Isn't this a festive title for a holiday book? With tongue firmly planted in cheek, this little picture book has captions to describe what some pets are really thinking. A Multipoo in a dress, wearing chic sunglasses, notes, "She dresses me 'cause it's cheaper than having me spayed." There's a bunny dressed as a skunk with the caption, "Is this your not-so-subtle way of telling me I stink?" A cat in a graduation cap opines, "A college degree in this economy? I might as well slit my wrists."
More than 150 photos of dogs and cats in costumes taken by "people [who] love their pets a little too much." The author, an authority on Bigfoot for Weekly World News, has captioned each. A longhair mutt dressed in red polka-dotted booties and a gingham wrap complains: "You idiot. You've got me dressed as a Charlotte when everyone knows I'm a total Carrie." A shamefaced Yorkie in a tutu demands to know: "So where is this 'Swan Lake,' and is it deep enough to drown in?" A furry-faced puppy, posed on a tricycle with a bow plastered on its forehead, says: "I can't wait to ride it. Where's the nearest busy intersection?" Really, this one is too cute for words.

Praise for the website:
The site posts pictures of domestic animals being made to do things by humans they really, really shouldn't, like getting carted around in a backpack-style contraption, being dressed up as "Woofgang Pup" complete with foofy chef hat and blinged-out shades, or nuzzling up to Kurt Russell's chest.
Featuring miserable-looking pets wearing fake reindeer antlers... snapshots of bulldogs in bunny costumes and cats wearing wigs

"The captions are what really make the blog successful. I actually had to close the browser for fear that I would start laughing too loudly in my otherwise quiet office building."

When I received it and read it, I changed my mind. It's just not that funny and I kept it myself to
put in a garage sale.

There are definitely funny photos in this book, but there are many that aren't. As a designer myself, I found this book very sloppy. It was not what I was expecting. Read morePublished on January 15, 2013 by Brie
Meh. Not funny. Just a bunch of pictures of pets wearing hideous costumes that must have been hot and uncomfortable; some animals even had their fur dyed, which I think is wrong. Read morePublished on August 21, 2012 by Meaghan

Cute, but I never laughed out loud. Some of the pictures are funny, but the commentary could use some work. Sadly, just a fun shelf book.Published on December 7, 2011 by Allison M. Paul
