Doggie Language, and a very funny book

January 16, 2012 at 7:49 pm 8 comments

Have I posted this before?

I have drawn several “dog body language” illustrations, but my Boogie Doggie Language version is the largest one, and available for FREE download!  This has also been translated to Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and Thai, … more languages coming soon.

***EDIT TO ADD:  – reading body language in context!

Recently I started reading How To Raise A Jewish Dog.

This is not a dog training book, it’s supposed to be filed in the HUMOR category and OMG, it’s hilarious.

Amazon Link

This book is a parody of the Monks of New Skete book (haven’t read, no interest in reading) and the authors say you don’t have to be Jewish or want to be Jewish to follow this program, which is not about training or rewards or punishments, but about “solving problems together”.  Techniques include Praising Dog to Other People, Guilting (in private), Situational Matyrdom, Pampering, and Use of Subtext. Ha.

Pages for your amusement:

“Enlightened Acceptance” happens too frequently in this household 🙂

    I read the “Monks” some years ago, and they have their things. Sure, old method, collars, etc. BUT they insist in living with your dog. LIVING with your dog. Go with him to the market, to work, sleep in the same room, play,… that, I liked.
    Love your drawings, as always.
    If you need some spanish translations, just tell me.

      Hi Teresa,

      I cannot imagine NOT living or working or sleeping with my dog. I would take him to the market, to restaurants, on the train etc. if they would let me! 🙂

      Thank you for your translation offer. Are you able to translate this to Spanish? –

      – Lili

    Your pictures are da bomb! I recognize those exact expressions in Georgia. These illustrations are free to download? Wow. Might take you up on that. I see Boogie listed in some publications below. Do you have your own book on Boogie?

      Yes, free download:)
      I WISH I had my own book on Boogie! It’s on my list of things to do!

      Hi Sheena, I only use ACV once – the smell is so intense… I am not sure it made any difference but Boogie’s skin was already too far gone.
