Dogs are pretty much the best living beings on the planet. For more proof, look no further than The Underdogs: Children, Dogs, and the Power of Unconditional Love, Melissa Fay Greene’s latest elegantly rendered and undeniably moving effort. The book centers on 4 Paws for Ability, an Ohio-based nonprofit service-dog academy that provides disabled children with companion animals. Greene discusses The Underdogs at Joseph-Beth.
