Présentation de l'éditeur

They watch our every move, study our habits, judge our moods, and time our activities. They plot elaborate subterfuges to manipulate us into doing their bidding and trick us into participating in their nefarious schemes. They charm us into loving them. They are our dogs.

Genevieve, a brilliant seven-pound papillon who dares to break the canine code of silence, invites you into the inner sanctum of dogdom in this hilarious exposé about what dogs really think of their people. In her bitingly funny memoir, Genevieve reveals canine secrets never before shared with humans while also passing on her devious tricks-of-the-trade to her legions of furry pupils.

In Small Dog, Big Life, Genevieve sinks her teeth into such topics as driving tips for dogs, the tragedy of doorbells in TV commercials, measuring the intelligence of humans, finding a reason for cats, how prehistoric dogs saved the caveman's bacon, converting your house into an agility course, and productive kitchen behavior. Throughout, Genevieve unleashes a scathing analysis of human culture that will have sociologists all over the world looking for new jobs, while inspiring canines everywhere to rise up and assume their rightful places as heads of the household.

Insightful, entertaining, and peppered with sophistication, wit, and charm, Small Dog, Big Life is not only for animal lovers of all ages but for anyone who appreciates an ironic sense of humor. And, ultimately, through Genevieve's "words," it is a celebration of the wondrous and loving relationship between dogs and their people.

I'm usually suspicious of books barktated to humans without assistance from experienced canilinguists, but Dr. Fried seems eminently qualified and adept at putting Genevieve's deep thoughts into layman's words. While the well-known translations into Great Dane, Chihuahua, and Cocker Spaniel are meticulously faithful to the unique colloquialisms of puppy patter, Dr. Fried's edition takes a more scholarly approach, and I must say Genevieve expresses herself eloquently and humorously in this less-advanced mode of communication (English). Fried has gotten the star to open up and divulge celebrity life away from the bright lights and paparazzi; indeed, the reader will gratefully share the doghouse (bring your own newspaper) and beg for scraps from Genevieve's table of gossip. A hilarious gift for dog lovers and anyone who likes to laugh!

Anyone who owns a dog or is considering acquiring one should read this book. Genevieve shares great insight into the obviously superior mind of a dog. Her tips and secretes have truly helped me become a better human companion. I laughed until I cried at her stories of what canines put up with daily. She is truly delightful and as a bonus, she's so cute!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The Joan Rivers of dogdom 15 mars 2012

Ruthless, rude, politically -incorrect. That's how fans described this book, I just thought it was catty....see what I did there Genny hates cats. Well not just cats, she hates lots of things and what she doesn't hate she belittles. This book must strike a cord with Pap owners because it didn't with me. Dr. Fried seems to have a love/hate relationship with dogs (I'm just halfway through) where dogs can feel disdain but not love and he's just being manipulated. Too bad. I recommend Merrell Markoe's book Nose Down, Eyes Up,it's a much better read.

I love this book. Even though it was written by a Papillon, in truth it could have been written by a Sheltie! Enjoyed my way through every page. I bought a used copy and was delighted to find it signed by the author (actually both authors...Genevieve and Dennis Fried). That just made it more special.

Cute book, light read, pleasant, and sometimes funny. I didn't find it to be as in depth as I would have preferred, but still entertaining.
