I don’t know about you, but I love this time of year because of all the great dog-related gift books that are released in time for the holiday shopping season! We were happy to get our paws on the fun and funky new book Throw The Damn Ball: Classic Poetry by Dogs from best-selling authors R. D. Rosen, Harry Prichett and Rob Battles.
It’s a collection of humorous poetry and cute color photos, perfect as a stocking stuffer for any dog-loving poetry buff on your list. The clever and amusing poems pay tribute to the important things that really matter to a dog — love, loss, sex, friendship, meals, and bodily functions. Literary fans will recognize a dog’s take on some of the classics in human poetry including an homage to Emily Dickinson and other great poets. I’d recommend this book for adults only, as some of the dog humor is a bit explicit, but probably exactly what a dog would write about LOL! It’s a quick read and great as a bathroom book, as Woof Woof Papa pointed out. (TMI, I know!)
Throw The Damn Ball: Classic Poetry by Dogs is available now in hardcover at Amazon and local bookstores.
