    2. I was not enjoying this, and then I remembered that no one is making me read it. There were a few cute moments, but really it's just silly. Abandoned on the free shelf at work.

    3. Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know by Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson is just hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. I was laughing so hard at some points that my kids were running over to find out what was so funny. Of course, half the time they didn’t get the joke but they’re still young (ages 9, 6, and 5). My oldest asked if she could read it after me, so I just handed it off to her. :-)It’s not full of constant hilarity. Let’s face it; that would make reading nearly impossible. Between [...]

    4. A mixture of comedy and sadness by Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson with artwork by Dean Stefanides.Eleven dogs tell you their innermost thoughts.Sargearts a police dog with a fondness for pot. He goes to a junkyard and then a hospital and even the movie business It seems poor Sarge just can't keep a job. He gets into tons of trouble and yet at the same time, his stories are a tad sad. He just keeps getting abandonedor fired as he says.Moonbeam is a rescued dog living with a hippie. He's not too fond [...]

    5. MY THOUGHTSABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!Yes, I used exclamations points!!! This quick, little read about eleven dogs, from hippy-dippy to obedience school drop out will have you howling. Of course, there is a dachshund involve and Gabby captured my heart. She is a bit (ok, extremely) spoiled and a bit ditsy but she makes no excuses for it. Tinkerbell, a Chihuahua, is tired of being stuffed in a purse and has lots of friends she likes to hang out with. Don't piss her off since she might grab that blouse [...]

    6. Things Your Dog Doesn't Want you to Know is refreshing, and one of those books that will pick you up no matter how you're feeling. This book is meant to entertain, to be uplifting, and make you laugh. 11 different canines to fall in love with as they share with you why they do the things they do. But don't let anyone know they told you ;) For all dog lovers, animal lovers, or anyone looking for an easy, enjoyable read.

    7. If you are expecting a sweet laugh-filled little book, think again. There are plenty of laughable moments and everything works out for the best, but some of the dogs’ stories--like Sarge’s--aren’t all fun and games. Sophie’s final piece of advice made me cry.

    8. Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know by Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson is a cute and funny book designed to entertain. For the most part, the comedy works. And while you’re unlikely to turn to Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know for reference, it does make a great addition to a bathroom shelf or any place you might need some relaxed readings. Sometimes, you’ll even learn a few things about man’s best friend. Oh, and it’s mostly safely for the entire family to read.Cute and funny [...]

    9. FTC Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. I love my dogs. It’s really something that’s known to anyone who meets me. I talk about them as if they were my children. I mean, my oldest one is turning 6 this year, so it’s kind of hard not to form a bond with them.The one thing I love about my dogs — aside from the fact that they’re happy to see me whether I’ve left the house for a day, or for 3 minutes — is that they make me laugh [...]

    10. So this is a case of "don't judge a book by it's cover" and also "seriously do your research before you sign up for a book tour." Because the fact that I didn't enjoy this book is 100% my fault. See, what happened is that I saw the adorable cover with the cute little puppy faces and decided based on the title that it was going to contain dog facts/training advice. I glossed over the summary and didn't read the exerpt because I thought it would be like "I'm not a person" and then a little paragra [...]

    11. I don’t know what made me pick this book up. Books written in the voice of a dog? Not my usual reading. And, then I opened the book and read the first story. I can’t remember when I’ve laughed so hard. I was hooked! From the second story on, I began reading them aloud to my husband – who was looking a little weird at me. I guess it’s difficult to understand someone who is laughing so hard they are crying – and trying to read to you at the same time. I finally gave up. I’ve been kno [...]

    12. read complete review here: notjustnonsense/2When I first saw this book available for review on Netgalley, I just knew I had to read it. I knew it would be charming and fun, but it turned out to be so much better than I expected! "Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know: Eleven Courageous Canines Tell All" is a very short, very cute book. In it, we're first introduced to our lovely canine characters, all of different breeds, ages, behaviors, families and opinions. (and, oh, boy, do they have opi [...]

