Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know by Jeff Johnson & Hy Conrad

Okay, first I featured a charming little book filled with heart-warming tales about the author and the sometimes zany, sometimes heroic, all-the-time lovable dogs in her life here on the Blog-Zine, and you loved it. Now, I'm featuring a book like no other - an equally charming little book filled with heart-warming tales about dogs and the sometimes zany, sometimes nerve-wracking owners in their lives!

If you have fur-babies, then you've probably asked yourself one or all of the following questions:

Why do dogs eat furniture when there are endless chew toys nearby? Why do they always dash to a rug when they have to throw up? And why are they always absolutely starving?

Now there are finally answers to all of your questions and possibly even a few that you haven't yet thought of! Read on...

Things YourDog Doesn’t Want You to Know answers the questions that dog owners have asked for centuries. The book is a collection of 115 humorous essays that reveal the truth behind some of the most baffling canine behavior, their hopes and dreams, their grudges and pleasures, and what they really think about us humans.  Peppered with lively, clever stories and visually appealing photographs, Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know is a verbal and visual delight that is laugh-out-loud funny.  If you have dogs, love dogs, or have ever been baffled by a dog, this book is a must-have!

When I read the book, I looked over at my dog and wondered if that was really what she was thinking. Probably.
