The Dastardly Book for Dogs
Author: Rex and Sparky
Publication Date: 2007
Category: Humour, Parody
Who'll want to read it? Dog Lovers
Point of no return: pg vii "we seem to have lost touch with the greatest joys of canine existence... finding the nastiest odours to roll in, savoring the subtle earthy flavours of a Jimmy Choo slingback - and, of course, mounting bitches."
Classic line: From "Training a New Human" - "Eventually he will learn that he is only in your bed because you - generously - let him stay", pg 181
What's it all about? It's a parody of "The Dangerous Book for Boys". If you are the owner of a dog, especially a naughty, irresistibly gorgeous one you will recognise many of the behaviours and attitudes in this book. You may even find yourself asking did my dog (in my case Lili Marlene the Apricot Terror) merely read this book, or secretly undertake a pseudonym and actually write most of this book. Except the bits that boy dogs obviously wrote. Eerie.
