why dogs are better than cats

Some pairings are just meant to be: peanut butter and milk chocolate, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, thymine and adenine, the Lone Ranger and that other guy. So it was only a matter of time before the stars and planets finally aligned to bring New York Times best-selling author Bradley Trevor Grieve (BTG) and award-winning photographer Rachael Hale together for their first collaborative effort: a beautiful, heart-warming and sidesplittingly funny book that explains once and for all Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats.


Now, before cat lovers unsheathe their claws, BTG is quick to stress that he is simply prodog, not anticat. The purpose of this book is not to criticize cats or their owners (unless to do so would be amusing), but merely to champion the many exceptional virtues unique to dogs.


The obvious reason why dogs surpass not just cats but all other species as man’s best friend is that dogs get people – they really do. It’s been this way since dogs and humans first bumped into one another and thought “Hey, this could work!” For more than 15,000 years, dogs and human beings have been drawn together by mutual cooperation, shared values, and a sense of joyous fraternity. Cats, on the other hand, came for the mice and stayed for the salmon kibble.


Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats delivers a hilarious, highly original, and surprisingly moving account of our most faithful of friends, and in doing so holds friendship itself up to the light so that it brightens the heart of every reader.
