Things My Dog Has Taught Me
About being a better human
By Jonathan Wittenberg
A dog's guide to life - how to be a kinder, compassionate, more mindful and wiser human.
'A wonderful read' -- Lorraine Kelly
In this book for dog lovers everywhere, Jonathan Wittenberg says his dogs have taught him, more than anything else, how to appreciate the wonderful world in which we live -- and how to develop better relationships with his friends and families.
In this wonderful, warm account of one man and his dog, Jonathan brings all the big themes of friendship, faithfulness, kindness, cruelty, grief, prayer and spiritual companionship to the fore, and shows
us how we can learn so much from a dog's approach to life.
If you're one of the 8.5 million dog owners in the UK the answer to a better way of living may already be under your roof.
Jonathan Wittenberg was born in Glasgow in 1957 to a family of German Jewish origin. The family moved to London in 1963, where he attended University College School, specialising in classical and modern languages, subsequently reading English at Cambridge. He trained for the rabbinate at Leo Baeck College London, receiving ordination in 1987. He now lives in London with his wife Nicky and, three children, and his faithful canine companion, Mitzpah.
