This national bestseller
explores the relationship between humans and dogs. How would dogs live if they
were free? Would they stay with their human friends?
Ted Kerasote met and adopted
Merle, a Laborador mix, while he was on a camping trip. Merle had been living
in the wild, and after taking the dog home with him to Wyoming, Kerasote soon
realized that Merle could not adjust to inhabiting exclusively in the human
world. So he put a door in his house to let Merle live both outside and in.
A deeply touching portrait of
a remarkable animal, Merle’s
the issues that all animals and their human companions face as their lives
intertwine, and presents the latest research into animal behavior as well as
the origins and evolution of human-dog interaction. Merle showed Kerasote how
dogs might live were they free; Kerasote suggests how they should be allowed to
live, and the doors that should always remain open to them. Download and start listening now!
