A pot roast left unguarded. An open bedroom door. An ill-timed squat. Dogs seem to have impeccable timing. Yet how quickly calamity turns to comedy in the company of a dog, and the wrong moment turns out to be just the right one.
In this delightful follow-up to "Dog Is My Co-Pilot," which won the Best Book of the Year award from the Dog Writers Association of America, the editors of "The Bark" bring together more stories, essays, and artwork that highlight the hilarity of dog behavior and the comical interactions between dog people and their four-legged friends.
From playful puppies who wreak havoc in the home to dogs with a whole array of comic shticks and tricks, "Howl" celebrates the verve and the laughs pets offer their people. It includes laugh-out-loud reflections (and confessions), rib-tickling tales, and whimsical vignettes from well-known writers such as:
- Dave Barry
- Margaret Cho
- Al Franken
- Kinky Friedman
- Pam Houston
- Haven Kimmel
- Neal Pollack
- And many more
