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?

Having experienced a profound bond with his own dog, Benjy—a failed guide dog for the blind who possesses an abundance of uninhibited love—author Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson knows dogs’ reciprocal affection is not unique, but exemplifies a love affair unequaled in the animal world. In The Dog Who Couldn’t Stop Loving, Masson considers the far-reaching consequences of the co-evolution of dogs and humans with wisdom, insight, and a brilliant analysis of recent scientific findings, delivering a compelling, provocative book that will change the way we think about love and our canine companions.
