Book Description

A dog (Jack) and his person (The Tall Guy) decide to write a book, mostly about the dog. But don't worry, no dogs die at the end of THIS book! (Unlike some other books about yellow Labs)

Aren't you tired of reading books about vampires? Wouldn't a book about a zombie puppy be more interesting? Yeah, I thought so too. I guess I'll have to work on that for the next book. In the meantime, here's a book about a dog named Jack.

I just purchased my Kindle a few days ago and spent a good deal of time downloading a lot of content I thought that I would like to read. Today I read this entire little book while on a road trip. It was funny - I laughed out loud a few times - and fun. I also liked the pictures the author included to really give us a glimpse into Jack's life. It was pretty hilarious to read the imaginary banter between the author and his dog. And, hooray - Jack, as promised, does NOT die in this book. I actually didn't want this story to end, but was pleasantly surprised to find that when it did, I could hop online and visit the blog about Jack and his continued adventures at [...] Definitely worth the download!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a funny animal book May 10, 2011
By Lucy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Let me first establish that I do not own a dog and do not usually read books about dogs.. I stopped reading books about animals years ago because too many of them end with the animal dying. Therefore, I really like the title of the book. The book is funny and thought provoking. I enjoyed pretending that a dog can talk and getting the dog's perspective on the TG. I hope this is the beginning of a series of humor books by Ray Braswell and Jack, of course.

I finished my last ebook on Sunday and had downloaded a number of samples to check out - this one being one of them. The sample had me rolling on the floor laughing my head off, and I thought "If the rest of the book is like this, I'm really going to enjoy it!" - so I bought it - and sadly, I didn't.
I love dogs, and I love stories about them. I just didn't enjoy Jack's independent narrations - and there are a lot of them. I enjoyed the ones he did WITH Tall Guy, and I enjoyed the ones Tall Guy did on his own, but not the ones he did on his own. I wish the sample had included a section or two written just by Jack so I would have known what to expect. So sorry. I hate to give negative reviews, but I just didn't enjoy this book as much as everyone else so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT April 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I too have stopped reading books about animals beause so many die at the end. I even check the ending of books that have animal characters to see if they survive before finishing the book. TAKE Notice authors, we animal lovers want by books that are good but that the animal doesn't have to die to make a statement!!!!!

I enjoyed hearing from Jack--the dog! I love first person-or shall I say first dog--perspective. I share my life with a Black Lab and a Golden Retriever who speak to me on a regular basis. And, yes, it is nice to read an animal book that doesn't end sadly!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely loved it! July 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is exactly what it promises to be. Much of it told from the dog's (Jack's) perspective, it captures the joyfulness that Labradors often have. I recognized a lot of my own dogs' behaviors - and they're not even Labs. The first night I started reading this, I was laughing my head off in bed at well past midnight. If you're a real dog-person, you'll get it. I've already recommended this to friends and will continue to do so. It's just an enjoyable, humorous, quick read - perfect for settling down with after a weary workday to put you in a lighter mood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack is Adorable . . . August 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love Jack the dog, he's adorable. (Tall Guy, I'm sure you are adorable, too, give Jack a big hug from us.) I have three big, slobbery, spoiled, dorky dogs. I've had had dogs all my life. They make me laugh. Jack made me laugh, too. After reading the chapter about etiquette at the dog park, I would look at my dogs and think, uh no, that's not what they are thinking. Bark, scratch, sniff, bark some more (at what? I can't see anything), chase the cat around the table, rub fur on the carpet, jump on guests, play tug of war with my sock, steal my sandwich then listen to me swear. Not - etiquette. My dogs could care less about etiquette. So I give Jack kudos for that, at least he was THINKING about it. Now if he really applied it is another matter . . .

It's a funny book about a cute dog, and I think a lot of people will get a kick out of it.
