My Review: This book is just pure fun. I’m an animal lover anyway, and always enjoy cute pictures of dogs, but the captions are what really made me crack up! I admit that it took me a while to get the whole “animal speak” thing at first, but it is part of the charm of LOLcats and LOLdogs. When I first read the book, my husband was in the other room and I kept running in there saying “look at this one” over and over again. He finally stopped and just looked through the book with me.
