For the past few weeks I've been catching up on, "Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know." I always imagine the things that Astrea is really thinking when we're talking to her - especially now that we make her "say" banana before she can have one - so it's been very fun to see that I'm not the only one who thinks dogs have a great inner monologue.
"Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You to Know," is a collection of short essays from eleven dogs brought to life by Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson. The confessions these dogs make range from their thoughts on food to destruction of property and of course the ever important poop. One of my hands down favorites is from a drug sniffing dog named Sarge. Sarge's confessions of his "habit" may have made me tearing up a little from laughing so hard. Each of the dogs have their own personality, life, and hilarious story to tell - which means I am occasionally that crazy lady on the train laughing out loud at her book.
If you're looking for a funny, easy read that you can pick up whenever you want with out worrying about where you left off I'd definitely suggest picking this one up! And if you'd like a preview before you buy... check out one of Tinkerbell's thoughts on her birthday-

The Yellow Dog Project is an awareness and global mobilization to help people recognize a dog that needs space. By adding a small yellow ribbon to the leash, we hope to give owners and general public the ability to identify dogs that are not ready to say hi. This includes dogs that have had surgery, are in training, just need space, or are in a rehab/rescue program.
So, if you see a dog with a yellow ribbon on its leash, please give that dog some space. Also, if you have a dog that may need some space, please tie a yellow ribbon on the leash to help signify to others to stay back. And above all - spread the word! Let's get this movement going so that we can keep ourselves and our dogs healthy and happy while out in public!
