TRUNKS ART: "Must Love Dogs: A Tragedy of Sorts."

Nampa, Idaho  - June 26, 2023 - I believe most people would agree that our nation is in the midst of a loneliness crisis. I've come to the realization that many of our choices, which may seem like solutions to this soul-crushing epidemic, are actually symptoms of it. 💖

Must Love Dogs: A Tragedy of Sorts, is on Amazon Books now.

Back Cover:

Even if you've been going through life half asleep for the last ten years, I'm still confident that you've noticed an undeniable surge in the number of people with dogs. Have you ever wondered why that is?

After conducting over ten years of field research for this book, amassing 30,000 bike-miles and 10,000 foot-miles while doing so and interviewing hundreds of dog owners who trusted me with their personal stories, I developed a theory that attempts to answer the question, "How did America become so obsessed with dogs?"

The sometimes funny, sometimes frightening, and always entertaining observational and experiential stories in the first two parts of the book stem from actual events and support the explanations behind a theory that takes into account the external and internal pressures that make it remarkably easy for dog owners to exclaim, "Must Love Dogs!" 

Trunks Art moved from Raleigh, North Carolina to Nampa, Idaho in 2022 and has made this city his home and art inspiration.

Hey Chuck,
I enjoyed your post and agree that especially since the pandemic, people are more lonely and are having issues reconnecting to the world pre-pandemic. Being isolated was forced upon us and for the ones who are having trouble coming out of it, finding other means of comfort has been a symptom.

Keep up the good work!
