‘Our Debt to the Dog’ by Bryan Cummins Wins Top Award~!

Our Debt to the Dog: How the Domestic Dog Helped Shape Human Societies, by Bryan Cummins (Carolina Academic Press, 2013; ISBN : 978-1-59460-720-2). Reviewed for LiteraryDogs.com by Don Messerschmidt on September 22 2013


Back on September 22, 2013, we wrote (reviewing this book) — “Every so often a block-buster book, a big book, comes along takes the dog world by storm. I don’t know yet about the size of the storm, but I predict that when Bryan Cummins’ Our Debt to the Dog becomes more widely known, it will be classified as a major contribution to cynology, the science of dogs; and, more specifically, to the rich sub-field of ‘ethnocynology’ –the study of dogs in human culture and society from an anthropological perspective.”

Now, we are pleased to announce that at the recent annual convention of Dogs Writers Association of America, Our Debt to the Dog realized our expectations and was awarded  the prestigious ‘Maxwell Medallion for Excellence‘. Congratulations Bryan~! Medallion_2


About LiteraryDogs

I write and read about dogs, and admire dogs in print; ergo 'LiteraryDogs'. If you have some or all of these same sentiments, let's share our reading/writing knowledge and canine literary insights. My own writings are about Tibetan mastiffs, but I'm flexible and enjoy all dogs.
