A groundbreaking and inspiring exploration of the unique relationship between dogs and humans, from the best-selling author of Dogs Never Lie About Love.

Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson has long been interested in the relationships between humans and animals, and he's always been aware that there was something very special in our bond with dogs. No other animals love us in quite the same way as dogs love us. And it is mutual. Is it possible that we developed our capacity for love, sympathy, empathy, and compassion because of our long association with dogs?

In The Dog Who Couldn't Stop Loving, Masson considers the far-reaching consequences of the coevolution of dogs and humans, drawing upon recent scientific research. Over the past forty thousand years a collective domestication has occurred that brings us to where we are today - humans have formed intense bonds with dogs, and the adoration is almost always reciprocal. Masson himself has experienced a profound bond with his new dog, Benjy, a failed guide dog for the blind, who possesses an abundance of uninhibited love. Masson knows that the love he feels for Benjy - the same feeling Benjy has for all the people and animals around him - is not unique, but exemplifies a love affair unmatched in the animal world.

With wisdom, insight, and a brilliant analysis of recent scientific findings, bestselling author Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson delivers a provocative and compelling book that will change the way we think about love and our canine companions.

Listener Opinions

    " A little repetitive but a great read for any dog lover with interesting scientific and cultural information on the human/dog relationship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 5/26/2012

    " Great book about dogs and the bond between dogs and people. The idea that dogs and humans co-evolved and that is why the relationship is so strong along with personal anecdotes about the authors dog makes for a very readable book. But, he seemed to be repeating himself at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/26/2012

    " Lots of information on the evolution of the dog from the wolf. "

    " Interest in topic; read other book by author "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Frederic | 8/4/2011

    " From the title alone I should have realised that this book is simply a collection of anecdotes about the cute,sweet and affectionate behaviour of the author's dog and some speculation about the origins and benefits of dog/human interaction...which is nice,but...that's about it... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil Fragasso | 7/29/2011

    " A fascinating look at the co-evolution of dogs and humans. Masson raises the possibility that humans wouldn't be quite so human had we not had dogs in our lives. You will never look at your dog the same way after reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 7/6/2011

    " I thought this would be a story about happy dogs. it more about the psychology of dogs. It was still good just not what I expected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerry | 1/26/2011

    " Story about one particular dog and how it gets along with people. Some interesting ideas about co-evolution of man and dogs. But I'm not sure that theory is correct. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JoAnn | 10/27/2010

    " This is an excellent book on human relationships with dogs. It is well written and appealing.

    I recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading about dogs. "
