Reviews

"This book is laugh-out-loud funny..."
--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Isn't this a festive title for a holiday book? With tongue firmly planted in cheek, this little picture book has captions to describe what some pets are really thinking. A Multipoo in a dress, wearing chic sunglasses, notes, "She dresses me 'cause it's cheaper than having me spayed." There's a bunny dressed as a skunk with the caption, "Is this your not-so-subtle way of telling me I stink?" A cat in a graduation cap opines, "A college degree in this economy? I might as well slit my wrists."
--Hartford Courant

More than 150 photos of dogs and cats in costumes taken by "people [who] love their pets a little too much." The author, an authority on Bigfoot for Weekly World News, has captioned each. A longhair mutt dressed in red polka-dotted booties and a gingham wrap complains: "You idiot. You've got me dressed as a Charlotte when everyone knows I'm a total Carrie." A shamefaced Yorkie in a tutu demands to know: "So where is this 'Swan Lake, ' and is it deep enough to drown in?" A furry-faced puppy, posed on a tricycle with a bow plastered on its forehead, says: "I can't wait to ride it. Where's the nearest busy intersection?" Really, this one is too cute for words.
--NY Daily News


Praise for the website:
The site posts pictures of domestic animals being made to do things by humans they really, really shouldn't, like getting carted around in a backpack-style contraption, being dressed up as "Woofgang Pup" complete with foofy chef hat and blinged-out shades, or nuzzling up to Kurt Russell's chest.

Featuring miserable-looking pets wearing fake reindeer antlers... snapshots of bulldogs in bunny costumes and cats wearing wigs

--New York Times

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY Popwatch Site Of The Day

"The captions are what really make the blog successful. I actually had to close the browser for fear that I would start laughing too loudly in my otherwise quiet office building."
