Step right up for Issue 22’s special feature! Ricky Jay, prestidigitator and historian of the arcane, takes us behind the scenes to unveil the secrets of stage dogs from another century.

We also have an essay by master storyteller Peter Mayle, famous for his Provence-infused books. This delightful work is about the English and their passion for dogs. Jeannette Cooperman brings us an article about how the friendship between an autistic boy and a dog is helping the child to cope. Plus the latest on scootering, haute cuisine, travel and more await you in our Spring ’03 issue.

Issue 15: Summer 2001

We are heading into the summer of 2001 in grand style with two special features. One is a review of places to travel with a water-loving dog. As we learn, even Pugs love a day on the beach. We also explore the meaning behind the well-worn phrase “dogs as members of the family.” Through personal insights by authors such as Ann Patchett, Carolyn Heilbrun and Deborah Digges we come away with an expanded sense of the meaning of family. We also talk with Family Studies Professor Gail Melson who helps us to understand just how profound the relationship is and how it has contributed to our very “humanness.” Finally, we start to tackle the more difficult issues that are confronting us today—what are the causes of aggressive behavior? What can good breeding practices do to alleviate this problem? We turn to the expertise of behaviorist Patricia McConnell to begin to sort this out for us. All this, plus dog parks, our summer reading list and tips on organic gardening.



A Family of One’s Own From single life to raising human-canine siblings through empty nesters—dogs have broadened our ideas of family. Essays and articles by Ann Patchett, Deborah Digges, Tom Stienstra, Carolyn Heilbrun with an introduction by Louise Rafkin.

Plus an interview with child psychologist Gail F. Melson, author of Why the Wild Things Are, Animals in the Lives of Children.

Great recipes, wellness/training tips, good reads and smiling dogs.

Welcome to another new issue of The Bark. In this issue we do a special investigation about the record number of recent pet food recalls—many top brands made in the USA have been affected. Can we expect to see more? What to do if your favorite food is recalled? We will continue to track this subject closely, and will be posting recall notices here too.
Geneticist Adam Boyko heads up the fascinating Village Dog project, and tells us about some of its findings. He and other researchers are hoping to discover whether or not the genetic codes from dogs found in villages around the world hold clues to canine evolution and perhaps even to improved health for our own dogs. We look at the difference in dogs’ personalities and why it’s such a complicated topic, and also covers the do’s and don’ts of dealing with an aggressive off-leash dog.

Just in time for gearing up for a summer reading fest, we are delighted to include a new essay by Ann Patchett. In this issue she describes her search for a “store dog” for Parnassus Books, her new Nashville bookstore venture. As a bonus, Ann provides a list of her favorite dog books for children.

We preview of a new book about the challenges of training a would-be service dog to lead the way home, plus an essay on the importance of teaching a dog to pay attention. In the Howl entry, learn the ways a man’s life is informed by three feisty Dachshunds, and in the Endpiece, how a new dog signals a couple’s rejuvenation.

We feature the great 19th –century artist, James Tissot— his own Border Collie was an able muse/model, and his plein air works are summertime marvels. We chat with Jason Gann—the man behind (and inside) one of our favorite TV characters, the man/dog, Wilfred—who shares how he comes up with his species-crossing ideas ….

On the wellness front, we look at hydrotherapy and its rehab benefits; an holistic vet explains why allergies plague our dogs and offers herbal treatment tips; and we have a basketful of recipes to please your dogs at picnic time.

Be sure to check out our second annual “Best Place to Work” competition, which was inspired by my visit last year to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. If you know of a company that has what it takes to earn this year’s top-dog honor, nominate it today. Winners get great prizes and lots of pats and positive reinforcement, too.

Go here for additional picks for summer reading. From the classics to entertaining beach books: you’ll find it all there. But for now, stick around with this issue, which is packed full of good reading for you.
