Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Hilarious! Loved this book! I have followed the comic online for sometime now, and I was ecstatic that it was made into book form. Jones has a great grasp for the thoughts that seem to go through the minds of our beloved pets. While reading it, I couldn't help laughing out loud, and startling those around me! I was pleased to discover pages inside that I hadn't seen online. I wish the book was longer, and I can't wait until the next one is released!!!
