Q+A with GABBY from THINGS YOUR DOG DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW *GIVEAWAY* @sourcebooks





QUESTION:
Gabby, you seem to be having a fabulous life. What’s your biggest disappointment so far?

ANSWER:
Realizing I don’t have my own phone. I know! I was shocked. For the longest time I kept giving out the number on my collar then wondering why the boys weren’t calling. Turns out that’s my human’s number. Can you believe it? Screening my calls? I’m so mad I can’t pee straight.

QUESTION:
In your photos, you always look so perfect and pulled together. What’s your secret?

ANSWER:
It's a secret. But here’s a hint. It involves rolling in poop. Then the humans get all disgusty-face and send you to the spa. I love the spa! They make a big fuss and give you a bath and do your nails. And the head groomer is a magician. Yes. He does these cool magic tricks when he’s brushing you out. It’s heaven.

QUESTION:
During the course of the book you celebrate your first birthday. What are your thoughts on getting older?

ANSWER:
I am not getting old. Let’s nip that rumor in the butt. A year for us is not like seven, okay? I know dogs who are ten who still live in the basement with their parents. My six year old friend, Pup, still gets called “puppy.” And I will always be a sweet, spoiled little girl. My humans will see to that, thank you very much.


Book Description



A series of 115 short essays written by eleven courageous canines who are willing to tell the truth about dogs every last dirty, hairy, bit of it: why they always dash to a rug when they have to throw up, why they eat furniture when endless chew toys are nearby, and why they're always absolutely starving. Peppered with lively, clever stories and visually appealing photographs, Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know is a must-have for any dog lover. It's a verbal and visual delight that is laugh-out-loud funny.
"If everyone owned a dog, we would have world peace. If everyone reads this book, they will go and get a dog and we will have taken a big step in the right direction. So this book can save the world."
Terrence McNally, playwright

  9. My dog always looked so ashamed when he does something wrong and I know he is just laughing behind his paw.
    Sounds like an amusing read. Thanks for the giveaway.
