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.

I type 60 words a minute.

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.

Review:

"Witty commentary and hilarious observations."--Dog Living Magazine

"A real treat. Bo is so distinctively adorable and funny, that no other dog will be able to follow in his pawsteps."--Tracie Hotchner, author of The Dog Bible and host of DOG TALK (NPR affiliate WLIU-FM 88.3 radio show)

"You'll laugh, you'll howl, you'll practically wag with pleasure. . .Bo is truly the voice of his doggy generation."--Dr. Marty Becker, Resident veterinarian on ABC TV's Good Morning America, Host of "The Pet Doctor with Marty Becker" on PBS, Author of 17 pet books, Nationally syndicated columnist, and Co-creator of petconnection.com

"A well-written and fun read. . .Bo takes you inside his family and you feel as if you're right there experiencing all the joys and pains with them. You'll want to hug your own dog after reading this book!"--Suzanne Jalot, Editor-In-Chief of DOGliving magazine

"Bo's rebel adventures in naps and squirrels will stir the heart and stoke human understanding of how dogs must think. His "voice" is utterly original, sharp, and kind."--Monica Collins, "Ask Dog Lady" columnist, askdoglady.com

"A funny, funny book giving the reader a hilarious insight into what might be in a dog's mind as he is given orders by his owners. Throughout the book, Bo continually displays his intellectual superiority when he is listening to his "Mother" and "Father" as he refers to them. His innocent explanations about how he constantly outfoxes them will have you giggling. Hilarious from beginning to end. This book will leave you chuckling to yourself and marveling at the cleverness of the author and Bo." --From Barbara Vey's Publishers Weekly Book Blog

Get honest, engaging, and hilarious insight into the inner life of a dog through the eyes of Bo, once a shelter-reject and now, a beloved family pet. --Modern Dog Magazine

Bad to the Bone: Memoir of a Rebel Doggie Blogger (Citadel Press, 2009) draws on Bo's experiences to paint a sympathetic, sweet, and kind portrait of an American family from the ground up, unfolding into an absorbing story of love, friendship, and loyalty. Written in a voice strong enough to make it easy to forget that this book wasn't actually written by a dog, this story brings humor and perspective to everyday life. Very easy to read and hilarious! --Melissa Barr
