LOVED this book--a very diverse range of funny and poignant dog stories that will warm your heart and give you some good laughs. And 50% of the royalties for this book are going to the Humane Society, which is awesome.

Did you know that the last Sunday in April is actually "National Pet Parents Day?" Not a surprising revelation, considering the growing trends of dogs and other pets becoming an integral part of what constitutes a "family" in our society today. The very funny Wade Rouse has gotten together a group of twenty fellow authors, comedians and humorists, about half of them gay or lesbian, and gotten them to talk about their relationship with their canine companions, current or past. The result is this clever, amusing and occasionally poignant anthology, showing just how otherwise-logical, responsible people can approach insanity in dealing with their dogs, most of them shelter rescues. We learning that "training" is a two-way street, worry about our pups being accepted by their peers at doggie daycare, compromise on sleeping arrangements, and - for a partner who isn't crazy about the dog - make it clear that an "It's me or the dog!"-ultimatum would likely result in a response he wouldn't like. With a "Paw Foreword" by Chelsea Handler's dog, the anthology includes writings by Jen Lancaster, Alec Mapa, Rita Mae Brown, Bob Smith, Laurie Notaro, Jane Green, W. Bruce Cameron and others, as well as Rouse. Rouse is also donating 10% of the royalties from the book to The Humane Society of the United States. A great holiday gift for pet lovers, which I give five full stars out of five. - Bob Lind, Echo Magazine
