Is it time to talk about the proliferation of dog ownership yet? "Must Love Dogs: A Tragedy of Sorts" by TRUNKS ART is on Amazon now."

Nampa, Idaho  - March 4, 2024 - An excerpt from Chapter 8:

"As I predicted, we did much more walking than running because Harley needed to smell most everything, pee on stuff, and empty his colon within three minutes after leaving the house. I also made the mental error of watching her pick up the steaming pile with a green poop bag she dispensed from a roll inside her fanny pack, putting an immediate kibosh on my fantasy of exchanging backrubs after our workout..." 💖

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.
