by Stanley Coren. New York: Free Press, 2010.

Coren, author of Why Does my Dog Act That Way, shares the often amusing and always instructive stories of life with Flint, his oversized Cairn terrier. For the author, the heroic and intelligent Flint, capable of rescuing kittens and apparently able to read and count, was key to unlocking a new way of looking at canine behavior and human relationships with dogs. Coren discusses canine behavior (particularly barking) and how to train and socialize man’s best friend. More than just an entertaining story about doggie escapades, this book offers valuable advice on loving and living with our canine pals, even when they chew and bark when you least want them to.
