Roger A. Caras Quotes (Author of A Cat is Watching)
Doggies Dress Up for 25th Annual Halloween Dog Parade
A Celebration of Dogs
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.
Thank you! The authoritative and usually methodical Roger Caras has filled this latest book with sundry ways in which dogs are wonderfully present in human life, and speculations thereon: why, for example, have humans been breeding dogs for upwards of 10, years? The result lacks cohesion or conclusiveness --but not interest. The first half is devoted to the development of breeds and the logic or lack of logic that determines which Group each breed belongs to. By concentrating on representative breeds, Caras delineates the diversity of the dog world: from the Pekingese lap dogs of the Chinese nobility, the Vikings' Norwegian elkhound, and the Muslims' saluki and greyhound, to the late-come Doberman pinscher, a genetically-engineered guard dog.
Roger Andrew Caras May 24, — February 18, was an American wildlife photographer, writer, wildlife preservationist and television personality.
