"The Dog Who Couldn't Stop Loving"

By Jeffrey Masson

A story about a yellow Lab and love.A download from the library to my e-reader.
This book is not the warm fuzzes the title makes it sound like, it is more about research on the wolf in to dog. Very little about the man and his dog.

I didn't like the book, because I was not in to the research.
