dog Confessions shocking tales straight from the doghouse by Allia Zobel Nolan
This is a short book, just 64 pages. The photos of the animals are excellent, with lots of great expressions on the faces of the dogs. Love all the different choices of the dogs that are used. They gave a lot of breeds a chance to be showcased. There are a few with more than one dog, and one with three little culprits, which I think is one of my favorites The Three Amigo Banditos! The kids adored the pictures of the dogs that look like they are wearing old fashioned mops...and saying they have hair extensions!
The author does explain that she is a Cat person, but her Hubby is a lover of Man's Companion. She told that her feline fur children, were out of sorts with her writing this book...but she had them partake of the month-long salmon-and-cream bribe. She apologized to her little darlings for writing about dogs!
I shared this with my 4 and 6 year old and they loved hearing the captions that go with the pictures. Some are hysterical, and they were giggling. Of course he loves animals. He wanted the book read over and over.
As it said on the cover, these pups are covering up their crimes, and the photo's are priceless. These are all quotes that are trying to get them out of the Doghouse!! To funny!!
I found some really great, and others just didn't quite make it.
For my little ones the pictures alone are worth having the book!
I received this book from Reader's Favorite, and was not required to give a positive review.
