Reading to Dogs

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (10-29-2016) #496: Raymond Coppinger discusses his book WHAT IS A DOG? which analyzes the historical adaptation of free-roaming, un-owned dogs and what they reveal about the dogs who live with us; Victoria Wells — the manager of Behavioral Training for the ASPCA — talks about the New York Times article describing their program in which volunteers read to dogs that were otherwise unable to interact with people because of their prior abuse and neglect; Carl Safina discusses his book  BEYOND WORDS: WHAT ANIMALS THINK AND FEEL, challenging previous ideas about the boundaries between people and nonhuman animals, which personalities and societies and science now shows experience a range of emotions from joy, grief, and jealousy, to anger and love.
