Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You To Know

Listen up dog lovers, your dog might have something to say to you! Something secret! Even if your dog isn’t talking, there are 11 courageous canines telling all in a fun new book Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know: Eleven Courageous Canines Tell All. Open the pages to find juicy secrets and adorable dog photos and illustrations.

Topics include:

My Life in Your Purse by Tinkerbell, the Chihuahua
Waiting by the Table (for food scraps, of course!) by Orson, the bulldog
The Bed Rules (Rule #1β€”It’s my bed) by Dimples, the boxer
The Reason I Ate the Sofa (leather tastes a lot like rawhide) by Axelrod, the yellow lab
I Can Poop the Second I Start My Walk (but choose not to) by Sophie, the cocker spaniel

It’s a funny read to be sure, but there are some touching moments too, like when Sophie talks about getting “too far ahead”. You will also get to learn “canine games” such as the last bark, or petting tag! All in all it’s a great book for anyone who has ever loved a dog and wondered why they do the things they do.

The authors, Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson did a wonderful job trying to get into the mind of 11 different dog personalities. Hy Conrad is best known for his writing on the series Monk. Jeff Johnson is known for his writing, and his national advice column Short Answers. Both men love dogs, Hy has two miniature schnauzers, and Jeff is on the board of directors for the Florida Keys SPCA.

Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know: Eleven Courageous Canines Tell All would be a great gift idea for any dog lover in your life. I know that I have enjoyed reading it. Also, be sure to visit the Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You To Know website, you might even find out why your dog does something!
