a week or so ago i posted about my adventure at the george memorial library with connie. i told you about some of the books that i borrowed and how excited i was.
one of those books was called 'things your dog doesn't want you to know' by hy conrad & jeff johnson. i didn't give it a full review because i had only seen a couple pages. of course by now i've completed the book and srsly LMAO!
the book starts off by introducing you to 11 canines and where they are in life. that introduction alone had me sold! this book makes it clear as to what dogs are thinking, why they act the way they do, and why they care for us so much.
the canines include: axelrod the yellow lab, bandana the border collie, dimples the boxer, tinkerbell the chihuahua, orson the bulldog, sophie the cocker spaniel, sarge the german shepherd, charlie the miniture schnauzer, moonbeam the mixed breed, gabby the long-haired dachshund, and rufus t. the bloodhound.
if you have a dog, have had a dog, or really want a dog this book is for you. it's pure comedy and i definitely recommend it for all ages.
the following are two chapters in the book that made me LOL!
click the pictures to make them easier to read.
on friday, jeff johnson one of the authors emailed me about my previous review and asked if i was interested in a giveaway! i, of course, squeeeeeled lol i've only done one giveaway and that came straight from me. to be contacted by an author that obviously has a great humor made me super excited. for a good 7 minutes after i read the email and told my husband the only thing i could say was OHMYGAWD! lame i know but it's exciting to me! not to mention jeff is a pretty cool guy! :]
