The book you are referring to is "Lives of the Monster Dogs" by Kirsten Bakis (Warner Books, 1997)

In this imaginative novel, super intelligent giant dogs colonize 21st-century New York and are the toast of town until they can't cope and barricade themselves inside a fantastic castle.

I once read a book, but much earlier, in the early 80's. about a group of talking wild dogs that, from what I recall, were overtaking humans. I have alwys searched for the book again but have never found it. I remeber it being titled THE HAVEN. Your description is the closest thing I have ever found to what I have been looking for.

All things Science Fiction; but mainly in English - my linguistic skills are limited to English (as practiced here in the USA ;). I have an extensive background in the ideas/theories/writings in both SciFi and futurism; not so much in the horror genre.


Other than being a Trekie from the original series thru the present, and an *avid* fan of all things SF (epecially written) - i've written a few SciFi short stories as well as *most of* an SF screen play called "Hard Fall". I routinely read and write about SF since as James Blish (who in addition to his own works novelised the original Star Trek episodes) put it: "Science Fiction is the Literature of the Future".

BSCS, University of North Texas, Denton. MA (ATEC), University of Dallas, Richardson. And way too many remedial English classes; I suffer from a "language deficit" - as we say Political-Correct-Speek.
