Kirja-arvosteluja

DOGWATCHING (1986) is a mildly interesting artifact of the eighties that caught my attention at a library sale, for an attractive cover, but mostly for its author, Desmond Morris, whose book THE NAKED APE was an international bestseller about fifty years ago. Here Morris offered answers to a number of mundane questions like, why do dogs drag their butts; or why do male dogs cock their legs to pee. Or do dogs feel remorse; or why do they bark, howl or pant. He also discusses dew claws and tails and why are they cut off. And heat cycles and mating also get their due. Some of this is interesting, other parts are a yawn. There are also a number of very spare line drawings of dogs by Edward Coleridge.

The entire book can be read in about an hour or two, and is probably best suited for first time dog owners, or older children. So recommended.

Bought when our first baby arrived. We found it interesting casual reading (when we had any time left to read), but not particularly informative or useful.
