Hi

I'm trying to find the author and title of a piece where aliens were observing life on Earth and documenting their findings.

They were clearly at the dog track. They had created a scientific name for humans and another for dogs who they had seen racing, fighting and fighting humans whenever they weren’t seen with a group of men. Their conclusion was that dogs were the authority figures and in charge of the work-unit like humans.

I'd heard and extract from the book (?) about 30 years ago. Any help or info that would point me in the right direction would be appreciated.


Cheers

Mark

That doesn't ring any bells, I'm sorry to say.

But it does sound fun, particular for a short story. Are you sure it's a novel? I would think it would be quite hard to sustain a whole book on such an idea, even if it does sound like fun.

I think one of the Hichhiker Guide books had some aliens that concluded dogs were the dominant form of life on earth, since they were pampered, fed, walked, etc. I don't remember anything about a dog track.
