Client Story: Layout for "Dawn of the Dog"

Now on Amazon! Dawn of the Dog, written by Janice Koler-Matznick and designed by Karen Adair challenges that “Man’s Best Friend” may not be what most people have historically believed.

The common origin of the dog story says the dog was a gray wolf that somehow turned into the dog after it associated with humans. Dawn of the Dog reveals this idea is merely an assumption based on nothing other than wolves and dogs are similar. Author Janice Koler-Matznick is a biologist specializing in behavior and the breeder of our beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback, Orion. Jan proposes that the dog is a natural species that attached itself to man. She builds the case that the dog is a unique relative of the gray wolf, and that because of false assumptions we have misinterpreted our Best Friend's behavior.

Quite a shift of perspective. Get it here.
