The New York Times bestselling author of Dog Days ponders the question of whether animals have souls, through stories of his own dogs and the farm animals he lives with

Do animals have souls? Do they affect ours? Do they make moral choices? Jon Katz believes that the soulfulness of animals lies in the things they do and the impact they have on our lives. In Soul of a Dog he explores the idea through stories of his border collie Rose, about whom Jon receives more inquiries and e-mail than any of his other animals. Not one for being petted or cuddled, Rose's integrity and devotion to running the farm are complete. When Jon is sick, Rose is the only one of the dogs who will not leave his side.

Here too are fascinating looks at his other dogs, Izzy, Lenore, and Pearl; his gentle, ethereal donkeys; a murderous barn cat named Mother; assorted chickens and sheep; some obnoxious goats, and a 2,500-pound doughnut-loving steer named Elvis. With the same wisdom, humor, and insight that prompted the Fort Worth Star-Telegram to call Jon Katz “a Thoreau for modern times,” Soul of a Dog illuminates our interspecies relationships with tales of these unforgettable animals.
