"Que el perro sea o no el mejor amigo del hombre, según un antiguo dicho, posiblemente está todavía por saber. Lo que sí se sabe con certeza es que las relaciones de los perros con los hombres han inspirado una vasta literatura. En esta selección de relatos breves, que se abre con el magnífico prólogo de Gerald Durrell, nos encontraremos con escritores de la talla de G. K. Chesterton, Hugh Walpole, Virginia Woolf, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, etc., que intentaron ver cuál era realmente el nexo entre seres tan distintos. Cada cual nos ofrece una respuesta diferente. Desde la épica apasionada de London hasta la amarga fábula de Walpole, pasando por el humor fresco y vital de Jerome K. Jerome, o el lirismo arrebatador con que Virginia Woolf nos cuenta el final de Flush, el perro de Robert Browning y Elisabeth Barrett Browning. Gerald Durrell, especialista máximo en historias de animales, reflexiona en su prólogo acerca de esa relación hombre-perro que ha atravesado los siglos". (Descripción editorial).
