Dogs aren't exactly shy when it comes to expressing their feelings. They do everything we humans are afraid to: dogs are ecstatic and boisterous, tactless, openly enthusiastic, take delight in rolling in disgusting things, sleep when they're tired, and don't care if you snore. Dogs teach us that joy is a way of life and that it does not depend on what happens each day; they always assume something fabulous is going to happen today. This book shows dogs as they truly are-bursting with happiness, tired after a hard play session, chewing on a $300 running shoe, and locked in battle with a roll of toilet paper. It shows puppies so worn out by life's thrills that they fall asleep precisely where they were just standing on their wobbly little legs, and it shows dogs getting slower, older, and wiser, with a gaze that will break your heart.
