Review: "Dogtology" by J. Lazarus


Note: This ARC was provided by Greenleaf Book Group via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my dogs. Heck, I love dogs in general. There's just something about the species that has me sitting up and begging for more. When I saw Dogtology up for review on NetGalley, I simply had to request for it. The idea of a religion or philosophy inspired by and dedicated solely to a human's devotion to the dog is creative genius and if such a thing did, indeed, exist, I'd be proud to say that I'm a believer and follower. ^.^

This book contains quite a few interesting snippets--a number that may give you paws, erm, pause so you can reflect, some that will have you smiling or laughing, and others that will have you wondering if the writer's sarcasm is meant to mock dog lovers' obsession with their pooches. I have no problem admitting to people that I tend to love my dogs more than I do humans so I felt no mockery aimed my way. I found myself agreeing with several insights in the book.

The fact that the word "dog" is "God" spelled backwards is something that countless people have noticed before but it was such a creative springboard on which to launch dogtology. Author J. Lazarus has put together a dog-ma (pun very much intended) that those whose lives revolve around their furry four-legged friends (other furry four-legged creatures are not included) can easily relate to. There's a lot of humor in the book but at its very heart is our love for dogs.

All in all, Dogtology was a quick and entertaining read and I would recommend it to my fellow bookaholic dog lovers out there. After I read the book, I simply had to give my dog Oliver a snuggle, something which I do often anyway, but I felt as if a lot of the stuff written reiterated why I love dogs, so my baby boy deserved a hug. While some people may think dog lovers overdo certain things, I'll happily admit that I am a leash-carrying dogtologist. ^.^ Four stars! ♥
