Bad habits, bad attitudes, bad breath. With a weakness for bad outfits and having bad hair days. Dogs are no less bad than cats, so it was only a matter of time before, emboldened by the runaway success of Bad Cat
, the #1 New York Times
bestseller with 487,000 copies in print, dogs would be begging for the chance to speak out. Dogs like: Trixie
, the puppy eating her own foot, who says: “If you’re wondering, it tastes like chicken.” Or the aging Sam
, eyes popping out of his head and granny glasses askew: “Sweet mother of mercy—the Viagra’s working!” Or Tasia
, a big mutt forced to wear little Santa hats, who snarls: “ I’d like to roast your chestnuts on an open fire.” There’s Dallas
the surly yoga instructor. The old letch Samson
, half-mastiff and half-slobber. Barley
of the Order of the Vested Shih Tzus. Devil-worshipping Penny
. Friend of sailors Miz Skeeter Bug
. And Charlie
, whose words should be heeded by every owner who thinks it’s cute to dress up the family pet: “Listen to me! I am not a bird. I am not a plane. I’m just your dog, Charlie.” In the same format as Bad Cat
, with 244 truly funny photographs (including a number of group portraits), plus name, age, hobby, and candid quote.
From the Back Cover
Man's best friend? Think again. Behind those loving eyes and wagging tail lurks a very different dog. A dog with an edge. A dog with a dark side. A bad
dog. Here, in all their glory, are hundreds of bad dogs, with bad tempers and bad breath.
Smart-asses, stoners, thugs, cranks, lechers, hellions—makes you wonder what your pet's really burying in the backyard.
