Downward Sizing Dog
A Reformed Big Dog Snob Defends the Small Dog Life
Just try typing “are small dogs smart…” into its search bar, and Google jumps in prematurely, finishing your sentence for you with suggestions like: “dumb?” “yappy?” “annoying?”
No, Google, they’re not.
Are we letting stereotypes dictate the dogs we choose? Is our habit of bringing home the most popular big dogs really what’s best for us…and for them?
Or, do small dogs deserve more respect?
If you’ve ever wondered why people love their small dogs like their kids or wished you had a good comeback for the opinionated big dog snob next door when he insults your ten pound Pekingese, you’ve picked up the right book.
In this big defense of small dogs, Downward Sizing Dog, dismantles our big dog egos and disproves small dog stereotypes.
With its investigation into every aspect of small dog life, Downward Sizing Dog weaves real-life stories with new research, celebrating these canine beings who deserve a place in our families and on our favorite furniture.
Great for all dog owners!
Helped reinforce my love for small dogs. Combination of research, humor and what we as humans can gain from having dogs in our lives.
