We used to call it a mutt. Now, it may as well be master. Dogs are quickly finding a new place in society, where owners are treating them just like they would their own children. In One Nation Under Dog, Michael Schaffer uses his own acquisition of a Saint Bernard to express this shift in canine comfort. From the premium, organic food we feed them to the specialists we hire to treat their emotional distress, Schaffer examines how these changes reflect adjustments in other areas of society. It’s pooch 2.0, where even dogs have social networks to trade photos and plan events.
