    1. کتاب کوتاه و خنده داریه در مورد داستان هایی جالبی که صاحبین سگ ها، تا حالا باهاش روبرو شدن. خودنش سریعه و خنده دار. اگه خودتون صاحب سگ باشین واقعا درک میکنین که قضیه چیه و چقدر بعضی جاهای این کتاب خنده داره. عشق بین انسان و حیوان رو هم خیلی خوب بیان میکنه.And aren't our emotions what make it a joy - [...]

    2. I love dogs.No, I REALLY dogs!But . . . even I can get a little weary of endless stories about all the nifty things someone's little poopsie-whoopsie does on a daily basis. That's not to say this is a bad book; just that, even for dog lovers, it can get a little . . . tiresome. Also, since the subtitle mentions that these are tales by America's favorite humorists, well, I expected to laugh more. A lot more.There were some funny lines. Like this one by Alec Mapa:If you live a good life, you get t [...]

    3. If you love dogs, you should read this book. If you're thinking of getting a dog, you should read this book. It will either confirm that a dog will be the best thing that ever happened to you, or send you screaming in the other direction. As the title suggests, this is a series of stories about different writers and their dogs. While they are very different in many ways, they all have the same theme: dogs give love unconditionally, and you will forgive a dog anything (including eating really exp [...]

    4. When I saw that was giving away a copy of Wade Rouse’s new book, I couldn’t hit the enter giveaway button fast enough. I knew he had a book about dogs coming out and though I really hadn’t planned on getting it because I’m more of a cat person, I figured if I get it for free, that’d be great because I love Rouse’s writing.My squeal of delight at seeing I’d won the book quickly faded and became a “Whaaaa?” because I didn’t read the description well enough (or at all) and didn [...]

    5. Author Wade Rouse is billed on the cover of this book as a “critically acclaimed memoirist,” and I have to admit my ignorance because, not only had I never heard of Wade Rouse, I had also never heard of a “memoirist.” Guess I need to get out more! It’s all Relative, another book by Mr. Rouse, has a familiar ring to it, so I’m thinking that this was probably an author that I meant to read, maybe put on my to-read later list, or simply made a note to self to read, then didn’t get aro [...]

    6. This is a Reading Good Books review.* In compliance with FTC guidelines, it should be noted that I received the book for free through First Reads.Imagine me saying this in a sing-song voice: “I looooove it!!!”From the hilariously sweet foreword from Chelsea Handler’s dog, Chunk, to the very last essay, this anthology put a smile on my face at every page turn. This book has twenty essays from twenty different writers/dog owners. TWENTY tales that will definitely warm your heart, brighten u [...]

    7. If Jen Lancaster is talking about a book on her Facebook page, you know it has to be good, especially if she contributed to it. But wait it gets better. Among the other twenty contributors to this anthology include Sarah Pekkanen, Jenny Gardiner, Jane Green, Caprice Crane, and Allie Larkin…can we say Chick Lit Central? By the way hop on over and do check us out at chicklitcentraltheblogspoSummary: An anthology of bark-out-loud original essays about dogs from some of today's most popular writer [...]

    8. This was a very funny book about dog ownership. All the authors are funny, and give their stories about either dogs they own now, or dogs they've owned in the past. Some parts made me laugh out loud. More often than not, the dog is misbehaved. More often then not, the owners say they are going to be strict dog owners, and end up letting the dog run their life. Even though this is a funny collection, some stories are a bit sad, as they involve a dog being put down or rescuing a dog from an abusiv [...]

    9. This is an anthology about the relationships between dogs and their people. There are a lot of great essays in here (as naturally there would be, when there are contributions by people like Jane Green, Sarah Pekkanen, W. Bruce Cameron and Jen Lancaster) and I would be hard-pressed to point to one and say, "That one wasn't good."They were all sweet and most of them were funny. I'll also admit that almost every essay had at least one moment where I'd be like, "Yes. That's me."The one that really m [...]

    10. If you are looking for some warm and fuzzy dog stories to read to your kids or grandkids, you should turn to James Herriot’s excellent tales for their bedtime agenda. If, on the other hand, you want to read some funny and sometimes touching dog stories on an adult level, look no further than this anthology, I’m Not the Biggest Bitch in This Relationship. Sometimes down-to-earth, and at other times, just plain earthy, you will no doubt enjoy these tales of dog verses master, reveling in the f [...]

    11. I was very excited when I first learned about this book. I love many of the authors who contributed, however the book as a whole did not grab me. Each story was very touching, some made me laugh and a few brought tears to my eyes. It was very hard to get drawn in and not want to put the book down. I think for me a lot of it was that the book is a bunch of short stories and there is no flow to it. I would recommend this to any pet lover and will go back and read a few of the stories later when I [...]

