Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know: Eleven Courageous Canines Tell All by Jeff Johnson and Hy Conrad

I laughed so hard, I woke the dog. Seriously!

This book is so much fun to read and a perfect gift/read for dog lovers.  You will devourer this cute, quick read about eleven adorable dogs. The book is written from the "voice" of the dogs and couldn't be a more delightful read.

Grade: A+

Overview [B&N]

Dear Human:
Your dog probably puzzles you. Most of us do that. And most of us would like to keep things as they are: humans in the dark, dogs with the upper hand.
But we dogs are about to let you in a little secret. Okay, a lot of secrets.
  • We graduated first in our obedience class three times. This should tell you something.
  • Puppies know that they're being cute. They're using you.
  • We don't sound anything like those silly voices you use to imitate us.
  • We hate those ridiculous names you give some of us. Moonbeam is not a dignified name for a mutt.
  • You might want to check your herb garden for fertilizer.
  • We are only wearing this stupid birthday hat so we can get some cake. No self-respecting dog cares about his birthday.
  • We are not spoiled, certainly not in comparison to teenage girls.
  • We are in charge of the house. We let you pretend that you are.
  • We'd be lost without you. We love you.
