From the Publisher"A book that celebrates the dogcentricity of our language and culture ought to be as charming, funny and irresistible as dogs are. And You're My Dawg, Dog is."
— John Berendt, best-selling author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
I would say I was as happy as a clam while reading You're My Dawg, Dog, but a dog with two tails fits the bill better. Having written my master's essay in a large part about animal metaphors, I was surprised that the book even included several terms and expressions that were new to me. Overall, I would call You're My Dawg, Dog a delightful romp in a doggy word park. And Stanley agrees too. Here he is reading his already dog-eared copy.

Pretty much any dog person will enjoy this book. It has enough of the familiar to be comfortable, plenty of obscure terms to keep it interesting, and darling, lighthearted illustrations to make you smile. – Susan Chaney, Best In Show Daily, March 12, 2013
"Mr. Friedman has infused humor and his own embellishments while providing the etymology of 'dog words,' referencing such luminaries as Groucho Marx, Jean Shepherd, Truman, Pat Boone, Mike Tyson, Sarah Palin and Rihanna, just to name a few. After reading this small tome, you'll be ready for the category of dog terms on Jeopardy!" – Lynn Kimmerle, Monarch Book Reviews, March 4, 2013
"Churchill referred to his black depression as the "black dog." Conservative and moderate Democrats however, are "blue dogs." But when we get dressed up for an evening on the town, we say we're "putting on the dog." In fact the number of dog-related terms of speech could fill a book, which is what Friedman and Suarès have done here. The illustrations are charming, the definitions are amusing. It's the perfect gift for someone who needs to be cheered up—someone who, say, is sick as a dog."