    13. I usually give my opinion of a book that I am reviewing at the end of the review, but this time I will open with it. I found Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You To Know by Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson to be everything a book should be. It is engaging, creative and memorable. Each of the 115 essays is presented in the words of one of eleven different dogs. After reading the first sentence of the first essay, as far as I was concerned, I believed I was listening to a dog.I tried to pick a favorite dog [...]

    14. Please read more of my reviews at sarahereads.wordpress/Since I received this as an ARC, it was not the complete book, so I can’t really give a full review since I only got to read the first 25 pages, or the first 7 stories in the complete version of this book that people who purchase it will get. The book is written from the point of view of the dogs, which makes it all the more funny. You get a rather comical look at what might go on in their brains.This first story was my favorite; it remin [...]

    15. Shockingly funny, Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know is a book that isn't afraid to take risks. There's a difference between reading something funny and reading something both funny and fresh. Thankfully this book, for the most part took on a fresh new perspective. There were times I was mentally saying to myself "You did not just say that!" That being said I also found some of the little tell-all stories lacking in comparison to the shock factor of the others. They seemed rather obvious a [...]

    16. I don't know how many of you know this but I'm a huge animal lover, at the last count we had 2 gerbils, 3 hamsters, 2 cats, 2 budgies and 1 golden retriever in our house that goes by the name of Annie so when my favourite book tour company sent me an invite for this book I just had to have it.The day I got it I remember flipping through it randomly and laughing hysterically with my mother who though the book from what she saw was the cutest thing. It also got the kiss of approval from Annie (She [...]

    17. The cover of this book is just darn cute. That gets your attention, but it's what you find on the inside that keeps you.This is the book about 11 dogs of various ages and breeds telling you what they think of their owners and those around them. There is the opinionated Border Collie who helped raise your kids if you did not know. Then there is the rich and spoiled Tinkerbell, a Chihuahua. The elderly Cocker Spaniel named Sophie who makes you want to cuddle her with tears in her eyes. Oh, and Gab [...]

    18. This is a darling book and I was thrilled when it came in the mail. My initial reaction when I started reading the book was one of confusion. I was expecting essays of a more serious/personal nature, perhaps, with a little comedy on the side. I did not realize that the book was going to be full of comedy sketches. Once I tuned in on that aspect--I had great fun with it.The graphic design is excellent! It is brightly colored in the style of a scrapbook. Each dog has its own page design and font f [...]

    19. Prior to my hiatus from blogging I was asked to review a fun looking book. It is a book written from a dog's perspective. It immediately caught me as something worth reviewing because how many times have I looked my pup in the eye and wondered what she was thinking. Also, lets be honest I often make a voice for my dog and speak dialog on her behalf. I read this book in a very short amount of time because it was just so stinking funny. It acts like a series of interview from 11 dogs, include Tink [...]

    20. This book review almost didn’t happen. My daughter saw the book on my coffee table and immediately grabbed it to take to her house.“Not so fast,” I told her. “I’m doing a book review. After I finish, I’ll let you borrow it.” If the book had made it into the depths of her handbag, I would have never seen it again and you wouldn’t be reading about this funny new release today.So you thought Bad Kitties was hilarious? This book takes the concept one step further. Instead of just see [...]

    21. I'm a sucker for dog books. I'm just an all around dog person, so when I first saw this, I knew I just had to read it. I love POV animal books, and with that adorable cover and the endorsements from a lot of funny people, I thought this may be one of the funniest books I picked up all year.Imagine my disappointment, then, when it turned out to only beokay. It had it's moments - I may have snorted appreciatively once or twice. But otherwise, it just fell flat for me. I really credit my main probl [...]

    22. The Deal: 11 very different and courageous dogs confess all you ever wanted to know about your own dog. In confessional style, dogs big and small, with all type of owners confess that no, they will never be full, no matter how much you feed them, that they think that you're spoiling the puppies, and that Birthdays aren't exactly all that important to the psyche of a canine. This among other stories. My Thoughts: I'm not going to rate Things Your Dog Doesn't WAnt You to Know. One because it doesn [...]

