The Book That Tells You Exactly What Dogs Think

When I first became acquainted with LOL Dogs, I don't think I really got the concept. Pictures of dogs, many wearing costumes, with captions that were, at best, illiterate. Some of the misspellings so complete that I never did figure out what the dog was supposed to be thinking (or saying). But that was then, and this is. well, you know.


Our pets give us some hilarious photo opportunities. No question. I've got a cat that you would think was possessed every time he yawns. Boris the Bad not only looks ferocious, he looks absolutely insane. I am clearly not the only person in the world with such a pet, as is evidenced within the pages of LOL Dogs. Thanks to the internet, people no longer have to appreciate their dogs' or cats' embarrassing moments alone - we can share them, worldwide, with others. I'm not convinced my furry companions don't use the computer when I'm asleep, so it shouldn't come as a surprise if one of them slits my throat as I slumber for humiliating him or her online.


Seeing the expressions on many of the dogs in LOL Dogs, we may not be surprised if they have similar thoughts about their humans. For whatever reason, wet dogs are particularly funny, and the added captions are usually very fitting or hilarious. Also, dogs that are threatening the lives of their photographers are especially entertaining - there are two, a vampire dog and what can best be described as a devil dog, that I found hysterical.


There are also lessons to be learned from LOL Dogs. The one that springs to mind is that no matter how adorable you think your dog looks in a dress, sweater, or t-shirt, take a look at another dog dressed similarly and you'll find it not only not adorable, but also absurd. You may still think your dog looks cute, but it's a pretty sure bet that other dogs don't think so.


What makes LOL Dogs so funny is that the captions combine the unexpected with the "aha!" - those things you just knew a dog would say if it attempted human-speak. LOL Dogs is an open-to-any-page book, the type you need not start at page one. It is also best taken in small doses, although once immersed in its pages, you may find it hard to put down.
Bottom Line: Would I buy LOL Dogs? Yes; I like dogs and I like humor. What could be better than funny dogs with an attitude?

Is this a remake of LOL cats?
