Editorial Reviews

Review

Richard Virgilio, The Coaster
“‘Tis the season for snarling and slobbering over politics.  Adding welcome levity to a dog-gone (ouch) important topic is “Red Dog / Blue Dog” the new fair and balanced (honestly) humor book by dog owner and self-proclaimed political junkie Chuck Sambuchino…Guaranteed to get your tongue – and your dog’s tail – wagging, “Red Dog / Blue Dog: When Pooches Get Political” is a fun and funny escape from the rabid political animals everywhere.”

Clarksville TN Online
“What’s not to love about this cleverly written look at our absurdity in the current political scene where bipartisanism has become a thing of the past. With people choosing sides instead of learning to compromise, even the dogs can’t agree on what to do. "

Dr. Nancy Berk, Whine at 9
"Red Dog / Blue Dog cracked me up. I kept turning the pages and laughing and laughing."

Tucson Tails, TucsonCitizen.com
“A picture is worth a thousand words and this is a delightful doggy picture book. It’s the perfect gift for all the dog loving, political junkies on your gift list. Or your best friend who is going to vote for the other guy.”

HauteOrNotPets.com
“Witty and completely partisan, on both sides of the aisle, this little book will have you HOWLING!!! With the holidays fast approaching this is the perfect stocking stuffer for the politico in your social circle!!!”

Tales and Tails blog
“…it’s just a good, clean way of poking fun at the political process… I highly recommend checking it out. It just might help you get through another election year with a smile intact.”

Hilarious! What an innovative way to approach what could be a very dry subject! Can it all come down to such a simple formula?

Dogs put their spin on the election. Funny, clever, and fair and balanced with a red dog and a blue dog on each page spread. The comments are sharp and witty and the dogs are absolutely adorable!!

If you have a dog and follow politics (even a little) this book will make you laugh. The doggie photos are adorable and the captions that describe each dog's own "political opinion" are hilarious. Great gift book for the dog lover in your life, especially if they pay even moderate attention to politics.

OMG, this book is absolutely hilarious!!! I bought it for a friend who both adores dogs and very political-minded, but had to flip through it myself first and then just couldn't stop until I'd gone through the whole book.

Its basically a picture book of different dogs with phrases relating to both Democrats and Republicans. It pokes fun at both parties in equal measure, so you could give it to someone who is part of either party...or to someone who belongs to neither or is Libertarian or Green or whatever. Much of the book has the view of the Democrat dog facing off against the view of the Republican dog on the same topic, both funny and accurate at the same time.

In fact, this book is so oddly accurate at times that is scary, even as its funnier than anything. Or maybe its funny because its scary or scary because its so funny? Honestly, I actually laughed so much in reading this book that I was quite literally crying.

For all your political friends and dog-lovers everywhere!

I may be a bit partial because one of my dog pics is in the book. And a little sad my pup was made into a democrat. LOL. A fun read!

Such a good-humored book about something a lot of people could lighten up about a little more... maybe take from the prospective of man's best friends, the dogs in this book! The book's full of cute canines standing up for what they believe in...well, maybe that's not "exactly" true, but the concept is really clever! Each picture and caption work great together, and it'll give you a good laugh! Red Dog Blue Dog is full of furry adorableness, great for anyone who is an animal lover, esp. a dog lover or someone in politics! Or for yourself!! I was so happy with my purchase of this item, I even purchased others for gifts. Who doesn't love a cute animal photo book with funny captions?!
