The clever and charmingly illustrated 94-page book that every one of the 78 million pet dogs in this country will want to get for his person!
Inside You're My Dawg, Dog you'll find 146 dog terms, idioms, proverbs and metaphors explained for people. On a single page you will find quotes from Shakespeare and Rihanna, Pre-Socratic philosophers, Black Sabbath and the NASDAQ.
You're My Dawg, Dog gives us fascinating etymologies and vivid examples of familiar phrases like "dog days", "dogfight", "Dogfish", and the "dog collar" worn by clergymen. Colorful dog terms are defined, like "black dog" which was Churchill's nickname for his bouts of depression, "tough dog to keep on the porch"--Hillary's descriptive for Bill, and "doggie style," which the author drily explains is not "Vogue for Airedales and Cocker Spaniels."
Not just a book for dog lovers, but also for readers and word-lovers.
