My dog sends me texts. Yeah. It's weird. When October Jones figured out he could send text messages to himself on his mobile phone, he naturally decided that the best use of this discovery was to send passive-aggressive messages to himself under the guise of his bulldog. And so the exasperating, slightly delusional, and utterly endearing Dog and his alter-ego BatDog were born. Texts from Dog features Dog's attempts to keep the neighborhood safe from the likes of Mr. Postman and his arch-nemesis Cat-Cat-he has managed to only smash three TVs and a patio door in the process. And in between crime fighting sprees and run-ins with the squirrel mafia, there are romantic interludes with pillows, fetch sessions gone terribly awry, and the abusive banter only a bromance between man and his text-savvy dog can spawn. For those of us who have ever had a conversation with a pet in our heads, Texts from Dog will make you laugh out loud and perhaps even make you think twice about leaving your pet home alone for the day.

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!!!
