Chazz’s Literary Corner – Book Review & GiveAway 12.12.12
Posted by adoptedmom
Chazz’s Literary Corner is proud to now review a new book from Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson, Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You To Know published by Sourcebooks, April 2012. Genre: Pets, Humor
This book is a fun look at how we as humans struggle to figure out some of our best pups behavior. With the help from some Courageous Canines, this book helps to unravel the questions that most dog owners ask themselves at one time or another.
The pages of this book are filled with howlingly funny stories and examples of dog behavior – most of us have seen from our own canines… and frankly never understood. Now, here for the first time…well to mix metaphors…the cat is out of the bag!
Authors Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson, with an able assist from 11 talkative canines have cracked the code for the rest of us. You may laugh till you cry, it’s that good. Nice illustrations as well. Kudos Dean Stefanides.
“Anyone who has ever spent time with a dog has pondered the question, “What’s going through that little pea brain?” Sure, there have been books written about what, if anything, the average dog is thinking. But those books were all written by people. Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know is written by, well, dogs.”
Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know answers the questions that dog owners have asked for centuries. The book is a collection of 115 humorous essays that reveal the truth behind some of the most baffling canine behavior, their hopes and dreams, their grudges and pleasures, and what they really think about us humans. Peppered with lively, clever stories and visually appealing photographs, Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know is a verbal and visual delight that is laugh-out-loud funny. If you have dogs, love dogs, or have ever been baffled by a dog, this book is a must-have.
