Dirty Bow Wow Review & Giveaway + Dog Toy Drive

If you are a dog lover, I have the book for you ~ Dirty Bow Wow. This book is 110 pages of beautiful dog photographs and information. The book written by Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz features a different dog on each page with their favorite toys.

I really enjoyed reading about each dog and their toy. Really makes you see what personalities animals can have. I've always been an animal rights activists, so I love anything that gives people an idea that animals have feelings.

There are tons of breeds included in the book from pure bread to the gorgeous mixed dogs that usually come from shelters. The book isn't really about the breeds though, it is about the beloved toys of these dogs. The toys were so fun to discover from a poodle with a pink purse, black lab with a soccer ball to the tons of breeds with various stuffed lovies or blankies.

Even if you aren't a dog lover (I'm a cat person myself), you just can't help but smile with this book. It is wonderful for kids as well. They will enjoy looking at the photography and if they can read ~ Kids will definitely warm up to the stories of dogs toys. Who can relate better? This is the type of book that you want to leave out on your coffee table!

Now, what really makes this book special is the Dirty Bow Wow Dog Toy Drive that is going on this May 2009. The authors of the book want to help dogs in need by providing a toy drive for dogs at shelters and rescue groups. You can click the banner below for information!

You can also see all participating venues here: Dog Toy Drive Venues

Thanks to Ten Speed Press and Family Review Network, I have one copy of Dirty Bow Wow to giveaway to a Mom of 2 Dancers reader!

To enter ~ Just comment here with your favorite type of dog. Do you prefer pure breeds, if so what breed? Do you prefer the adorable mixed muts, then comment with that.

Extra Entries ~


Contest will end on May 18th at 11:59pm

Mutts from shelters can be truly wonderful dogs, but I have to admit that my favorite breed is the German Shepherd Dog - loyal, smart, and just plain magnificent!

I have a couple favorite breeds, Lab's and Cocker Spaniels. I have become attached to the Newfoundlands since I a 1/2Lab-1/2 Newfoundland and he is such a baby.

My favorite dogs are all dogs. The best dog I ever had in my life was a rottie/mastiff mix named Thor. Thor loved me more than any dog could ever love a human. He wasn't with us long, bad hips put an end to his love. He was a head turner! Our current dog is a 13 week old mastiff mutt named Geneva. She's gaining a pound a day!

I follow you via twitter and that's how I found out that I needed to come over here right away.

I am ready to win.

I prefer small dog breeds, including small mutts, simply because they fit my lifestyle better. I have a soft spot for all dogs and I hope to be able to rescue my next pooch!

I love all dogs and have owned quite a few different breeds. My favorites would have to be Shar-peis. We've had several over the last 20 years (our very first, named Jack the Ripple, lived for 17 years, which is crazy for a Shar-pei) and we still have 2 right now.
