Moskau: Ein vierjähriger Junge erwacht in einer kalten leeren Wohnung. Er wartet auf den Onkel, doch der kommt nicht nach Hause. Auch seine Mutter nicht, deren Ermahnungen er im Ohr hat. Der Junge hat Angst vor dem Onkel, der ihm verboten hat, sein Zimmer zu verlassen. Doch er ist hungrig, faßt Mut und verläßt die Wohnung. Der Junge, Romochka, ist allein. Es schneit, die Menschen beachten ihn nicht, nur ein Hund nähert sich ihm, aggressiv, dann neugierig. Romochka folgt dem Hund, und der Hund – die Hündin – gestattet ihm zu folgen. Hin zu ihrer Höhle in einem verlassenen Gebäude. Zu seiner neuen Familie. Romochkas Leben als Hund beginnt. „Dog Boy befasst sich intensiv mit der Frage, was das Menschsein ausmacht, wie wir zu Menschen werden und wie wir es schaffen, an unserer Menschlichkeit, wenn wir sie einmal besitzen, festzuhalten.“ Donna Leon

He is born on a bare hillside near the end of the Dry Time. Abandoned by his mother, cared for and suckled only by a dog, he becomes a creature of the wilds. To the poor villagers, he hardly appears human at all, and they reject him. Yet the dog-boy, as he is called, proves to be a survivor. Against the odds, and in spite of his savage upbringing, he grows into a 'special' child – someone destined to change the lives of all who cross is path. From a master fantasy writer comes the compelling story of a boy's strange and perilous journey to manhood. Here is the tale which questions who we are and how we relate to the natural world.

Over the past thirty years, as Wesley J. Smith details in his latest book, the concept of animal rights has been seeping into the very bone marrow of Western culture. One reason for this development is that the term “animal rights” is so often used very loosely, to mean simply being nicer to animals. But although animal rights groups do sometimes focus their activism on promoting animal welfare, the larger movement they represent is actually advancing a radical belief system. For some activists, the animal rights ideology amounts to a quasi religion, one whose central doctrine declares a moral equivalency between the value of animal lives and the value of human lives. Animal rights ideologues embrace their beliefs with a fervor that is remarkably intense and sustained, to the point that many dedicate their entire lives to “speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.” Some believe their cause to be so righteous that it entitles them to cross the line from legitimate advocacy to vandalism and harassment, or even terrorism against medical researchers, the fur and food industries, and others they accuse of abusing animals. All people who love animals and recognize their intrinsic worth can agree with Wesley J. Smith that human beings owe animals respect, kindness, and humane care. But Smith argues eloquently that our obligation to humanity matters more, and that granting “rights” to animals would inevitably diminish human dignity. In making this case with reason and passion, A Rat Is a Pig Is a Dog Is a Boy strikes a major blow against a radically antihuman dogma.
