Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know by Hy Conrad & Jeff Johnson: Promo and Giveaway!

Brought to you by Virtual Book Tour Café...

Released April 2012 from Sourcebooks...
Why do dogs eat furniture when there are endless chew toys nearby?

Why do they always dash to a rug when they have to throw up?

And why are they always absolutely starving?

Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know answers the questions that dog owners have asked for centuries. The book is a collection of 115 humorous essays that reveal the truth behind some of the most baffling canine behavior, their hopes and dreams, their grudges and pleasures, and what they really think about us humans. Peppered with lively, clever stories and visually appealing photographs, Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know is a verbal and visual delight that is laugh-out-loud funny.

If you have dogs, love dogs, or have ever been baffled by a dog, this book is a must-have.
