Things My Dog Has Taught Me
About being a better human - perfect for all who love dogs, by Jonathan Wittenberg
By Jonathan Wittenberg
A dog's guide to life - how to be a kinder, compassionate, more mindful and wiser human.
'A book about faithfulness and constancy in a world where both seem lost - highly recommended for dog lovers and would-be dog lovers - gentle and wise' - Justin Webb
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 canine companions, Jonathan shares his inability to resist the big, brown-eyed look which says, 'I'll melt your heart if you even think of going out without me', and the security he feels on a twenty-mile trek across the bleak Scottish Highlands with not a soul for a friend but his border collie.
A good read if you enjoy watching Paul O'Grady's ITV series For the Love of Dogs, about the work of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
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.
