5 dog books that we recommend from Brott
Loyalty Pact , Gonzalo Giner
Zoe's life turns upside down when she crosses paths with Champion , an unbred dog who helps her overcome the problems that threaten her. Together with him, she embarks on a journey in search of her destiny: devotion to animals and freedom, whose path her father has shown her. Full of courage, Zoe will not only face the tests that her time imposes on her, but she will have to fight against herself when love finds her. A fast-paced novel that covers the most dramatic period of the last century: the Civil War and the rise of Nazism, and that narrates, for the first time, the role of dogs in armed conflicts . Spies, secret experiments to find a mythological war dog, betrayals, love... run through these pages that illustrate, through their protagonist, the unbreakable and ancestral pact of loyalty between dog and man.

The best stories about dogs , VVAA
“ I have known dogs that are evil and kind, stupid and smart, but I couldn't live without them. The Greeks said that a house is not a home if it does not have a swallow nesting under the eaves, and in my opinion a house is not a home if it does not have a dog. Gerald Durrell
"Perhaps dogs, whose devotion exceeds that of most lovers, are able to pick up the telepathic vibrations of their beloved owners who constantly think and worry about them." Jill Cooper
Whether or not the dog is man's best friend , according to an old saying, may still be unknown.

Each one offers us a different answer.
In the mind of a dog, Alexandra Horowitz
What do dogs think? How do they relate to the world around them? How do they interact with humans? What do your senses tell you? The author of this book, a cognitive psychologist who has been working with animals for years, enters the mind of a dog and explains to us what it sees, smells, and feels. And the conclusions are in many cases surprising. Essential for dog lovers , but also for anyone interested in science, this fascinating essay explains why a dog feels the uncontrollable impulse to chase a cyclist, how it is able to smell not only food but also the sadness of humans and even the passage of time, how your hearing allows you to hear the vibration of insects flying or the hum of a fluorescent light. In short, how the world looks from the mind of a dog .
