Meet Parker, a happy, healthy, and thoughtful Hungarian Pointer--better known as a Vizsla. Parker has spent years observing his humans, and in A Dog's Eye View he offers a series of lighthearted observations and thoughts about human behavior at both work and play. Parker sees so many unhappy people struggling with unnecessary stress and other manmade problems as they try to live and work happy and productive lives. Vizslas are smart, fun-loving dogs, but poor Parker has endured many hours of listening to the problems humans suffer through at work and throughout their careers. Parker leaps up each morning to run and play and enjoy his humans (and his niece, Reign, and her daughter, Katie)--and Parker would like everyone to enjoy and appreciate their work. Why can't people leap out of bed each day like he does and go to work for another fun-filled day? Parker has advice, tips, and sharp-eyed counsel.
In chapters such as "Barking Mad," "Gotta Scratch That Itch!," and "My Bones Are Aching for Bones," Parker provides insights into communications, leadership, ethics, respect, and payment and reward systems. How and why do we act the way we do at work? Why do those in charge act the way they do? How much does self-awareness matter at work? How much are we worth? Does loyalty matter?
Parker offers amusing and thought-provoking anecdotes from the animal kingdom and provides real solutions for improvement. Parker knows that the workplace can be a pleasant place if only humans might change some of their perspectives by re-thinking how they work--and how they think about themselves and others.
Animals have so much to teach us humans--if only we are prepared to observe, listen, and learn.
