Bad habits, bad attitudes, bad breath. With a weakness for bad outfits and having bad hair days. Dogs are no less bad than cats, so it was only a matter of time before, emboldened by the runaway success of "Bad Cat," the #1 "New York Times" bestseller with 487,000 copies in print, dogs would be begging for the chance to speak out. Dogs like: Trixie, the puppy eating her own foot, who says: ""If you're wondering, it tastes like chicken."" Or the aging Sam, eyes popping out of his head and granny glasses askew: ""Sweet mother of mercy--the Viagra's working "" Or Tasia, a big mutt forced to wear little Santa hats, who snarls: ""I'd like to roast your chestnuts on an open fire." "There's Dallas the surly yoga instructor. The old letch Samson, half-mastiff and half-slobber. Barley of the Order of the Vested Shih Tzus. Devil-worshipping Penny. Friend of sailors Miz Skeeter Bug. And Charlie, whose words should be heeded by every owner who thinks it's cute to dress up the family pet: ""Listen to me I am not a bird. I am not a plane. I'm just your dog, Charlie."" In the same format as "Bad Cat," with 244 truly funny photographs (including a number of group portraits), plus name, age, hobby, and candid quote.
