Dog Book Review and Giveaway: Awkward Family Pet Photos
Who can resist a book review pitch with the headline, “Share the Awkwardness”? Not me, clearly. Here, then, is our book review of Awkward Family Pet Photos from Mike Bender and Doug Chernack, the New York Times best-selling authors of Awkward Family Photos. Don’t miss your chance to win a copy of the book. It’s a perfect gag item for upcoming holiday gift exchanges.
Awkward Family Pet Photos is funny. Not quite as funny as I’d expected, but still funny — often in a cringe-worthy way. Some of the awkward family pet photos, especially where the people are naked, cross all kinds of thresholds for me. Seriously? Ick.
We’re not just talking dogs and cats, either. The book includes photos of people with their treasured family pets, including:
- Sugar gliders
- Equine friends
- Birds / poultry
In many cases (I’d argue most cases), the photos come from the 1970s and 1980s. The clothes, hairstyles, glasses, and general milieu give it away.
That dated the book for me, even though it just came out. Plus, I know there are a slew of “crazy pet people” taking and posting far more photos today. To balance my humbuggery, I had an impartial third party (Tom) browse the photos and pass judgement on Awkward Family Pet Photos:
- He laughed so hard he could not breathe at times.
- He shook in his chair with barely contained guffaws.
- He stomped his feet and covered his face in mock horror.
