Man Meets Dog

Man Meets Dog is a zoological book for the general audience, written by the Austrian scientist Konrad Lorenz in 1949. The first English-language edition appeared in 1954.
The original German title is So kam der Mensch auf den Hund, which could be literally translated as “How man ended up with dog”. The German title is also a play on the phrase “Auf den Hund kommen”, which is a common idiom in German-speaking countries and probably comes from the old days when farmers with economic problems had to sell their livestock animals and ended up with only the dog.
