KIRKUS REVIEW

Fe Fido fo fum. Guess what this book's about. It seems that some of our best humorists have had their dog days and lived to write about it. Take Ogden Nash: ""The truth I do not stretch or shove./ When I state the dog is full of love./ I've also proved by actual test./ A wet dog is the lovingest."" In this collection of poems, cartoons and stories you'll find Benchley giving tips on buying: ""the ideal age for a boy to own a dog is between forty-five and fifty;"" Thurber lamenting his militant Muggs, The Dog That Bit People, but then the editor counters with: ""I know a man who barks at dogs."" You'll also find Wodehouse, Twain, Perelman, Nash, Jean Kerr, E.B. White, Steig...even Will Rogers. It all goes to prove that man's best is his funniest friend and dog owners will whippet up.
