This book is a personal recollection and account of letters written and meetings held between a young man and a remarkable individual who identified himself as a "Dogman". It has been described as both philosophical and prophetic in its nature. The book seeks to reveal the truth about the unique relationship between man and dog. The facts in this book are said to be handed down by those known as the "Ancients". As the reader will discover, there is much more to this book than the title suggests. It offers the opportunity for spiritual growth, a deeper understanding of human nature and insight into communication with the dog.
"Yes. I Believe What the Dog Says." draws on its predecessor "My Years with a Dogman". This book is a collection of provocative, inspirational, and at times humorous quotes taken from letters and conversations between Mike “the Dogman” McConnery and his German mentor – Guenther. Before arriving in Canada after WWII, Guenther had been responsible for the breeding, keeping and training of elite war dogs and was the only Dogman granted access to Hitler's personal dogs and to Hitler himself.During their time together Guenther shared with Mike ancient wisdom about life, man, and the German Sherpherd's Dog, which continues to resonate powerfully today.Guenther believed that the dog not only mirrors the soul of his handler but is an excellent judge of the character of others. In his words:I have learned to trust my dogs' opinion of my fellow man more than my own opinion. They look past the trappings of life deep into the inner being. They see those things which a smile or pretty face might hide. They see those things which tattered clothes may conceal. Yes. I believe what the dog says.This quote was the inspiration for this book.

Dog Man: An Uncommon Life on a Faraway Mountain is a stunning portrait of the Japanese rebel who single-handedly rescued the 4,000-year-old Akita dog breed. At the end of World War II, there were only 16 Akita dogs left in Japan. Morie Sawataishi became obsessed with preventing the extinction of the 4,000-year-old Japanese dog breed. He defied convention, broke the law, gave up a prestigious job, and chose instead to take his urbanite wife to Japan's forbidding snow country to start a family, and devote himself entirely to saving the Akita. Martha Sherrill blends archival research, on-site reportage, and her talent for narrative to reveal Sawataishi's world, providing a profound look at what it takes to be an individual in a culture where rebels are rare, while expertly portraying a side of Japan that is rarely seen by outsiders.
One-Man Dog isn’t really the story of a man and a dog. There’s a pup in it. And several men in it aged ten or thereabouts. But it is mostly an affectionate recapturing of the perilous, yet infinitely delightful world of childhood, done so vividly, with such warmth, one can only conclude that at some time or other Ahmad Kamal must have been a small boy himself. Let the reader be warned, however, that One Man Dog is not a memoir in which the keen edges of reality have been buffed smooth by time. Everything is sharply intact: all the desperate adventures, the disastrous fights, the running skirmishes with parental authority, the frightening brushes with the law, the feverish forays into the world of finance and big business, the ecstatic yearnings that are part of growing up — all are here, in a story to make you look excitedly back into the past and catch your breath at the miracle of your own survival.

Contacts and Exchanges in the Eurasian Pandemonium
Author: David Gordon White
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
A richly illustrated tapestry of interwoven studies spanning some six thousand years of history, Dæmons Are Forever is at once a record of archaic contacts and transactions between humans and protean spirit beings—dæmons—and an account of exchanges, among human populations, of the science of spirit beings: dæmonology. Since the time of the Indo-European migrations, and especially following the opening of the Silk Road, a common dæmonological vernacular has been shared among populations ranging from East and South Asia to Northern Europe. In this virtuoso work of historical sleuthing, David Gordon White recovers the trajectories of both the “inner demons” cohabiting the bodies of their human hosts and the “outer dæmons” that those same humans recognized each time they encountered them in their enchanted haunts: sylvan pools, sites of geothermal eruptions, and dark forest groves. Along the way, he invites his readers to reconsider the potential and promise of the historical method in religious studies, suggesting that a “connected histories” approach to Eurasian dæmonology may serve as a model for restoring history to its proper place at the heart of the discipline of the history of religions.

"An impressive and important cross-cultural study that has vast implications for history, religion, anthropology, folklore, and other fields. . . . Remarkably wide-ranging and extremely well-documented, it covers (among much else) the following: medieval Christian legends such as the 14th-century Ethiopian Gadla Hawaryat (Contendings of the Apostles) that had their roots in Parthian Gnosticism and Manichaeism; dog-stars (especially Sirius), dog-days, and canine psychopomps in the ancient and Hellenistic world; the cynocephalic hordes of the ancient geographers; the legend of Prester John; Visvamitra and the Svapacas ("Dog-Cookers"); the Dog Rong ("warlike barbarians") during the Xia, Shang, and Zhou periods; the nochoy ghajar (Mongolian for "Dog Country") of the Khitans; the Panju myth of the Southern Man and Yao "barbarians" from chapter 116 of the History of the Latter Han and variants in a series of later texts; and the importance of dogs in ancient Chinese burial rites. . . . Extremely well-researched and highly significant."—Victor H. Mair, Asian Folklore Studies