    23. This book is split into chapters in which each dog takes an issue and just tells you about it in their voice. The stories are consistant to the personalities they have created and you begin to look around at your dog and wonder what they are thinking or cringing at what they could be thinking. Of course if you don't have a dog I guess I'd wonder more about you if you are looking around for the invisible dog wondering what they are thinking but I digress ;)Some of the humor I admit made me cringe [...]

    24. I found Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know to be an adorably witty book and I had a smile on my face as I read about these dogs antics and thoughts. Plenty of it was very familiar.These adorable pups take turns sharing all sorts of secrets such as 'I will never be full', 'I hate your boyfriend' and 'I'm not a guard dog'. The book is put together very nicely including photos of the pups as each takes turns sharing their truths. Who knew there are so many things your dog doesn't want you to [...]

    25. I have a HUGE soft spot for dogs, so I was very excited to receive this book for review. Let me tell you, I LOVE this book!! Written from the dogs point of view, they tell you their thoughts on a lot of things you’ve probably wondered about, and why they do certain things.One of my favorites was “The Questionnaire”, answered by Rufus T. His answers are so funny!! One of the questions is “What makes you howl at the moon?” Rufus T. answers “I don’t howl. I sing–anything but country [...]

    26. What a charming and funny book this was. A very entertaining and light read. As a dog lover I found myself chuckling and nodding in agreement at some of the antics and views of the dogs. My Chocolate Labrador doesn’t need to learn any new tricks he pretty much could have written the book. Especially the part where one dog said he was constantly hungry and was never full mmm I know a certain pooch who could certainly relate to that.The layout was so refreshing it was colourful and quirky. It re [...]

    27. A cute book formatted to resemble letters, advice and stories from eleven different doggy individuals. Whether mutt or purebred this book will quickly catch the attention of both dog-lovers and owners alike. Hy Conrad has done a wonderful job in creating and keeping strong eleven different personalities throughout the book. This is done with unique tones for each and matching stationary, which is a reflection of the dog you are reading. For example with Gabby who is girly naive she always has a [...]

    28. Dear Human! What would happen if your dog could write you a letter? Things your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know lets you in on all of those secrets your dog is thinking. Eleven dogs, Axelrod, Bandana, Dimples, Tinkerbell, Orson, Sophie, Sarge, Charlie, Moonbeam, Gabby and Rufus T. share their dog-thoughts in the form of letters to their owner/parents. Some of the essays are funny, some strange, and a couple brought tears to my eyes. You can pretty much guess most of the topics such as food, toys, [...]

    29. I loved Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You To Know it was funny, entertaining and at times sad (especially the last story). We get various stories from 11 different dogs regarding their individual lives and as we read through the book we get to know them even better & their individual character shines. My favorites were Bandana, Orson, Tinkerbell, Sophie, & Charlie though they all won me over by the end. I really enjoyed how each dog had their own page style & font along with their ow [...]

    30. Aspen picked this book up at the library when we were looking for some puppy training books and when she saw that both Steve Martin and Mr. Monk (Tony Shaloub) endorsed it, she rushed it to the check out counter. We thought it would be a fun, fluffy read and on the whole it was. Tinkerbell the Chihuahua and Moonbeam the mutt were my favorites. Moonbeam is clearly a Durango doggie all the way. I nearly lost my breath laughing at some of Moonbeam's antics! So, when we read the final entry and ende [...]

    31. Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know by Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson is a humorous collection of stories from 11 dogs who bare all. Not only do they divulge secrets about why those “pee” walks take so long, but they also enlighten dog walkers on the order that dogs should be taken out and why. There are hijinks from dogs eating shoes and eating even mores hoes when owners lock them in the shoe closet, and there are dogs giving parenting advice to owners about their own puppies.Read the f [...]
