wild life

Dogs link us to wild landscapes - Notes from the Pack.

Collectively, dogs remind us all of what it means to be more wild   
— an effect that, it turns out, is not just psychological.   

Dogs link us to wild landscapes in at least ten ways,   
each of which is of consequence for the simple reason   
that there are now so damned many dogs, perhaps half a billion,   
perhaps more (WHO-WSPA 1990), sniffing through   
civilization’s rank corridors and then beyond.
