Product Description

Product Description

This eponymous comic became an instant hit when it went live on The Oatmeal.com and was liked on Facebook by 700,000 fans. Now fans will have a keepsake book of this comic to give and to keep.In My Dog: The Paradox Inman discusses the canine penchant for rolling in horse droppings, chasing large animals four times their size, and acting recklessly enthusiastic through the entirety of their impulsive, lovable lives. Hilarious and heartfelt, My Dog: The Paradox eloquently illustrates the complicated relationship between man and dog.We will never know why dogs fear hair dryers, or being baited into staring contests with cats, but as Inman explains, perhaps we love dogs so much “because their lives aren’t lengthy, logical, or deliberate, but an explosive paradox composed of fur, teeth, and enthusiasm.”

I've always loved Matthews unique perspective on different subjects and visit The Oatmeal often. This is great for any dog lovers out there, don't buy it with kids in mind though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the dog owner 17 Jun 2013
By melg
Format:Hardcover
Bought this for my husband. Our dog is now 11 years old and this book is sooo true of doggy behaviour. Brings a tear to your eye in places (if you're soft like me); a really brilliant book for someone who loves dogs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite funny 31 July 2013

In some strange ways you can relate to all the dogs that were in your life! Entertaining and silly but that's the whole point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book 13 Jun 2013
By TCK
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this little book (and be aware, it is a little book). I bought it to read during take off and landing on a recent holiday, when using a kindle will apparently cause the end of days and it didn't last too long.

However its longevity was extended by me laughing like a maniac as we taxied and took off. A very funny book.

I'm a dog owner myself and have seen this cartoon online I had no idea it was a book.

Bought this for my sister who is also a dog owner and she loved it, its a great little stocking filler.
