Why do dogs always dash to a rug when they have to throw up? Why do they eat furniture when endless chew toys are nearby? And why are they always absolutely starving? Get the inside scoop on the other half of the conversation in this lively, clever gift book filled with unforgettable canines who will tell you the truth about dogs—every last dirty, hairy bit of it. Peppered with charmingly devious photos and "my dog does that too!" stories that any dog-lover will recognize, Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know is a must-have for anyone who has a soft spot for a pooch. It's a verbal and visual delight that is laugh-out-loud funny.

So here is another dog book I really want to read!  I adore books like this! Too bad they didn't ask Schatze to pose for the cover.  She is quite photogenic.


  1. totally adding that book to my list. I would ask Bailey, but as he speaks French and mine's a little rusty, i dont quite understand.

  2. Sounds interesting. I definitely would like to know the answer to a few of the questions in the summary. LOL

  3. Thanks for the nice comments about my new book (Things Your Dog). I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And feel free to send me any questions about your own dog's behavior ( Jeff Johnson
