Canine Courage
by Tiffin Shewmake
Paperback: 200 pages. Publisher: Pagefree Publishing; (October 1, 2002)
More than a compilation of stories from ancient times to today, this book also examines why the brave and faithful dogs reacted as they did and what motivates canine heroism. It begins with an explanation of the difference between true "heroism" and the ingrained, innate behavior of many of the more popular breeds who even untrained instinctively know how to react in dangerous circumstances or even recognize impending danger. It explains how the history and personality traits of a breed play a part in these heroic acts and which breeds are the most heroic (and the least) and why. The book examines the importance of dog emotions and their sensitivity to our emotions. It includes accounts of the many ways dogs behave heroically, from getting help for a person who's sick or injured by convincing someone to follow them. It tells about dogs who risked their own lives to defend owners who were being attacked or by actually rescuing people who were drowning or trapped in a fire. Canine Courage discusses conventional explanations for such stories and also considers the possibility of ESP. more information:
