Book Review: What Dog Are You? Discovering Your Inner Pooch

Paperback, 75 pages

Have you ever wondered which breed of dogs shares your personality traits or physical appearance? If you were a dog, what dog would you be? With the help of this book, you can find out the answer.

The book has three quizzes: Pooch-Onality (which dog shares your personality quirks?), Dapper-Dogs (which dog do you most resemble?), and Biscuits or Bones (which breed shares your same opinions?) The questions are fun and whimsical; the quizzes friendly and easy. My family and I had a great time doing the quizzes for each other and finding out the type of dogs each of us were. Once you add the result values, you go to the ‘Leader of the Pack’ score list to find out the dog that matches you and also see its picture (black & white drawings). Towards the end, there’s also a short section about the major dog groups and their characteristics.

Though the quizzes aren’t scientific, the book is amusing. My ten-year old loved it and brought it to school the next day to share with her friends. An entertaining, fun book for family and friendly gatherings! If you love dogs or own one, you’ll want to add this little pamphlet to your shelf.

Cute idea for a book, why didn't I think of that? I would've loved that as a kid, and I think a lot of adults might find it interesting too, like you said.
