
