This is perfection in a book concerning the male dog's state of mind and that of those who love him. You will fall off your chair laughing. You may want to have some Depends handy too since bladder control while reading might be an issue for some. It's indecently hilarious!

A delightfully funny collection of cartoons about a man and his dog. Had me laughing from start to finish.

This is a cute and hilarious take on our relationship with dogs. As well as the perception of how dogs view their environment(s).The animations are outstanding.Humorous and touching narrative is present throughout the book.Overall, a great read.

I'm glad that I decided to buy this little hardcover version of the popular webcomic. As a dog lover and best friend to a quirky thirteen year-old mutt, I found myself agreeing with just about all of the points raised in this book and also wishing my dog could be immortal. Pet lovers, comic fans, and anyone who's ever experienced the paradox that is dog should read this book. This is meant to be a gift for someone who might not read the comic online or for your own collection if you want access to it without having to turn your computer on, so don't be disappointed that it's one comic or that it's been published before. Take the purpose into consideration. It'd make a great gift for any dog lover.

Cute, but really short. Even though I'm a cat person, I liked this better than "How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You". Funnier.
