Let's get this clear right away: I'm a dog. I'm 1'10" and weigh 63 lbs, and although I'm a mutt on the outside, I'm a purebred on the inside. My good nature comes from the Golden Retriever side of the family, while my stubbornness is clearly from my Chowchow bloodlines. I've got Rastafarian ears, a black tongue for licking, and paws that should be on a dog twice my size.

My name is Bo, and this is my story.
From shelter dog reject to beloved pet and popular doggie blogger, Bo Hoefinger's life has been anything but ordinary. Join this incorrigible canine as he welcomes us into his life, complete with his wacky "parents," a constipated feline housemate, and chipmunk warfare.
My take on this book:
Bad To The Bone is written and told from the perspective of Bo a former shelter dog, his uncanny storytelling ability is laugh out loud funny, if your an animal lover you must read this book!
I loved reading the antics of Bo and his siblings, Moose the cat and Copper his canine companion. I laughed so hard while reading this book, that I had to put it down a couple of times. His writing style really makes you visualize the stories he is telling, from the tale he weaves where his mother falls out of the car landing face down in the road and he winds up in the drivers seat, to the story where the parents are playing vet and giving Moose an enema, it these stories were so far out there that you could just see it happening. It was also nice to see the true love he had for his parents and siblings, and when he decided to take up for Moose against the neighborhood bully, a kitty named Skittle, which caused the police to show up was a laugh riot.
In addition to his life story he also disburses several lists throughout the book that will give us an inside look at his likes and dislikes. I also enjoyed reading the question and answer section with Bo at the back of the book, it was very informative. I also really enjoyed the pictures throughout the book.
A book that gives us great insight on the bond between humans and the pets that own them. Great job Bo on writing such a fantastic tail. I recommend this book to anyone who loves animals, and wants a good laugh! One a scale of one to five I would rate this one a six!

Thanks to Bo and his parents for providing me a copy of this book to review!
