Dog shaming by Pascale Lemire

The title of this delightful little book really does say it all - dogs being shamed with signs that spell out their crimes for the whole world to see.  I am a shameless animal lover with several dogs (and cats) at home and lots of friends with dogs and I was laughing right from the start recognising some of the behaviours of my dog and friends dogs in the photos. 

There are a variety of "crimes" and a variety of postures and poses - from dogs that really look like they are feeling the shame of what they have done through to dogs full of teenage attitude almost saying "and what are you gonna do about it, huh?" - so at least two of our dogs are represented here. 

While people who don't have dogs or who don't like dogs probably won't get the humour of this book, anyone who has owned dogs will recognise the misdeeds of their four-legged companions here.  Here is the website that started it all - - although as the book says they have raided the vault to publish never before seen pictures as well as favourites.
