Overview

Bad habits, bad attitudes, bad breath. With a weakness for bad outfits and having bad hair days. Dogs are no less bad than cats, so it was only a matter of time before, emboldened by the runaway success of Bad Cat, the #1 New York Times bestseller with 487,000 copies in print, dogs would be begging for the chance to speak out. Dogs like:

Trixie, the puppy eating her own foot, who says: “If you’re wondering, it tastes like chicken.” Or the aging Sam, eyes popping out of his head and granny glasses askew: “Sweet mother of mercy—the Viagra’s working!” Or Tasia, a big mutt forced to wear little Santa hats, who snarls: “I’d like to roast your chestnuts on an open fire.” There’s Dallas the surly yoga instructor. The old letch Samson, half-mastiff and half-slobber. Barley of the Order of the Vested Shih Tzus. Devil-worshipping Penny. Friend of sailors Miz Skeeter Bug. And Charlie, whose words should be heeded by every owner who thinks it’s cute to dress up the family pet: “Listen to me! I am not a bird. I am not a plane. I’m just your dog, Charlie.” In the same format as Bad Cat, with 244 truly funny photographs (including a number of group portraits), plus name, age, hobby, and candid quote.

I had skimmed through a prior hardcover edition & found it clever both in comedy & quality of the pictures.I sent as a gift to my 26 yr old son who has his 1st dog for about 6 months.My son is both a writer & an artist & both he & his dog enjoyed this entertaining book.

Lighthearted, funny and plain weird - worth the money

This is a very entertaining book but not kid appropriate! My daughter picked up the book and I gave it a quick glance and bought it. Upon bringing the book home I had to apologize and remove the book for strong sexual content. For adults though, it is very entertaining!

Unless you're a prude, you're going to enjoy this book. The pictures are cute and most of the captions are funny! Yes, there are a FEW (and I repeat, FEW) mild curses and sexual references, but it's nothing different than what you'd see/hear on tv or in the movies. I wouldn't recommend giving this book to a child, but if you're an adult or young adult, you'll see the humor in this book! Worth every penny.

This book was the biggest waste of time & money. It wasn't even funny. I didn't like their sense of humor. It had some swearing & alot of little sexual comments.

This book is even funnier than Bad Cat. I spent an hour laughing over the antics of these dogs. I don't know how some of these dogs were posed so creatively, but the 278 'outspoken, indecent and overdressed dogs' in the book are adorable, amusing and well worth the $9.95 price. I plan to buy a dozen for Christmas presents.
