Wonderdog: How the Science of Dogs Changed the Science of Life

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (11-21-2022) #806A: Jules Howard (“Wonderdog: How the Science of Dogs Changed the Science of Life”) and Tracie discuss the “the L word” (which isn’t referring to the American cable TV show!), the American phrase “heart dog,” which is not used in Great Britain, and how canine scientists “feel” about love between dogs and humans. Tracie commends Jules for overcoming his own reluctance to embrace the love he feels for his lurcher, Oz.
