Summary: Let's get this clear right away: I'm a dog. I'm 1'10" and weigh 63 lbs, and although I'm a mutt on the outside, I'm a purebred on the inside. My good nature comes from the Golden Retriever side of the family, while my stubbornness is clearly from my Chowchow bloodlines. I've got Rastafarian ears, a black tongue for licking, and paws that should be on a dog twice my size.

*Summary from Goodreads
My Review: This book (BTTB) was such a fun experience to read! If there was someone in the room with me while I was reading it I would yell out quotes from the book (annoying them out of the room). Bo has created a work of art that reaches for your funny bone and grabs ahold. BTTB is the story of a dog who was adopted out of revenge and the ups and downs of his life. He tells us what it was like living in the shelter, being adopted, living with a cat, and growing old. I learned that dogs like to humiliate their humans for no reason other than that. Bo liked to punish his "parents" when they did something he didn't like such as taking the cat away. This dog was a master at getting more than just table scraps and he knew just when to cock his head. BTTB was a light, funny read that had me wondering just how much dogs (and a cat named Moose) are capable of.
