It's time to jump out of the handbag and take control of the lead.

From the same kennel as The Dangerous Book for Boys, this hilarious doggy equivalent barks one simple question: What's happened to us?! Designer dog beds? Organic gluten free gourmet doggie biscuits? Spa treatments? Everyone likes to be pampered now and then û but isn't there more to being a dog than wearing a mini cashmere sweater and riding around in a Louis Vuitton handbag?

What about the simple pleasures of life û feeling the wind in your fur, digging up the grass beneath your paws, smelling another dog's bottom? Isn't that part of the great joy of being a dog?

This book is for good dogs, bad dogs, and the millions of people who love them, either way, but owners will no doubt recognize their own lovable pets, and maybe themselves, in these pages. After all, so many people talk to their dogs, they might as well read to them, and learn a little something in the process.

Chapters include: Foul Smells Every Dog Should Roll In, What's Edible?, How to Bury a Bone, Building a Bed out of Laundry, Escaping the Lead, Dogs in Literature, Courageous Dogs in History, Formal Rules of Fetch, Enhancing Your Walk and Amazing Bath Time Escapes.

With more than three quarters of a million copies sold in the UK, The Dangerous Book for Boys tapped into a male desire to recapture a backûtoûbasics sense of fun. Now, a boy's sense of fun is perfectly fine, but a dog's sense of fun is hilarious. Legûhumping, bottomûsniffing and tailûchasing û these are not just the bedrock of dog life; they are the bedrock of comedy.
