The story of eleven canines and the secrets they keep.
I'm a tough egg to crack when it comes to humor. I normally don't read it. So when comedian/actor Steve Martin quoted on the cover, that made me curious enough to check it out.
I was sorely disappointed. I found Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You To Know, a rather generic version of dogs being too human in explaining their own stories. I found myself rather bored with the stereo typing of the different breeds or the conditions they were in and struggled to get through the book.
I also had a difficult time making a personal connection to any of the dogs, except for maybe Sarge, the working German Sheperd who went from job to job trying to do the best job he could. I appreciated the intelligence that was given to the breed and his strong work ethic that I could understand with my own dogs..
All in all we give Things Your Dog Doesn't Want You To Know 5 paws up out of 24. I know others enjoyed it and found it a good read, but it just wasn't my type of dog book.
