Sobre este título:


Stephen Huneck's labrador, Sally, makes her inimitable publishing debut in these woodcut prints that illustrate the enduring concerns, pleasures, and existential dilemmas of dogs--and of their human relations. Sally is sensitive, loyal, and loving--but also a realist. Faced with the deep moral quandaries of a dog's life--shall I sleep on the sofa, snag a morsel from the kitchen counter, or stick my nose into other people's business?--she favors immediate gratification. After all, a dog's virtue can only endure as long as its owner doesn't bark too loudly or withhold the affectionate scratch behind the ears. Sally's human may be feted for his charming illustrations, but Sally--sleeping with her eye half open--is an immortal canine everydog, whose pictures make a gift to warm every dog-lover's heart. Stephen Huneck is an internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor, whose work often incorporates animals. His work has been widely exhibited and is included in important museum collections, including the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of American Folk Art. As he explains in his Introduction, Huneck began the series of woodcuts after suffering a near-death experience in which the very desire to make the prints, as well as the life-affirming messages they convey, figured profoundly in his recovery. He lives in Woodstock, Vermont.

Críticas: This hilarious adventure into the mind of an everyday dog will delight dog lovers. Illustrated with colorful woodblock prints of a black Labrador retriever (based on artist Stephen Huneck's own dog, Sally), this book captures the true spirit of doghood. Each portrait reflects another important doggy pursuit: food, socks, hogging the bed... Of great importance in the dog's day are petting and loving; dog ecstasy is perceived as a good belly rub. The latter half of the book, entitled "The Two Hemispheres of the Brain," portrays the amusing clash of emotions dogs are surely faced with each day. A dog brain has two hemispheres--the good dog portion and the bad dog portion. Dogs frequently fight the bad dog side: good dog wants to drink water from his bowl, bad dog wants to drink water from the toilet bowl--unfortunately, bad dog often wins. My Dog's Brain is a delightful book of conjecture about the workings of a dog's mind.
