“The awh- and awe-inspiring stories and photographs in Unlikely Friendships: Dogs feature my favorite combinations: canines with all critters furred, feathered, and scaled, dogs with people, and, of course—dogs with dogs. I was amused, moved—and at times astonished. I shouldn’t have been: Dogs rule and these unlikely friendships delight.”
