There’s nothing quite like the incredible relationship between a human and a dog – from the first moment we lay eyes on an adorable little puppy to the heartbreaking time when we have to let our canine companion go because their lives, alas, are much shorter than ours – we share innumerable moments of pure joy with our furry friends who have rightly been called a human’s best friend. It’s been famously said that dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss; in effect, they make our lives whole.

The Book of Dogs is a tribute to the wonderful dogs we have known, with over thirty original pieces celebrating our relationship with the dogs in our lives. It is a testament to how deeply dogs touch us, to the special bond we have with them and the special place they hold in our hearts and our lives. With contributions from some of the leading writers from India who are also dog lovers – Anita Nair, Anuja Chauhan, Ashwin Sanghi, Devdutt Pattanaik, Gulzar, Rajdeep Sardesai, Ruskin Bond, Shobhaa De, Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi, Sarnath Banerjee, Gillian Wright, Jerry Pinto, and Tishani Doshi to name only a few – this is a must-read for everyone who loves dogs, the perfect gift for a dog-lover friend, and a handsome, beautifully produced keepsake for any animal lover.

The Book of Dogs is a project of love to which the editor and each author has contributed for free; proceeds from sales will go to animal charities.
