Book Review: Red Dog Blue Dogby Karyn Zoldan on Oct. 02, 2012, under Animal News, Dogs, Canines, Fun with Fido, Barking Encouraged
Now not only do we have to contend with our family and friends who like and campaign for opposing candidates, but now our dogs too? No way. I think my greyhounds are independent but like me, they want to see the end of dog racing especially here in Tucson tomorrow.
For instance, a beautiful border collie says, “Blue Dog reminds you that we were all immigrants at one time.” While “Red Dogs (sitting on a roof/watch dogs) finally got that border fence built.”
“Red Dog relishes pooping on the New York Times.”
“Blue Dog loves his new e-reader because he can get all his liberal media in one place.”
“Red Dog would like to know why these flags were made in China.”
“Blue Dog would like to know if this dog bone is organic and fair trade.”
Funny — yes. Stereotypes — yes. Who cares? The great debate just got a tad more funny but never as funny as Jon Stewart.
A picture is worth a thousand words and this is a delightful doggy picture book. It’s the perfect gift for all the dog loving, political junkies on your gift list. Or your best friend who is going to vote for the other guy. Pssst…the film rights have been optioned by Sony and Robert Zemeckis.
Bonus: A portion of the proceeds from Red Dog Blue Dog will be donated to no-kill shelters and rescue groups around the country. Give me a candidate who leads us to no-kill and I’m there!
(Disclosure: The book was sent to me to review. Lucky for Mr. Sambuchino that I liked it.)
