Family Kindle Book of The Day
“Lively and fascinating… The reader comes away cheered, better informed, and with a new and deeper appreciation for our amazing canine companions and their enormous capacity for love.”—Cat Warren, New York Times best-selling author of What the Dog Knows
Does your dog love you?
Every dog lover knows the feeling. The nuzzle of a dog’s nose, the warmth of them lying at our feet, even their whining when they want to get up on the bed. It really seems like our dogs love us, too. But for years, scientists have resisted that conclusion, warning against anthropomorphizing our pets. Enter Clive Wynne, a pioneering canine behaviorist whose research is helping to usher in a new era: one in which love, not intelligence or submissiveness, is at the heart of the human-canine relationship. Drawing on cutting‑edge studies from his lab and others around the world, Wynne shows that affection is the very essence of dogs, from their faces and tails to their brains, hormones, even DNA. This scientific revolution is revealing more about dogs’ unique origins, behavior, needs, and hidden depths than we ever imagined possible.
A humane, illuminating book, Dog Is Love is essential reading for anyone who has ever loved a dog—and experienced the wonder of being loved back.
Today’s Family Kindle Deal is sponsored by this week’s Kids Book of The Week:
A protective boyfriend. A girlfriend who wants to fit in. Can love give them the strength to face the ugly secrets they’re hiding?
She’s the most precious person in my life. I’d do anything for Bianca.
Except introduce her to my family.
I know she wants to meet them, but I can’t predict what my dad might do.
How can I tell her that?
Our ugly family secret stays locked within our house, just the way Mum wants it to be.
I won’t expose Bianca to it.
But she’s starting to pull away from me.
I can feel the wedge growing between us, and I don’t know how to stop it.
Maybe she’s hiding something from me too. The light in her eyes doesn’t shine so bright these days.
I wish I could figure out what is eating at her.
Life is so much easier when I can just paste on a smile and pretend that everything’s sweet.
But maybe I can’t this time.
Maybe I have to let her into the dark side of my world… or I could lose her forever.
