I know we are probably a strange breed as are our dogs, but so seems to be Gary Larson, too. And quite a character, just as dachshunds. Who else would have thought of painting copies of Dali, Picasso and Rubens - but using wiener dogs as models? There are eight versions of wiener dog art reaching from cave paintings to Munch's (?) "Whine" - with Larson's hilarious comments on the value, meaning and originality of the paintings. Otherwise the book contains his usual quirky comics, though the cover itself is already one form of wiener dog art. Good gift for dog lovers and people who like Larson's sense of humour.
