WHAT THEY ARE SAYING…
“The author, one of the leaders in animal intelligence, has done a marvelous job of telling stories of brave, smart dogs. What a treat! Roll over, Herriot — here comes Puterbaugh!”
ABOUT THE BOOK
If someone says the world has gone to the dogs, that may bode well for the world, as dogs have a pretty good place in it. The dog has been man’s best friend since the Stone Age when he kept his caveman company. Today’s modern dog is often a part of the family. And what family doesn’t think their dog is smart?
See for yourself. In Smart Dogs We Have Known, Dr. Rex Puterbaugh presents tales of smart dogs from across the United States. Fellow veterinarians recollect accounts of dogs who showed their intelligence in the most charming, funny, and surprising ways. From the puppy who could tell time to the pooch who arrived for his vet appointment on his own, from the dog who waited diligently for his master to return from a train trip to tail-wagging babysitters, these lovable stories will even appeal to cat lovers.
Dr. Puterbaugh contacted over 5,000 veterinarians for stories they couldn’t forget and has picked the best of the bunch. Stories donated by national magazines and those that have filled veterinary hospitals for decades are delightfully recounted in this wonderful book.
