I really wanted to love this book but, honestly, I couldn't recommend it as anything other than a commute-friendly time-killer (because you won't mind putting it down when you arrive at your destination). I did not laugh out loud. Some bits were poignant, some self-indulgent. Ultimately, though, I did not warm to Jo, even though I have listened to her radio show in the past, and wish the book had focused more on the dogs and less on her.

Is there anything more annoying than a self proclaimed eccentric? Well, yes there is. Two self proclaimed eccentrics. I came into this book thinking it would be about their dogs. And when it is, it can be very enjoyable. Unfortunately, too much of it is self indulgent, middle class narcissism, so approach with caution.

Sorry but this book was complete and utter rubbish. It had too many cringe factors about it! Hated it from chapter one to the end. Not a lot i can say about it really. Boring boring boring.

I had hoped for more from this title, it seemed the sort of thing the wife and I would read and swap over with... Unfortunately neither of us could get to grips with the dizzying narrative style, reading more like a teenage diary than a story of adult women.

The content on the side of the dogs was just a means to an end of their telling their own stories, and as such didn't appeal.

Perhaps if you've seen Jo & Anna in their other works (e.g. Sky 1 & BBC London) then this would be of more interest, unfortunately from our joint point of view it read as quite different from our perspective, perhaps this is a local thing, perhaps just our general disliike of the narrative, what ever it is two stars it is going to get from us.

Unless you're a die hard fan, avoid this one folks.

Barking Blonde by Anna Webb & Jo Good is just one of those books once I start getting involved in the lives of Anna and Jo and of course their darling dogs I just could not consider stopping. From the first page when I was first introduced to Jo I knew this woman loved her dog as much as I loved mine but would I consider feeding mine from a bra just like her best friend I think I would consider drawing the line at that one. But for me I loved this book and I would highly recommend it for anyone who has a dog lover in their lives. One thing I will promise you this is one pair of ladies I certainly would not forget and I know I am quite happy with that and of course their dogs that both have faces only a mother could love!
Why I loved this book so much was for one reason the girls let their dogs be number one in their lives but yet they were dogs lovers first and their friendship grew from those four legged friends which totally took over their lives in so many ways. This book proved to me soul mates come in all shapes and sizes and that includes those of the four legged variety!
This book for me as well as being a laugh out loud filled with many of their experiences through their time basing their work around dogs but also it was an education especially through reading about Anna and her many contraptions she was always testing on that very well trained pooch of hers.

Although I'm by nature a cat-lover, I have grown to like several dogs in my time, though not to the extent of speaking to them in an invented language based on sounds I've heard them make. I've certainly never kept my eyes peeled for dog-specific products such as a Fido Float lifejacket (in day-glo green or Buddhist orange). But for some, dogs are more than a best friend.

Anna Webb and Jo Good have built their lives and their working relationship around their respective bitches, Matilda and Molly. This delightful, often hilarious book details how their dogs have enriched their existance, even helping to ease the sadness of a breakup with a bloke and the ups and downs of a longer lived human relationship.

As well as the Fido Float lifejacket, other wonderful innovations have been marketed to the discerning dog: Luxurious yet practical items such as the Suck Mutt (vacuums dog hairs from all surfaces and off of dogs too!), Mutt Muffs (to protect canine ears from unreasonable noise) and my personal favourite because it gave me the biggest laugh to read: No More Woofty From The Toofty (wait until you read it!)

It is touching to read how devoted Jo and Anna are to the wellbeing of their dogs, and how confused they often seem about their men! This is a beautifully written and surprisingly sweet account of dog-love at a truly new level!

I have to confess being put off by the cover of this book - the subtitle 'How two bitches taught two bitches to survive without men' seemed more crude than funny. The prominently displayed ringing endorsement from Julie Burchill (not a journalist whose work I admire) did not help. If you are attracted by the prospect of a 'hilarious and heart-warming story of friendship, fun and fur' this is for you. Otherwise, perhaps give this a miss. Includes photos and cute illustrations of the dogs to start each chapter.

I never write these but the tag like drew me in. Two bitches teaching two bitches. I am not a "bitch" but recently I bought a small gorgeous puppy who had become the love of my life. I am not a crazy dog lady and reading about two funny intelligent and together women who learned to love life rather than waiting for a man or anything else was freeing really! I love my pet and I know he is a pet but I realise that life is what you make of it and anything, even a small fuzzy friend, can teach you that. This book is fun sweet and a great read. Recommend. They won't show you the path to everlasting happiness. But that is refreshing. Ultimately they show you how good friends Human and dog help you through the tough times. Bravo!
