Dog Gift Books

Now it doesn’t take a genius to guess that books and dogs are both on my top ten list of things in the world. So when I saw a couple of cute photobooks featuring dogs on Netgalley I snapped them up. One of my very favorite dog books is a little photo gift book, by Roy Blount Jr and Valerie Shaff, the poems and pictures are unbeatable. So I hoped these could come close.

If Only You Knew How Much I Smell You: True Portraits of Dogs This is my favorite, it is an older title, but well worth looking up. The photos are incredible and the poems a perfect compliment.

Hot Guys and Baby Animals First I read Hot Guys and Baby Animals, or rather looked at the very small assortment of photos, and was glad I didn’t pay almost 10$ for 40 or fewer shots of animals and men both moderately cute, with mildly funny captions.

Sorry I Pooped in Your Shoe: (and Other Heartwarming Letters from Doggie) Sorry I Pooped in Your Shoe: (and Other Heartwarming Letters from Doggie) by Jeremy Greenberg. Funny letters are paired with pictures of different dogs. Each letter tries to offer some explanation for some silly dog behavior. They are fun letters and cute pictures, but not terribly memorable.

In conclusion, look for the Blount and Shaff collections and if you can’t find them, check out the Greenberg volume for some smiles and laughs.
