However when I show it to some non Jewish people they take it seriously, don't get what's funny and ask Wierd questions like, "are you sure that it's a good idea to give your dog roast beef or chicken if he won't eat his dog food ?"........so then when I say, "What dog food ?", they get nervous and start talking about Science Diet and what their veterinarian said.

This book was way too funny! HOW TO RAISE A JEWISH DOG is a manual that teaches us all how to raise our dogs Jewish. In Chapter 1, the age-old question is brought up:
"Why is a Jewish Dog different from all other dogs? A Jewish dog has three important traits that an ordinary dog doesn't have: an exaggerated sense of his own wonderfulness, an exaggerated sense of his own shortcomings, and an extremely close relationship with his master."
This is a good indication of what the book is like, and for those who can't see the humor in this, then maybe this isn't the book for you. Filled with photographs and charts, it's a how-to for those who want to raise their dogs Jewish. I also discovered after reading this book that I'm definitely a Jewish woman -wanna be. Very scary, how much my behavior matched those depicted in the book. (My own conversations with Alice our cat, as I go on and on asking her, "Why you do this to me? Why? What did I do to you to make you behave this way?" is a clear-cut example of my Jewishness).
I'm definitely recommending this book to those who can appreciate the humor. It certainly made my day.
Fabulous pix too.
Read it if you want to understand your Jewish friends better. If you are Jewish, just cringe in embarrassment and pretend you are in a Woody Allen movie. Nu?
Let me say the books starts out with 4 questions, the first of which is "Why is a Jewish dog different from all other dogs?"
Of course the book covers guilt and shame, ...
