The Dangerous Book For Dogs by Rex and Sparky (Joe Garden) (Book Review 2010-117)

Product Description

A LAUGH-OUT-LOUD PARODY: AN lLLUSTRATED GUIDE FOR--AND BY--DOGS, UNLOCKING THE MYSTERIES OF DOGHOOD AND TEACHING THEM HOW TO DO THE VERY ACTIVITIES THAT HUMAN SOCIETY SAYS ARE WRONG.

The Dangerous Book for Dogs asks a simple question: isn't there more to being a dog than wearing a mini cashmere sweater and riding around in a $400 evening clutch? What about the simple pleasures of life -- feeling the wind in your fur, digging up the grass beneath your paws, smelling another dog's butt? Isn't that part of the great joy of being a dog?

Written (with help) by dogs and for dogs, The Dangerous Book For Dogs provides insight on everything from the tastiest styles of shoes to chew to the proper method for terrorizing squirrels. It also contains portraits of noble dogs throughout history, the mysteries of cats and humans, and everything else your dog ever wanted to know but was afraid to ask–like how to make toys out of human's household items, or how to escape from a humiliating reindeer costume.

Generously illustrated with drawings by cartoonist Emily Flake, this hilarious parody is for good dogs, bad dogs, and the millions of people who love them.

Rex and Sparky wrote this parody without authorization (because they are dogs and they do what they want.)

LOVED IT

A perfect read for the dog days of summer.  Let Sparky and Rex teach you all of the proper methods for begging, digging and barking.  I think most dogs have already read this book and someone took notes to let the others know what they are missing.  The section on squirrels is probably one of the funniest things I have ever read.  A very enjoyable treat for all dog lovers.

  2. Hi! Sounds like a cool read. I saw a book the other day at Barnes and Noble the title was "Why dogs eat poop and other oddities".
