Would Dogs Love a World Without Humans?

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (11-21-2021) #754: Featuring Marc Bekoff, and Priscilla Dean. Tracie is fascinated by the premise behind a new book, A Dog’s World: Imagining the Lives of Dogs in a World Without Humans and discusses some of the ideas of who and what dogs would be if people “just disappeared” with Marc Bekoff, who co-authored the book with Jessica Pierce; Priscilla Dean talks about her cat sanctuary, Purradise Ranch, and her films on YouTube Adventures in Purradise, one of which (“Catfight at the O’Kay Corral”) is in this year’s NY Cat Film Festival.
