In the Company of Newfies is a visionary book filled with
stunning insights that teach us much about the profound bond between human
and dog, about the almost limitless possibilities in our relations.
Refusing to limit herself to standard animal-behavior explanations (sex
and food, fight or flight), Lerman examines the actions of her dogs from a
less deterministic point of view, always seeking to understand and to
communicate with them. Under her gaze, actions that seemed puzzling,
eccentric, or delinquent suddenly become understandable as intentional and
meaningful attempts to behave and to bond. Lermanís observations and
meditations startle us, revealing dog thinking and behavior in new and
wonderful ways. Reading her book, it is hard to deny her belief that dogs
want to commune with people, want to leave their feral selves and
join our human community.
This is a book for anyone who has ever loved a dog,
for anyone who has ever lost a dog, for
anyone who has ever felt the electric shock that comes with recognizing the
humanity of dogs, for anyone who has appreciated just what a dog voluntarily
gives up in crossing the wilderness to join us in our human condition.
AN EMOTIONAL JOURNEY INTO
YOUR DOGíS SOUL
Anyone who has ever had a
dog knows that there is no other animal as loyal, as affectionate,
as playful, as trusting, or at times, as peculiarly human, as a dog.
Far beyond a mere study of animal behavior,
Company of Newfies reveals to us the intimate bond that comes from living closely with
dogs and how they inescapably become a part of our very beings.
Keenly observant and deeply intuitive, Rhoda Lerman
here recounts a year in the life of one litter and in the lives of the rest
of the dog family. It is a year of many victories and some losses, and it
is through both that you will experience the full sweep of the emotions dogs
and humans share. By bookís end, you will have laughed at the antics of the
irrepressible Toby; admired the quiet strength and intelligence of the
mother, Molly; delighted in the growing maturity of the pups Rosie and
Silky; cheered as Ishtar takes her first championship ribbon; and wept for
the death of noble Ben. You will have learned a great deal about dogs. You
will have learned even more about love. Perhaps only a novelist of Rhoda
Lermanís skill and sensitivity could have ranged so freely to tell us so
After you read this book, your relationship with your
dog will never be the same. This classic book has changed the minds and
opened the hearts of dog lovers everywhere. Open your mind and know your dog as youíve never known him before. This
heartwarming and enduring story will take you on a journey into the soul of
your own dog. Take the journey. Take it with someone you love, either dog
or human, and bring a box of tissues.
