"Equal parts hilarious and hair-raising, adventures abound, enlivened by expressive cartoon illustrations. The bright, energetic narration flows seamlessly among the dogs’ delightfully distinctive perspectives. . . This series starter is a doggone good time." -Kirkus Reviews
“Freeman illustrates throughout in a dynamic style reminiscent of William Steig. A story of redemption and unconditional love . . . this celebration of imperfectability and consensual squirrel-chasing features a cast of sympathetic canines who find that ‘sometimes it’s nice to just be a dog.’” –Publishers Weekly
"Laughs! Friendships! Mutts! BUTTS! Rachel and David obviously crawled into the brains of A LOT of dogs (and one squirrel) for this book, and the proof is in the pages!"
-Mindy Thomas, Wow in the World podcast
"Every day I read this book was the OPPOSITE of a bad day! These wonderful dogs took me on the adventure of a lifetime, one with tail-wagging twists and turns."
–Bowen Yang, Saturday Night Live
"A riveting insider's look at what it's REALLY like to be a dog living in the 21st century. Be a GOOD HUMAN and read this book to fully understand your furry masters."
