He's in love with a poodle named Lulu, a standard poodle. To get romantic with Lulu he'd have to have longer legs or she'd have to cooperate. You figure it out.
Boswell suddenly saw the answers to all his problems and yours and mine, too, in his kibble one day, but he was so hungry he gobbled it up. He tries to remind himself to look before he eats, but his little tummy is so empty.
Each day after his walk he wants his owner, Grossman, to give him just one more treat. He's tried using ESP to communicate with his man, but it just hasn't worked.
So he turned to his best friend: StuffyMan. The two of them have an interesting conversation for the entire, but short book.
First SM tries to get Boswell to remember what word Grossman says before he gives him a treat. I've never seen or heard any of the words Boswell comes up with. In actuality the word is DOWN. SM explains that it means to put your belly on the ground.
In typical twisted terrier thinking, Boswell wonders how this will help him get Lulu.
Reading this book is like taking a trip through a teenage boy's mind: everything seems to be about food, sex and money.
Yes, money. Boswell learned about money from television. He doesn't use the word infomercial, but what dog would know that word. He just knows that money can buy more kibble.
I laughed from the twisted thinking, the reference to Lady Gaga and Boswell's preoccupation with, ahem, well, it's obvious Boswell hasn't been neutered.
There are references to the pressures Grossman is under because he's finishing up on a book about animals. That part is true.
If my own dogs had a conversation it would be quite different. My girls have been spayed.Read more ›
Grossman once again proves that it is good to be different, to stretch the fabric of the traditional, not unlike Joyce, by constructing a platform that not only combines elements of various genres but elevates them all.
Way to go Grossman, keep up the good work.

I have to recommend this to anyone that loves animals. Mr. Grossman has an amazing sense of humor and it has been a joy to read this book.Published on April 20, 2014 by Joan Grossman
I was sorely disappointed with this novel. I expected alot more humor. The dialog was repetitive and dull. The premise was good it could be hillarious bv fell flat. Two paws downPublished on September 10, 2013 by sunnydelite
Random no real plot, I usually really like dog books, and especially those where the dog talks. This one was not worth the e-time to down loadPublished on August 15, 2013 by Coral Gracey
Pretty silly book. Cute concept but could not finish it because it was too boring. Might be cute for a child.Published on August 13, 2013 by Jeanine
I found this book to be boring. A dog who talks with a "magical" toy that is trying to convince Boswell that he is a dog?Published on July 29, 2013 by D. L. Kirkpatrick
All its about is a dog talking to a stuffed toy about his kibble and life. It's not funny. It's not even dry humour.Published on July 10, 2013 by Terry a davis
