Default Cat Spelled Backwards Doesn't Spell God

Who trembles for you when you are sad, hangs his head when you are mad, and drools on you as if you were the most beautiful, brilliant, and tremendously fragrant of them all? A cat? No, a dog. With all due apology to the cats out there, the title of this book could not be more accurate. Dogs are the most loyal of friends, the most indiscriminate of companions, and the only ones who will always adore you —even when you're bad. The dogs featured here range from an Irish Wolfhound named Brennain, who opposes war, fleas, and pills, to a pug puppy named Sydney whose only dislike is reading the daily newspaper—so she poops on it instead. Author Jeff Selis's tribute to our slobbery, four-legged friends urges us to follow their lead for awhile and stop thinking about traffic jams and cloudy days and alarm clocks, and instead take time to smell the floweres, the trees... the cute terrier down th street. This books of canine portraits will bring a smile even to those feline types who bitterly wish that T-A-C spelled GOD.
Customer Review: Amateurish in Writing and Photography
I have no idea what all the other reviewers are seeing and reading, but it certainly isn't "Cat Spelled Backwards." These "portraits" of dogs are snapshots that any dog owner could have taken, and what can be considered no more than one or two-line captions aren't even "cute." "Lucy D gets wiped out playing games with her brother and big sister in the big yard of their big house." That's neither funny, nor fun, and laughable in only the sense that I spent 11 bucks on this thing that I will now give away next Christmas.
Customer Review: Wonderfully done!
I ran across this book by accident, and fell in love with it right in the store. It is now my favorite coffee table book, and I enjoy paging through it regularly. I am purchasing additional books to give as gifts. This book has beautiful pictures and witty commentary. Some of these stories will both tug at your heartstrings and make you laugh all at the same time.
