Even better than Awkward Family Photos, great coffee table book, too,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Awkward Family Pet Photos (Paperback)
Even the most " humor challenged" people I know can't keep from laughing as they look through this one. We keep a copy on our coffee table and somehow it manages to "migrate" to the night stands in guests' bedrooms or other areas of the house....even if they aren't animal lovers. The book is proof that people CAN be just as smitten with their pets as with any person they know. And the crazy photos attest to that.
This is the kind of book that can liven up somber family gatherings or break the ice at parties. The kind of book where you can look at just one page at random - but I dare you to stop after looking at any one page. Impossible. To. Do.
Some of the photos (an armful of chihuahuas) are almost too cute for words while others are just too...well...strange.....to seem believable...and also laugh out loud funny. Pity the poor guy whose cat went ballistic during a photo shoot and the picture that documented the whole thing. Or just laugh at him. Maybe he even submitted the photo himself...if the cat didn't.
The photos show both people and their pets at their craziest...and often it is the people who appear totally nutty while their beloved pets (finally) get their just dues. There are some "behind the photo" explanations here and there,adding to the hilarity. From cats to pot-bellied pigs, there are all sorts of pets here, even a fair smattering of lizards, birds, and snakes. All steal the show. If you liked Awkward Family Photos you should add this to your collection.

Thanks, Carol...glad you liked the review and the book ought to be a hit as a holiday gift. I'm thinking of ordering extras as well since it seems to be a staple in our guest room. At least we know (I think) why our guests are giggling or even laughing out loud.
