The subtitle: "Hilarious, heartwarming tales about man's best friend from America's favorite humorists"
Rouse allowed a whole bunch of writers to tell any kind of dog story they wanted - and the resulting tales are a mixed bag: about dog training, childhood dogs, current dog-mates, puppy-sitting, naming dogs, and much, much more.
Every story is good. Really, I was surprised - there's not a weak link in the chain. While reading, I found myself flipping back and forth to read each writers's bio before I read their story, to see if they were comedians, novelists, magazine writers - it's a nice mix of names you know and new faces to learn.
