Love dogs? Love humor? Love poetry? Let me introduce you to your favorite new book, Throw The Damn Ball - Classic Poetry By Dogs.
Throw The Damn Ball is a hilarious collection that will have any dog lover rolling on the floor, laughing out loud. Bestselling authors R.D. Rosen, Harry Prichett, and Rob Battles have teamed up once again to bring you the wittiest, wise-cracking dog poetry ever. You may recognize the titles of some of their previous collaborations; Bad Dog, Bad Cat and Bad President.
"Borrowing heavily from the classic poets including Yeats, Dickinson and Frost, the poems in this volume reflect every dog's concerns: love, loss, friendship..."Not only is each poem "channeled" through a smarter-than-the-average-human canine, each is also accompanied by full color photos of these witty dogs in odd, cheeky and funny poses and costumes. Perhaps, the photos alone will have many LOLing. If not, just look at some of the titles...
- Paw Ditty
- Scratch Me Arse
- Dreaming of Booty
