REVIEW: Throw The Damn Ball

Throw The Damn Ball

Classic Poetry by Dogs

by R.D. Rosen, Harry Prichett, and Rob Battles

Hardcover: 142 Pages

Publisher:  Plume (October 29, 2013)


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
  • Hamburger Helpless
  • Licking My Balls on a Snowy Evening
  • Ode To Errands
Pick up a copy of Throw The Damn Ball today... or better yet, pick up two.  It makes the perfect stocking stuffer for literary dog lovers on your holiday list!

I love the title and several of those selections sound like my dogs could have written them. I'm giving one to my friend for Christmas.
