A pet’s vital early improvement into the canine we come to know is normally missed solely. Canine researcher Alexandra Horowitz aimed to alter that together with her household’s new pup, Quiddity (Quid). On this scientific memoir, she charts Quid’s progress from wee grub to boisterous sprite, from her start to her first birthday.
