About this deal

It goes beyond the damp noses and wagging tails and gets to the heart of what makes dogs our true lifelong companions. She has a PhD in Environmental History and Aesthetics and is the founding editor of The Willowherb Review. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. My favourite essay was Jessica Pan's The Master List as I think she endeared herself to me the moment she spoke about wrestling with a slobbering rottweiler as well as showing her terrified husband how she could put her head in his mouth and 'he could kill me but he chooses not to'.

There were some I really didn't get along with - Ned Beauman's being the worst as he seems to think because he's a tall man with a little dog in a park people would presume he's a paedophile and it was such an odd take that he was so consistent with in his story, it was really off-putting. For this collection, the central topic of our pooch pals could not have been more apt for me given that I have recently been initiated into the cult of canine companionship for the very first time!

I looked forward to this new routine and it encouraged me to read more regularly and consistently - I would recommend this book be read this way, in little chunks.

Reading this made my simultaneously miss my childhood dogs and yearn for a new furry friend who will enrich my life. All in all it was alright, I just wish there was some more elevated prose essays, even just to change the pace up, instead of very simple, article like writing with little individuality or self expression on the author's part.For me a real highlight was Child-Friendly by Ned Beauman, in which Beauman spends the entirety of the essay trying to convince the reader that he is not a paedophile, despite his adorable little dog's tendency to attract pre-teen girls.
