A bet between the gods Hermes and Apollo leads them to grant human consciousness and language to a group of dogs overnighting at a Toronto veterinary clinic. Suddenly capable of more complex thought, the pack is torn between those who resist the new ways of thinking, preferring the old dog ways, and those who embrace the change. The gods watch from above as the dogs venture into their newly unfamiliar world, as they become divided among themselves, as each struggles with new thoughts and feelings.

I loved the whole idea of this book and every character and the presentation! A mindful contemplation of how we relate to and communicate with everything on the planet! I will no longer limit my expectations of birds, cats, dogs etc...just in case they’ve been gifted with language! Wonderful book.
