With the help of Kestra (above) and Aktis, Gary Borjesson explores what it means to be friends—real friends—with a dog, and how that relationship can illuminate and inform the other friendships in our lives.
“We can learn much about friendship by examining our relationships with dogs, partly because of what we have in common with them, partly because of what we do not. Our differences put friendship and its terms in striking relief. The resulting perspective is especially valuable given how easy it is for dogs, friendship, and other familiar aspects of our experience to escape our notice.” — from the Preface
“Willing Dogs & Reluctant Masters” will delight dog owners as they recognize themselves and their dogs in Gary Borjesson’s account of human-canine relations. It will encourage all readers to wonder anew about how friendships enrich our lives.
