PEOPLE LOVE THEIR PETS.

SOME PEOPLE LOVE THEIR PETS
A LITTLE TOO MUCH.


Who could blame Mr. Whiskers for trying to high-dive from a penthouse window or Fluffy for crawling into a washing machine? After being dressed up for Halloween, married off in elaborate weddings, toted everywhere in baby backpacks, or just plain coddled within an inch of their sanity by obsessively doti

What is Fluffy thinking when he’s wrestled into a frilly costume and photographed? Is it “Mama thinks I’m speshul” or “I wanna head for the nearest open window”? This humorous book attempts to answer that question with admittedly adorable critters and text explaining their bitter innermost thoughts.

And thus we have a pooch adorned in a turquoise sweater with matching bow and sunglasses: “She dresses me like this ‘cause it’s cheaper than getting me spayed.” Or how about a undersized dog in a lob

Pets who want to kill themselves: Featuring over 150 suicidal pets written by Duncan Birmingham is a fun little read. I received this book as a Christmas present and found the funny little stories to be very entertaining.

I really enjoy the cat and dog picture collection books but this one - not so much. Some of the pictures included were of poor quality and the captions not really funny. Like the title says - suicidal pets - so think what a suicidal pet would say ??? Anyway, not my cuppa. But if we all liked the same thing ...

Definitely NOT for the kiddies.

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. Even the snarky captions weren't funny. I didn't even chuckle.

An excellent new angle to the "Stuff on My Pet"-type books. This is mostly animals in costume, looking as thrilled as you would expect. Wow, the lengths to which humans will go! I have to admit, though -- I'm dying to put my kitty in a baby backpack and go for a hike!

This is book of photos of poor pets dressed in ridiculous outfits and captions of what they might be thinking that are absolutely hilarious at times. My favorite is a poor little dog standing beside a man in a kilt saying Don't look up...Don't look up....

A cute, quick read for any pet-lover. It's more about the photos than anything else, so it's a great coffee table book. I'd recommend it for a laugh!

A bit too disturbing. Language and sexual references make it inappropriate for teens.
