The Complete Petrosexual: A Handbook of Style for the Modern Dog

Front Cover
Harry N. Abrams, Sep 1, 2005 - Pets - 112 pages
Few people realize that many dogs have a strong sense of style and innate good taste that goes beyond the dog dish. Dogs and their owners are about to be transformed by the narrator of the book and a dog's Virgil of the fashionista world, Sugar Magnolia. In her howlingly funny canine voice, Sugar gives fashion and lifestyle advice for transforming ordinary canines into modern petrosexuals - dogs of ultimate good breeding. From personal hygiene to commitment questions, dogs, and the humans who love them, will never be the same. Sample text in the section on eating - Human food? Too divine. Too easy to overindulge. A portly puppy is not a pretty puppy, so try to limit your intake. Be selective. A bit of cheese here, a morsel of ham there is really all you need. And just say no to chocolate. Chocolate is, alas, fatal for some dogs. Yes, it is true dear reader - chocolate can kill. You never know which dog it will strike or what the fatal quantity could be. One toxic truffle could be the end of you. There's plenty to eat without chocolate, trust me.
