The Intelligence of Dogs: A Guide to the Thoughts, Emotions, and Inner Lives of Our Canine Companions
1 journaler for this copy...
I bought this book on sale at Munro's Books, a lovely bookstore in down-town Victoria, BC. I've seen the author on TV and read some articles about him but never the book itself. I'll probably be keeping this in my permanent collection once I finish it.

I plan on taking this book with me when I go on vacation this month and since I will be trying to release books everywhere our travels take us it might be released somewhere.

I probably should have read this book 13 years ago when we first acquired my border collie, Gypsy. As Coren repeatedly mentions border collies are one of the most intelligent dogs. But that very intelligence can drive you crazy because they will amuse themselves (and not always in a way you would like) if you don't provide enough stimulation for them. I really could have used some of his wisdom at the time we were first getting to know each other.
So, I hope the person who gets this book has a young dog so they can make full use of this book. Having said that I found lots of really interesting information about dogs in the book so anyone who is interested in dogs will probably enjoy it.
I also really liked the last chapter which talks about older dogs and how to keep their intelligence at a higher level. The story which ends that chapter is one that will stay with me for a long time.
