Summary

Dogs now dominate the $55 billion a year pet business, with nearly 40 percent of American households owning a total of 78.2 million dogs. Dog products, dog services, dog admirationokay, let's call it dog worshiphas become totally over the top, with doggie treadmills, dog swimming pools, caffeine-free doggie java, dog massage, dog perfume, aromatherapy, hair coloring, and, yes, dog tattoos that would have seemed outlandish a generation ago when applied to your everyday household Rover. But Rover isn't called Rover anymore: he's called Rufus. Or Lola, according to the Tumblog Hipster Puppies. In fact, all Top Ten Dog Names are people names. And the canine Rufus doesn't stay home alone all day; he goes to Doggie Daycare. Eats brightly frosted martini-shaped doggie treats. Wears designer tutus. Gets married on the beach. Has... Well, you'll see. With hilarious full-color photos throughout, Rabidholds a humorous mirror up to our dog-centered society, helping us laugh at our own behavior and at the even-more-insane antics of all those other dog people.

Table of Contents

"An essential book for all dog owners, and for all dogs reading at or above grade level." –Ian Frazier

"Whether you participate in dog-madness yourself, or just shake your head at your neighbors' absurd behavior, Rabid will have you laughing out loud. It’s funny because it’s true." –Gretchen Rubin, New York Times-bestselling author of The Happiness Project

"Pam Satran's Rabid is very funny, but it is also more than that. It is a penetrating look at the sometimes over-the-top emotional insanity of dog-loving Americans,  fueled by our ever- growing love for dogs. Rabid makes us think about this, which is valuable, even as we laugh, which is even more valuable. Every dog lover will smile and squirm a bit reading Rabid, and perhaps see their own reflections in the mirror." –Jon Katz, bestselling author of The Dogs of Bedlam Farm
