‘Inside of a Dog’ is a look at the world of dogs from the dog’s point of view. As a dog owner, Horowitz is curious to learn what her dog thinks about and knows. And as a scientist, she is intent on understanding the minds of animals who cannot speak for themselves. In prose, Horowitz introduces the reader to dogs’ perceptual and cognitive abilities and then draws a picture of what it might be like to be a dog. What’s it like to be able to smell not just every bit of open food in the house but also to smell sadness in humans or even the passage of time? How does a tiny dog manage to play successfully with a Great Dane? What is it like to hear the bodily vibrations of insects or the hum of a fluorescent light? In short, what is it like for a dog to experience life from two feet off the ground, amidst the smells of the sidewalk, gazing at our ankles or knees? The book explains these things and much more. ‘Inside of a Dog’ also contains research on dogs’ detection of disease, the secrets of their tails, and their skill at reading our attention that Horowitz puts into useful context.