    12. like with all short story books for me, I end up liking some, and others not so much. Of course I picked this up because of the dog theme and love that Wade Rouse is donating proceeds to USHS. But I also picked it up because I love Wade Rouse and wanted to see what he'd do with this. Here's hoping Wade is busy writing another memoir or book of his own - and if you haven't read his stuff - what are you waiting for?

    13. So-so. As with a lot of anthologies, some essays were better than others. I found that I was forcing myself to try to read them all, so I gave up and just read bits and pieces.

    14. An enjoyable read for dog owners. I think Cesar Millan should get some royalties because his name was dropped several times in this book. ;)

    15. I absolutely LOVED this book!!! I am a dog lover and have had several breeds and mixes of woman's best friend. These essays made me miss some of my late great fur babies and others made me upset by owners who had to give them up. This book is a true treasure for any canine lover.

    16. This book is a wonderful collection of stories about what life is really like when you own a dog. Most of the stories are humorous but all of them pull on your heartstrings. A must read for dog owners or those who are thinking about getting a dog.Love it and I hope there are more!

    17. Sweet and sassy and full of love. For dog owners and lovers only. Admittedly I skimmed past some essays - as I tend to do with compilations (some authors just don't speak to me like others).

    18. Funny, heartwarming, and REAL, these stories are something that every dog owner can relate to. At one point, I may even have had a tear in my eye.

    19. Some of the stories in here made me laugh so hard that I had tears streaming from my eyes. I also snort laughed at some of the essays. I highly recommend this.

    20. I received this book for free through Giveaways. I have always had pets and can appreciate the love, laughter and sometimes frustration that come with these charming family members. This book has a funny collection of stories about dogs. Each one is humorous, although some are more poignant than others. There were so many instances that I totally connected with while reading this book. Even though I must admit that I'm more of a cat person, I laughed out loud many times (probably startling the [...]

    21. I am a dog person, through and through. I love dogs and truly believe that they are man's best friend. Obviously, this book was right up my alley. With essays composed by many famous humorists, all focusing on their dogs, this was something that I could easily relate to. All of the essays were great and each showed the important role that pets play in our lives. The essays cover a wide range of topics, from picking out your dog to having to put your dog to sleep. Some stories are funny and had m [...]

    22. Normally I am not a short-story or essay collection kind of reader. I can never get into a short story because right as I'm starting to like it, POOF it is over and done with. But when I read about Jane Green and Jen Lancaster contributing my ears perked up a bit. Beth Kendrick, Beth Harbison, Caprice Crane - have I died and gone to favorite author heaven?! Reading this made my heart swell and made me want to run out, buy a farm and adopt any and every dog I can find at the shelters. There were [...]

    23. As advertised, stories in this collection are funny, humorous and heartwarming. Well, I don't find them such. With the exception of several, most of this stories are about characters who are self-centered, more or less neurotic, and being a dog owners. I am a dog owner myself to the double (add a cat to that), and if I know a thing about dog ownership is that you should treat your dogs with benevolence and kalmness. Also as advertised, Wade Rouse has gathered some of America's best known humoris [...]

    24. I think that anyone who was ever loved a dog will enjoy this book. I found something to relate to in every single story, and I had a blast reading this. Each story included some dog characteristic that was prevalent in either the three dogs I have lost in life, or the two dogs I currently have, and even the sad stories made me laugh. I think W. Bruce Cameron's story was my favorite though - the day in the life of a dog. I laughed throughout that entire chapter, because it is just so accurate and [...]

    25. I'm Not the Biggest Bitch in This Relationship is a must read for all dog lovers. Each tale is remarkably unique, although the common thread of unconditional love for "man's best friend" is clear. While the voices and dialects may change, the compassion and gratitude for these four-legged creatures remains steadfast. This book is packed with stories that are interesting, hilarious, familiar and sometimes, sweetly sad. I enjoyed every paragraph in the is book, enjoying many of my favorite writers [...]

    26. This littel gem came recommended to me via Facebook, with the added incentive that 10% of the profits will be donated to the Humane Society of the United States by editor Wayne Rouse. This is a collection of real life dog stories by an eclectic group of writers and humorists like Rita Mae Brown and Jane Green, Bob Smith and Chunk, Chelsea Handler's dog. Among these stories is the typical my-dog-was-a-wretch-but-I-loved-him/her-anyway genre, but some, like Rita Mae Brown's heart-wrenchingly elega [...]

    27. I love dogs and reading stories about dogs!This is a collection of 21 stories from dog owners about their life with their dogs. There was a foreword by Chelsea Handler's dog, Chunk, and the authors included Jen Lancaster, Rita Mae Brown, Laurie Notaro, Jane Green, Beth Harbison and W. Bruce Cameron (there is a bio on each at the end of the book). Some of the stories were funny and entertaining some not so much (I wasn't enjoying their writing style).All in all, it was a fun read.Blog review pos [...]
