  • The Bluffer’s Guide To Dogs – Simon Whaley
    onto your social media accounts when you re not looking Growling can mean enjoyment especially if it involves playing tug of war with something like the cat next door or a human limb Allowing a dog to drink stagnant pond water is neither good for the dog s digestive system nor for the owner s living room shagpile carpet Many employers find dogs to be better workers than their human counterparts They re not unionised so they will happily work overtime and they are unlikely to demand additional remuneration or benefits How many people would still be languishing in mine shafts if it hadn t been for Lassie Dogs don t expect a call when you re late in fact the later you are the more excited they are to see you Reviews I enjoyed reading this book immensely it was lighthearted full of humour and the author seems to understand the weird and wonderful minds of dogs very well Having been the owner of quite a few rescue dogs for the past 26 years all with their own personalities and strange traits I recognised much of what Simon Whaley had composed As I m a vegetarian I did cringe at a small part of the content but coped by reading it at treble speed Everyone who owns and or loves dogs should read this If you don t love dogs read it anyway just for the laughs Janey Amazon Review This book is not really designed for new owners but if you already have a dog you will recognise much of the behaviour described here and you may well find some useful information and amusing snippets of information which you wish to share The author feels that the real bluffers here are the dogs themselves and his book describes the various ways in which dogs have their owners firmly under control There are a lot of amusing moments and I found myself wanting to read paragraphs aloud to others in order to share the humour There are some very sensible tips on dog ownership in the book as well which the less experienced dog owner may find useful and also some factual information about dogs designed for you to slip into a conversation and impress others with your knowledge Anne Amazon Review The dogs are better than men section OMG yes so true not saying which bits are most relevant for me though Husband has also been looking through this and he had to laugh at the men s section on why dogs are better than women Could cause a big debate and argument but it is true dogs do always listen unlike a man Did try telling husband this but falls on death ears One that would make a great Christmas present for that hard to buy for person just make sure they are a dog lover though If not pretty sure there will be a book in the range that would suit as so many to choose
