Dogs Never Lie About Love : Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs

Paperback - 274 Pages
Published - 1998
By Jeffrey Masson

Dogs fill our hearts with love and our minds with wonder, but their emotional
lives have remained unexplored since Darwin 125 years ago.
Now in Dogs Never Lie About Love, controversial psychoanalyst Jeffrey Masson
brilliantly navigates the rich inner landscape of "our best friends."

As he guides readers through the surprising depth of canine emotional
complexity, Jeffrey Masson draws from myth and literature, from scientific
studies, and from the stories and observations of dog trainers and dog lovers
around the world. But the stars of the book are the author's own three dogs
whose delightful and mysterious behavior provides the way to exploring a wide
range of subjects--from emotions like gratitude, compassion, loneliness, and
disappointment to speculating what dogs dream of and how their powerful
sense of smell shapes their perception of reality. As he sweeps aside old
prejudices on animal behavior, Masson reaches into a rich universe of dog
feeling to its essential core, their "master emotion": love.

Like the dogs he loves, Masson's writing will capture the reader with its playful,
mysterious, and serious sides. Its surprising insights provide a new dimension
of understanding for dog owners everywhere.
