"The world is a very narrow bridge. Cross it with a dog."

"When in doubt, walk your dog" is the first of many valuable maxims in Dog Lessons, a heartfelt reflection on what dogs can teach us when we open ourselves to listen and learn. After sixty-plus years living and working with dogs, Hersch Wilson shares self-deprecating stories and lighthearted musings on a life filled with fur-covered furniture, unexplained messes, and destroyed property. The resulting compendium of dog wisdom -- from universal values like loyalty and curiosity to practical lessons on napping, playing, and avoiding a serious fight -- is not only poignant but eminently good advice.
