from the publisher: MERLE’S DOOR: LESSONS FROM A FREETHINKING DOG by ted kerasote

Dog Reads is a blog that features children’s books with key dog characters. Sometimes an adult dog book sneaks in but for the most part Dog Reads aims to help kids, their parents, teachers, and librarians find dog books.

From the publisher:

This national bestseller explores the relationship between humans and dogs. How would dogs live if they were free? Would they stay with their human friends?
Merle and Ted found each other in the Utah desert— Merle was living wild and Ted was looking for a pup to keep him company. As their bond grew, Ted taught Merle how to live around wildlife, and Merle taught Ted about the benefits of letting a dog make his own decisions.
Using the latest in wolf research and exploring issues of animal consciousness and leadership and the origins of the human-dog relationship, Ted Kerasote takes us on the journey he and Merle shared. As much a love story as a story of independence and partnership, Merle’s Door is tender, funny, and ultimately illuminating.
