Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog

by Ted Kerasote

Book Reviews

"This exquisitely written book is sure to be controversial, but it raises important questions that every thoughtful dog owner should consider."
—Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D., author of For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend

"It is no exaggeration to say that Merle's Door could be the best book ever written about dogs."
—Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs

"Kerasote has created a whole new work of art. Merle's Door is the best, the most utterly compelling translation of dog to human I have ever seen. A terrific book, a superb book, I can't think of a single other book that conveys the love of a human for a dog so well."
—Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of Dogs Never Lie About Love

"Merle's Door is a window into the mind of a dog. You will experience his loyalty, fears, and joys and his true inner self. Everybody who loves dogs must read this book."
—Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation

"Merle's Door is a love story for grown-ups -- an intense reciprocal relationship between a dog and his man, and how we and our dogs genuinely share feelings and emotions."
—Dr. Bruce Fogle, DVM, author of The Dog's Mind

"Merle's Door is a joyous, sad, gripping, and deeply moving testament to the fulfilling relationship that can grow between human and dog."
—Juliet Clutton-Brock, author of A Natural History of Domesticated Mammals

"To be entertained and educated at the same time is rare in dog books, which makes this one definitely worth reading."
—Stanley Coren, author of How Dogs Think and The Intelligence of Dogs
