Colonel David Hancock (MBE)


"...the weak link in the dog/human relationship is most often the human...it appears that humans are finally on their way to completing domestication and commodification of the dog itself...created and maintained for human possessiveness. Among some social groups, the dog is little more than a biological doll."

From 'How the Dog Became the Wolf' by Mark Derr, (Duckworth Overlook, 2012)
