One Nation Under Dog
By Michael Schaffer
It's been awhile since my last book review. Mostly because my human has been reading a lot of really boring non-dog stuff lately. OK, and partly because I've been too busy obsessing about things like flying. But whatever - when I saw a dog on the cover of my human's latest read, I asked her to tell me about it.
From what I gather, One Nation Under Dog is about dogs like me. Dogs who have been "elevated" from family pet to member of the family. Dogs who sleep in human beds and have never seen the inside (or outside) of a doghouse. Dogs who enjoy a human-quality standard of living that includes - but isn't limited to - organic meals, birthday celebrations and specialized medical care.
Dogs who Twitter and blog??
Well - duh! So what if I have more toys than the average 3 year old? It's only because my human loves me. And I think that's what One Nation Under Dog is all about: the love humans have for dogs and all the "crazy" ways they show it. My human says it's also about how this love has evolved over time, some reasons why it's grown to such epic proportions, and what it all says about the modern American human. And us very lucky dogs.
