what's a dog for? by john homansThis question, and many more, are brought out of the doghouse in John Homans’s informative new dog book as he discusses domestic life with his lab mix, Stella — as well as the overall explosion in dog ownership in America (from 53 million in 1996 to 77 million in 2010).
