I grew up talking to my cats, so I didn't need to read Ms. George's "How to Talk to your Cat."

But this one was an eye opener. She knows dogs and explains them very well.

What an odd book. On one hand, I think the idea is great and there are several good ideas within. On the other hand, there are many things that the author suggests that I would never do, such as sniff right in my dog's face. huh? My dogs don't like us getting near their faces at all, much less to sniff at them. Also, trying to make your dog look you in the eye is an entirely pointless venture. I've also heard conflicting reports on whether "hugging" your dog is a good idea or not.
