Dogs Never Lie About Love

Why Your Dog Will Always Love You More Than Anyone Else



A charming, playful and moving book which will forever change the way you think about dogs.

**OVER ONE MILLION COPIES SOLD**

How well do you know your dog? Did you know that dogs have dreams and fears? That they do see colour, that they smell electric storms, and feel scent as an emotion?

Jeffrey Masson takes us into the world of the dog, a world created by a sense of smell one hundred million times more acute than ours, and reintroduces us to man's best friend - loyal, honest, straightforward, spontaneous and almost unbelievably forgiving.

Drawing on observations of his own three dogs, as well as true stories of dogs' friendship, heroism and loyalty, Masson makes us laugh, cry and think again about our canine companions, who, unlike humans, will never lie about love.

A charming, playful and moving book which will forever change the way you think about dogs.

Praise for Dogs Never Lie About Love

Tremendously reassuring for me, because my dog and I love each other to distraction...Masson dares to write about dogs' emotions, dreams, sadness, fears and loves, and attempts to interpret their feelings without sounding even slightly soppy...This is a fascinating and very moving book

Mail on Sunday

Charming...personal and dynamic

Independent

Gentle, funny and entertaining

Observer

Brilliant

Guardian

A joyous read... Hats of to Jeffrey Masson for his excellent, down-to-earth, understandable and, more importantly, loving study of man's best friend
