Our Dogs, Ourselves with Alexandra Horowitz
In case you couldn't hear that, we were calling to all of the Bainbridge Dog Lovers at a really high pitch to come and join Alexandra Horowitz and Eagle Harbor Book Company at 3:00 PM on Sunday, September 29th. Horowitz will be discussing her newest book, released on September 9th, Our Dogs, Ourselves.
As Horowitz considers the current culture of dogdom, she reveals the odd, surprising, and contradictory ways we live with dogs. We celebrate their individuality but breed them for sameness. Despite our deep emotional relationships with dogs, legally they are property to be bought, sold, abandoned, or euthanized as we wish. Even the way we speak to our dogs is at once perplexing and delightful.
Horowitz is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know and On Looking: A Walker's Guide to the Art of Observation. She teaches at Barnard College, where she runs the Dog Cognition Lab. She lives with her family and two large, highly sniffy dogs in New York City.
