Book Description

My dog sends me texts. Yeah. It’s weird.

When October Jones figured out he could send text messages to himself on his mobile phone, he naturally decided that the best use of this discovery was to send passive-aggressive messages to himself under the guise of his bulldog. And so the exasperating, slightly delusional, and utterly endearing Dog and his alter-ego BatDog were born.

Texts from Dog features Dog’s attempts to keep the neighborhood safe from the likes of Mr. Postman and his arch-nemesis Cat-Cat—he has managed to only smash three TVs and a patio door in the process. And in between crime fighting sprees and run-ins with the squirrel mafia, there are romantic interludes with pillows, fetch sessions gone terribly awry, and the abusive banter only a bromance between man and his text-savvy dog can spawn.

For those of us who have ever had a conversation with a pet in our heads, Texts from Dog will make you laugh out loud and perhaps even make you think twice about leaving your pet home alone for the day.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Texts From Dog is the best tumblr about text messages from a dog ever. And I mean it.’
--Dave Stopera (Buzzfeed.com)

About the Author

October Jones was born and raised in Birmingham, England, where, ironically, he spent most of his childhood terrified of dogs. He has recently worked on animation projects for the BBC, as well as doing music videos for UK comedy band The Amateur Transplants.
 
Dog is the runt of a five-puppy litter born on a farm in Wales.  He was the last to be sold, and arrived in Birmingham slighted and grouchy. He spends most of his time napping, snacking, trying to figure out who the second dog in the bedroom mirror is, and, of course, texting.

5.0 out of 5 stars funniest thing ever November 8, 2012
By Ramya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Texts from Dog on Facebook for sometime. As soon as I realised a book was out, I grabbed it on Kindle. Almost all of them are new, (not seen on the FB page) though I did see some repeats. Its hilarious as always but too short to justify a $13 price tag!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two WOOFs Up! November 7, 2012
By Joey
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you've read the Text from Dog Blog posts or liked him on Facebook - you're going to love this book. This, although the American Version, is distinctly British and is hilarious from the first page - the 'Introdogtion' right through to the end. Bonus drawings of Dog in various situations illustrate the texts they go with and each page has two text screens on each. (Unless one or more have been replaced with an illustration) So many Dog owners, myself included, will see their own dog in Dog's view of the world and the author's insight into the Canine Experience leaves one wondering if he isn't part Dog himself!

As someone who is always pretending the dogs can talk, this book made me laugh out loud at quite a few spots. Definitely a must read for dog lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stupidly funny February 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You're reading along and it's funny and all but you're just chuckling and THEN, you hit a ridiculously funny text and suddenly it's one of the funniest little books you've ever read. I gave it as a christmas present to someone in my house because I secretly wanted to read it too. A great gift for the discerning dog owner whose pet texts him at work :-)

We are the weirdos that imagine what our dogs would say if they could talk, and this just hits it perfectly. The site is hilarious, and the book is just more hilarity!
