Review: 3 out of 5 Stars

I was expecting this book to be more of a humorous take on how to live your life like your dog. You know the meme, “if you cant eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away.” And some of the book was like this. I definitely enjoyed the parts that were in Sadie’s point of view and the anecdotes about other dogs.

The rest of the book was part memoir, part self help – with advice from real life experiences of Sadie’s co-author, along with quotes from history or psychologists. It felt a little bit like a lecture at times. And that doesn’t necessarily make this a bad book, its just not for me.

The cartoons and pictures of Sadie are also wonderful.

I received an advance copy from NetGalley for an honest review
