The Hidden Life of Dogs by Elizabeth Marshall ThomasHave you ever wondered what the world looks like to your dog? Or what it smells and sounds like? Do dogs have crushes or love affairs? Do they dream, and what about? This book is the result of 30 years of living with dogs, wolves and dingoes. The author visits their minds and provides an insight into a species different from our own, but in many respects surprisingly the same.
THE HIDDEN LIFE OF DOGS
Thank you! Just as impressively, Thomas depicts--without anthropomorphizing--a dog world bound by rules like hierarchism but one nonetheless in which each canine is a complex individual. What, then, do dogs want? A four-woof salute to Thomas and a vigorous tail-wag to boot. Drawings--not seen. There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again.

Thomas spent time on Baffin Island observing wolves and her admiration for wolves comes through in her interactions with her dogs. Even her attraction to the husky breed indicates this desire of hers to keep wolves as pets. Early on, we are introduced to the stud-bolt husky Misha. Misha is the celebrated wandering warrior, the Aragorn, if you will, of this story. He nimbly scales the 6-foot wall and disappears. He escapes and wanders for hours and is often gone for days.
