How would dogs live if they were free? Would they choose to remain near their human friends?nbsp; nbsp; Merle and Ted found each other in the Utah desert—Merle was living wild and Ted was looking for a pup to keep him company. As their bond grew, they taught each other new ways to think and live: Ted taught Merle how to live around wildlife, Merle taught Ted about the complexity of a dog’s intelligence and the benefits of letting a dog make his own decisions. Using the latest in wolf research and exploring issues of animal consciousness, leadership, and the origins of the human-dog relationship, Ted Kerasote takes us on the journey he and Merle shared. As much a love story as a story of independence and partnership,Merle’s Dooris tender, funny, and ultimately illuminating.
