Dog Joy: The Happiest Dogs in the Universe

Dog JoyAnyone who knows dogs also knows that dogs know how to live life. They sure can get happy and excited, even over the littlest things!

Is there anything better than a happy dog? One look at their excited faces, wagging tails, and smiling eyes is enough to melt even the hardest of hearts. Now, some of the most joyous and adorable family dogs can be seen in what is sure to be the most “Awww”-inspiring book of the holiday season: DogJoy: The Happiest Dogs in the Universe.

From the editors of THE BARK magazine, DogJoy: The Happiest Dogs in the Universe is a collection of 300 of the very best full-color pics from the pack! Each entry features either a personal tale or a hilarious caption—but the real story is all in the photos themselves.

Whether you love the Laughers, Giggler, Sweeties, or one of the many other categories of joyful dogs featured in this book, it will be hard to choose your favorite.

We got a chance to see a copy of the book and love it! There are some truly funny photos inside, and all of them made us smile big. Of course we were particularly fond of the smiling dogs who had been rescued, but they were all so cute it would be hard to pick a favorite. We think it would be a perfect gift for the animal lover in your life. Doesn’t everyone need a bit more joy?

Enter to win! One lucky reader will get a copy of Dog Joy! Just leave a comment on this post telling us a story of how your dog shows joy. The giveaway will close at midnight on December 1st. You may enter daily until the giveaway ends. The winner will be chosen at random and contacted by email, so be sure your email address is correct in the comment form.

    When my dogs are happy they give kisses and run laps through the living room with their tags wagging as fast as they can

  2. Kellie Conklin says:

    Our littlest dachshund will jump onto our bellies and bite our noses whenever we come home. She is so excited to see us and it’s hard to say no biting when you’re laughing! thanks for the giveaway!

    Our one dog when I say “I love you” to him..he makes grunt noises back. I hope that’s showing joy and not him disgruntled. LOL

  4. Lorri Park says:

    My dog seems to be part astronaut. You let her get on a diving board and she leaps into the air landing joyously in the pool then can’t wait to do it again. It is her most favorite activity!

  5. Kelly Ann T. says:

    My dog hops around. He gets so excited and his whole body wiggles and then he hops around on all four paws. It is so cute.

  6. Benita G. says:

    Bambina, my terrier, is the happiest dog in the world. In fact, I often think I see her smile. We humans can sure take a lesson on how to be happy, from our puppies.

    When Duchess gets excited, she wags her tail in a full 360 degree circle. We call it the helicopter. So cute!

    Man I dont think there could be any thing purely happier than a happy dog. My buddies dog had a deer leg (gross,very gross I know) that he would hide in random places around the farm. When that dog would “rediscover” that horrid thing, he would parade it around like he was the king of the world. Woe the sole who tried to dispose of it.

  9. doubleM says:

    The picture on the cover says it all; my dog is the same way. In fact, the first day we brought him home from the shelter, he made a beeline for the bedroom, leaped onto the bed, and started rolling around, like he’d lived there all his life.
