It was a rainy fall day in Pennsylvania farm country. I was assisting the farmhand and the extension service veterinarian in separating the calves from a herd of some eighty Angus cows. The process involved herding the cattle into a pen and sending them one at a time through a shoot, where a vet inspection was performed and the bull calves castrated. On the other end of the shoot, the cows were put into one pen and the calves into another, later to be sent to separate grazing fields. For the following week the bucolic countryside was filled with the mournful moans of mothers and calves, calling out for each other, grieving over this forced separation. In time, the female calves would be reunited with the herd for breeding and the male calves sent off for slaughter.

Summary "The Companion Species Manifesto" is about the implosion of nature and culture in the joint lives of dogs and people, who are bonded in "significant otherness". In all their historical complexity, Donna Haraway tells us, dogs matter. They are not surrogates for theory, she says; they are not here just to think with.
Neither are they just an alibi for other themes; dogs are fleshly material-semiotic presences in the body of technoscience. They are here to live with.
Partners in the crime of human evolution, they are in the garden from the get-go, wily as Coyote. This pamphlet is Haraway's answer to her own "Cyborg Manifesto", where the slogan for living on the edge of global war has to be not just "cyborgs for earthly survival", but also, in a more doggish idiom, "shut up and train".

The Companion Species Manifesto
Life is Ruff: The Ethics of Companion Animals According to Donna Haraway
Dogs have fulfilled many roles for us. This relationship is also obligatory and constitutive, or in other words, ethical. But surely, one might ask, dogs are not the only companion species? He loves belly rubs, long naps, and hunting lizards, bugs and roaches in the garage. In other words, power over bodies expresses itself through the construction of a scientific knowledge of species.
