Book ~ "Not Your Mother's Book ... On Dogs" (2012) Dahlynn McKowen, Ken McKowen and Kathleene Baker

From Goodreads ~ Who let the dogs out?!

Watch out! The dogs are loose and in rare form in this very funny and endearing anthology about our canine friends.

We are dog people. While some many think we’re a bit off our rockers—especially them cat people—we don’t give a hoot. Our fur kids are our babies, our children. They are our trusted companions. They ask for nothing in return. They shower us with their loyalty and love. Inside, you’ll read puppy-dog antics and silly-canine adventures, with a surprise or two thrown in, all of which will make you very happy the dogs are running free on the pages of this wonderful book.

Not Your Mother’s Book (NYMB) is a new anthology for a new century. Series creators Dahlynn and Ken McKowen spent 10 years developing titles for the world’s bestselling anthology series [Chicken Soup for the Soul] prior to launching NYMB. But their series is very different; NYMB books are contemporary, fun and even daring! No sad, sappy or death and dying stories—EVER!

I love dogs ... and I love love love stories about dogs.  This is a fun book of 57 short and snappy stories by various authors about dogs. The chapter topics were:
  • Puppy Love 
  • Every Dog Has Its Day 
  • Companions Like None Other 
  • Unleashed! 
  • Dog Treats 
  • In the Doghouse
I enjoyed most of the stories ... they were cute and heartwarming.  We haven't had a dog in almost two years and reading these stories made me miss having one.  Dog (and animal) lovers will love this book!

Not Your Mother’s Book ... On Dogs is the third book in the series. There are more than 30 new and funny NYMB titles under development and all need stories from YOU! Submission guidelines at www.PublishingSyndicate.com.

I received a copy of this ebook at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
