My Thoughts on the BookI do like dogs (though I own cats) and this book was strewn full of dogs! I had not really known much about the I Has a Hotdog website so when I received this book, I did not know exactly what to expect.

This book is full of  pictures of dogs with funny captions....that is the main concept. While it is definitely not going to increase your IQ, I will say that it will provide you with some fun entertainment through the clean humor that it provides.

The book is very quick read but may take you a bit longer if you have not seen books like these before. Why do I say this? One of the things that people either love or hate about the way that the website and book is written is that it is not written grammatically correct. So just as the name infers, you will find funny quotes such as: They said walk da hooman... Neva anything bout bringing em bak. I know that when J-Mom read this (being an elementary teach by training), she did not really like the way the book was set up for this reason. I can set that aside (though at times, I did have to go back a second time to make sure I read it right).

If this book sounds like something that you would like in your own library, you can find it on Amazon!
