Bad to the Bone: Memoir of a Rebel Doggie Blogger by Boe Hoefinger

I'm declaring this the funniest book of 2010. I don't remember the last time I laughed so hard while reading a book. It's the memoir of a dog. His name is Bo and he's a golden retriever/chow chow mix. These are his memoirs from puppyhood in a shelter in New York to adulthood with a loving family consisting of a mom, dad, another dog and a cat with constant constipation in Atlanta Georgia. The first thing I want to share is the inscription inside. I bought this book thru the author's website and Bo was kind enough to leave me a witty comment as well as his pawtograph. Thus, I was chuckling from the get go..

It says, "Some days you're the dog, some days your're the hydrant. I hope you have a dry day!" LMAO! I couldn't have said it better. Truly, those are words of wisdom. I smile everytime I open the book.

Now, back to the book. It has moments are pure laughter. I laughed when Bo thought about questions he would like to ask his vet. 1. Where are my balls? 2. Can I have them back? I laughed when he got a maxi pad wrapped around his bleeding paw. I fell off my chair howling when Bo's dad had to give the cat an enema. There are also some sad bits. There's lots of dead wildlife (Bad Bo!) and there's a story about his mom battling cancer and his confusion over the situation. There's also moments I went EEWWW, namely when Bo eats cat poop. EEEWWW. Full of vitamins or not, that's just gross. LOL

But I just loved it. It's a book I plan on keeping and re reading over and over, especially when I need a laugh or need to boost the joy in my life. 

 Here's a picture of Bo:

  4. Life has not been easy with me after my marriage was broken when my husband filled for a divorced but I thank God for using LORD ZAKUZA who's like a God on Earth to get my broken marriage restored with his powerful spell. I suffered for depression for 6 months but today, I am so happy for getting to know LORD ZAKUZA for his spell has really made me to believe that of a truth spells are real and they work. I adhered to every bit of instructions given to me by LORD ZAKUZA for he promised me that he will make me happy and proud and really, all that happened and my husband came back to me begging me for forgiveness within 48 hours after I got in touch with him and now we are perfectly bonded again for life. I can boldly say to everyone out there that LORD ZAKUZA spells is really the best. I'm forever grateful to him till the end of time.
