Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know review and giveaway

A simple premise leads to a hysterical book. 11 dogs bare their sweet souls to us, their people and friends, sharing everything from why their puppies are biting us, to what goes on in a junkyard during the day, and even an apology for "accidentally" eating up the tofu. Incredibly silly and so much fun.

My favorite was the first dog, Orson, because he happens to be a foodie bulldog. I have a bulldog and though she's not quite as keen to eat everything, as Orson most definitely is, she too could be considered a foodie dog. When Orson tells the story of how Thanksgiving yams become quite the issue in his life. Adorable!

"I know when another dog gets a treat and I don't. Even when I'm not there, like in another room or down the street." So my dog. She can sniff out a treat like a hound. And hound she most certainly is not.

I'm a sucker for a good dog book and this one was hilarious! It's perfect for a conversation starter (stick it on an end table somewhere) or as a lighthearted gift book. If you have a dog lover in your life, especially one with a sense of humor, I would highly recommend passing this one along. If Steve Martin blurbs it, you know you're in for a funny read.

If you'd like to win a copy for yourself, just comment on this post by next Saturday! It would make a great gift for a dog lover.
