I picked up a book yesterday and wanted to share it with all of you. It is called "Merle's Door: lessons from a freethinking dog"
The book is about a man, Ted, who find a dog roaming the desert (a ten month old pup) and brings him home and what they teach each other.
A lot of it is about training a dog off leash and letting him/her make their own decisions. That is clearly not possible for a lot of us with Bs. At least, not for me, who lives in a city. But, our dogs are already pretty freethinking and make their own decisions naturally. So, it is very interesting to read about someone watching their dog learn "cause and effect" (ie- don't try and play with a bison, you will get hurt)
A non-fiction book with great narrative and a lot of great facts, it isn't specifically about Basenji's (the dog is a lab/hound of some sort mix) but a great read for any dog lover. I am about halfway through it right now, and if anyone else has read or is reading it, I would love to have a dialogue.
