dc.description.abstractThe title-story is sustained from 5 to 22. Twenty shorter stories follow. The title-story does a creditable job of explaining the world as a dog would see it, particularly in describing how human beings came to be and what their purpose is. What the great god Canus does sounds at several points very much like what God does in Genesis. The Source (24) is then a kind of preface to the further stories. To Live a Life of Ease (29) describes the dog who believed those who told him to go to the city to find real life; he gave up his free life in the woods, and it was a mistake. The Success (37) tells how Bobo learned to pee higher on trees than the higher-ups, and so became a dog of high standing. The Usurer (47) tells of a dog who cornered the market on bones; smart dogs learned that they did not need to gnaw on bones, especially if it got them into terrible debt. We all need to learn to distinguish what we want from what we need. The urge to rhyme is very strong in all of the quatrains here. I object to repeated sentence-subjects.en_US
