What did I think?
I am beyond in love with this book. I happened to receive it on a day that i was feeling a little down, and this picked me right up.  I often find myself guessing what my dogs are really thinking, and I love when i find a picture of them, with a certain funny expression on their cute little faces. I read each of the 192 pages and love each one. This book is now in an easy access spot of my bookshelve, where I can pull it out anytime I need a good laugh. (Which might be daily in the next two weeks, Finals=Yuck!)

  13. One of my cat's name is Patty. She is 17, and getting a little senile. Her favorite trick is to try to get me out of bed at 4 in the morning to feed her. She will run her paw gently around my face, over my mouth, stick her paw in my ear, and then if that doesn't work, she will sit on my chest and cry until I wake up.

  16. I would LOVE to own a dog, but my husband just doesn't want one. :-(

    I adore terriers and shit-tzus, but would definitely get a rescue.

  17. When our dog wants a treat, she will run through her repertoire of tricks without being asked: sit, shake, lie down, roll over, etc. It's funny to watch her; we're sure she's thinking "ONE of these must work!"

  34. I have an older cat, Manny we rescued from the shelter. He had been adopted and brought back 8 times! We brought him home and he's the quietest and sweetest cat. We're going to be getting a new kitten as well. Once he's weaned. Can't wait to add a dog to the mix, but it will have to be after the baby gets a little older.

  38. I have a rescued malamute named nanock.The police ordered her owners who were animal hoarders to get rid of all their animals. When I got her 5 months ago she weighed 35 pounds, wasn't housebroke, and not trained at all. She has since put on almost 40 pounds grown at least 5 inches, and is totally housebroke, (we are still working on the other things.)

  57. It was potty time and I was going to let our two dogs out (Husky and Pit Bull). The Door was open but the glass storm door was still shut. They run and don't notice the door and the Husky slams right into the glass. Poor guy.

  58. My last pet was a Maine Coone cat who ruled the home. He came home in my Dad's fireman boot. He liked to eat and had a whole bevy of names including Jerold. His favorite thing at night was to lay on the windowsills and "catch" anything going on outside. Also, because he wanted company, he would drop bobby pins on the dresser until my sister or I got up. Sometimes, he licked faces but mostly he tormented the dog, Barney, who tried to herd him. Oh he was surprised a few times by water still in the tub, when drinking from a plastic mug, and came out looking skinny and bedraggled. Ping pong balls and chasing flashlight kept him in pouncing shape.
