We happily admit that we are smitten with this book. New Yorker illustrator Maira Kalman here applies her whimsical and charming style to one of our favorite subjects—dogs, if you hadn't guessed—and comes up with a portrait of the human-canine bond that is at once lighthearted and profound. Kalman gives voice to the dogs she adores, noting that they are constant reminders that life reveals the best of itself when we live fully in the moment and extend unconditional love. "And it is very true," she writes, "that the most tender, complicated, most generous part of our being blossoms without any effort, when it comes to the love of a dog."
