Book Review: Off the Leash by Rupert Fawcett

Hi everyone,

Manny here, again.  Mom’s still busy.

Manny at home

Mom asked me to write a book report for you today on the book Off the Leash:  The Secret Life of Dogs by Rupert Fawcett.  First of all I have to say thanks to Ute because she sent us this book for Christmas.   I have never seen Mom and Dad laugh so hard in my life.  Here is why they were laughing.  It’s a comic book.  Yeah, my parents read comic books.

Manny reads to friends

My favorite page is p. 26.  This page is so Kalev.  I watch her do this every day.   She lies on the couch on her blue blanket where she is supposed to be.  Then she nuzzles her nose under whatever Mom or Dad is holding.  The next thing you know she is sitting on their lap.

My friends and I loved this book because it was so funny, and it was about dogs.  I love dogs, even Kalev.  She thought Roo was a toy when we were sitting on the floor.  Mom had to take Roo away from her and put all of us up here on the mantle.  This is where we live.  When Mom took Roo away, Kalev actually came after me, and messed up my Hawaiian necklace.  I was scared for just a minute, but Kalev knows better than to mess with me.  I won’t tell you what I did.

Anyway, this is an awesome book.  It makes a great gift for a friend like Mom and Dad and me, and it would probably make a great gift for your friends who like dogs.  Click here to see other books by Rupert Fawcett.

Please respond to my survey below.

One more thing I have to ask you.  I’ve been thinking about doing a blog just like Justin Beaver does.  You are all grown ups, and Mom is a grown up (most of the time).  Would you read my blog?  Would you follow it?  I’ll put another survey up.

Thanks everyone.

Here is the link to my new blog.  Invite your kids to read and comment on it, too!  🙂

    • That’s been about it recently. I’ve been a lazy blogger! 🙂 Besides, Manny has been going to many more places than I have. And I’ve been around this fall and winter. Time to stay home for a while.

  1. Hi Manny 😀 What a brilliant book review. You are so good that you may usurp your Mom’s throne ….. that means you can eat doughnuts all day long 😉 I am looking forward to reading your new blog. I expect Mom will help you set it up.

    *whisper* Come closer Manny !! Ute is sooo funny 😀 You remember when she visited Spain and gave me “Simon’s Cat. Feed Me !!” by Simon Tofield. Well *looking around* as no one is listening, Ute sent me the same book for Christmas. So I’ve got two the same now !! I can read the book in stereo 😉 Ute is such fun !! Big hug. Ralph xox 😀

  2. What a wonderful gift!
    Our fam got the same book & we are enjoying it & laughing out loud.
    We can relate to a lot of it as we have our own furry family member to deal with.

    Nice job on your book report.
    And – I too am so in on following your blog!

In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
