Book ~ "Dog Shaming" (2013) Pascale Lemire

From Goodreads ~ Based on the runaway web phenomenon, Dog Shaming features the most hilarious, most shameful, and never-before-seen doggie misdeeds. 

Our dogs are our best friends. They are always happy to see us. They comfort us in our times of need. They also eat our shoes, stain our carpets, and embarrass us in front of our guests. 

Dog owners everywhere have found their outlet in dogshaming.com, where they can confess their dogs’ biggest (and often grossest!) sins, which turn out to be recognizably universal - complete with snapshots of ridiculously cute but shamed pups who don’t seem capable of humping humans, pooping on pillows, or snagging steak straight from a grill. So share in the shaming and laugh through your frustration as Dog Shaming reminds us that unconditional love goes both ways.

I've been checking out Dogshaming.com on a regular basis for a couple years ... the pictures are hilarious!

Dog Shaming started one night when the author and her boyfriend, Mike, were in bed reading on their tablets when they heard chewing coming from under the bed. Mike reached out and pulled Beau (their rescue wiener dog) out from under the bed. They realized he'd been chewing on Mike's underwear. They burst out laughing and snapped a picture with a sign beside him and she posted it to her blog. 


Within 24 hours, people had blogged and reblogged the picture over and over.  Then other dog owners started sending her pictures of their own dogs' shames, which she posted.

This book is a compilation of pictures of dogs and their shames.  They are all funny and here are some samples ...

If you are a dog lover, you should check it out!  It's a quick but funny read.
