Review

"Bogart is a fabulous character. While I never forgot he was a dog--which is a good thing--I found him relatable in ways I hadn't expected. This was a very fresh, compelling, and fun story." - Josi S. Kilpack, Author of The Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery series

From the Author

Thank you for considering my novel, Memoirs of a Bad Dog. I hope that this story will make you laugh, cry, and help you see some of the real problems we have in the world with animal abuse and cruelty. As a word of caution, this book is not for young readers. It was written for adults. There are scenes that were difficult to write, and if I've done what I intended to do, will be difficult to read. One of the best parts of writing the story from Bogart's perspective was that it allowed me to relate to him in a way that was more intimate than a third-person narration would have--it humanized him--and I hope that helps those who read it show increased love to their pets.

More About the Author

I think Carl Barks was the most brilliant storyteller of the century, and his greatest contribution to literature was Uncle Scrooge. I like to eat Chips Ahoy cookies dipped in milk--I can polish off an entire package in one sitting--and I like the chunky milk as a chaser. I think the person who invented the designated hitter should be hung by his armpit hair. I have a low tolerance for stupidity, including my own, but I pretend that it doesn't bother me. I want a tattoo of a quill pen under my wedding band. I've always fancied myself as an amazing lover, but I think the reality is that I'm sadly mediocre. I struggle with narcissism and self-loathing. I don't like to disclose my political leanings because they make me unpopular in my community. I like people with petty vices. I like the smell of my dog when she is wet. I don't smile as much as I used to, but it is more sincere now. If pride is a sin, my children are condemning me to hell. Thanks for stopping by.

TISSUE ALERT!!! This book deals with a lot of animal abuse and death. I thought it was going to be a light hearted read, but it's not! Unless you want to read about lost pets, poorly treated lost pets in shelters and dog fighting rings, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this book,

I just finished reading Memoir's of a Bad Dog. I'm not much good at writing reviews, but I absolutely loved this book. The author did an excellent job of writing from the perspective of a dog. The book brought up all sorts of emotions for me, happiness, sadness, joy, anger....you name it. I literally laughed out loud in places and was left in tears in others. I would definately recommend this book to everyone I know. I will be looking out for more by this author in the future, from what I can find online this appears to be his only work at the moment.

I picked this up during a freebie promotion but it is well worth the $3.99 it is priced at currently.

I might add that this is one of the few Kindle books I have picked up as a freebie that appears to have been expertly edited. I only found one typo in the entire book, that's pretty much unheard of for a freebie these days.

I was a little leary of clicking on the book since at the time I did, 4 out of the 5 reviews posted were posted by people with this one and only review. That normally seems to be a red flag that the author's friends and family were recruited to post them. I'm glad I took a chance because the book really does deserve the 5 star ratings.

Books with animal narrators are growing in popularity these days, and I'm a great fan of the fun found from seeing life from a dog's prospective!! This Is one of the best ones I've read!!

Curtis Moser has created an hilarious, philosophical, thoroughly
'dog' narrator in Bogart, the long eared hound dog! Have you ever considered that your dog might consider that the beautiful dog run you created for your favorite dog, may be called 'the jail' by your loving 'best friend'?

Bogart just wants to be considered a 'good dog' but as he goes through life, he finds that he honestly must consider himself a 'bad dog'. It's not just that he pees on the carpet because it's soft and doesn't leave a puddle. It surely isn't because he creatively saves pork chops and other treats hidden in and under furniture for 'later times of need'. But when he gets Ginger , his best girl 'dog friend' to unhook his latch closing him into his 'jail' and they wander off for an adventure, he definitely goes into the 'bad dog' category!

While chasing a cow, Bogart causes his owner's father to die in a car crash. Because he's so sorry, he wants to sooth his owner's sadness in some way, and perhaps get some repentance and forgiveness at the same time. Maybe getting his owner's Dad's Red Socks hat back will help. After all, they did spend hours yelling about that red sock while looking at the tiny people running around in that little black box in their house.

Thus begins an adventure told through Bogart's eyes that will make you laugh, cry, and perhaps ponder your own life. You'll clap your paws with joy at times. You'll definitely become jealous of those beautiful long ears. You'll cheer when Bogart finally decides that Snowball, the cat, is actually pretty smart! But mostly, you'll be thrilled that you found and read this tremendous first book from Curtis Moser!!

This book is a great read! The author has you laughing and crying! The 1st person perspective with a little attitude is wonderful. I love the interpretation of a dog's behavior. Definitely worth buying!

It took me some time to get through this book and several times almost gave up on it. I purchased the book after reading other reviews about it being funny but I didn't read anything funny in this book at all especially if you are an animal lover.

Bogart is a basset hound who thinks he's a bad dog and is terrified this means he is going to be doomed to doggy Hell. He has a plan, though, to keep that horrible fate from happening: he'll do some good deeds to help repair his karma. Unfortunately for Bogart, things never seem to work out as planned.

Told from Bogart's point-of-view, you get to meet his human Swifty, his girlfriend Ginger, and a cast of other characters, both human and critter as he tries his best to mend his ways while lusting after bacon and hot dogs.

Please note, this is NOT a children's book and is not meant to be read to children. Despite the book's premise and its characters, there are scenes that are definitely unsuitable for children.

It is an endearing, poignant, and heartwarming story that will make you laugh, chuckle, nod your head in agreement at times, and even cause a lump to form in your throat and tears in your eyes. This book covers all of the bases, including a bittersweet love story. Highly recommended.

I'm not sure what I expected when I started this seemingly lighthearted book, but got shocked right near the beginning of what is really a road trip with a cast of nice and not so nice characters thrown in. I loved the bassett's view of his body;his long gorgeous ears, his incredible nose, his fat wrinkles. His own unique way of counting is very funny.Weaving his friends (and newly made friends)in and out of the story was very much like human interaction.I also loved how he finally was able to conclude whether he was a good or bad dog. I believe Mr. Mosher has a strong dislike of abuse to animals, in this case dogs, and he has written a wonderfully readable book to showcase this particular human villiany. Good job!
