This collection of stories and poetry was inspired by a conversation in 10th century Baghdad between the collector and a friend.

Between them they contemplate the declining moral standards of the human race and sign with nostalgia for the good old days, when one could depend upon the loyalty and friendship of one’s fellow beings.

Having promised such a collection to his friend, Ibn al-Marzuban launches with enthusiasm into his task.

Quotations of the famous are followed by anecdotes and stories which in torn give way to an apposite poem – all either decrying people for their evil ways or illustrating the fine qualities displayed by their best friend, the dog, viz, its loyalty, guarding instinct, consistency, intelligence and its capabilities as a hunter.
