"As fascinating and quirky as they are, having a cat is like having a pet. Having a dog is like having a really stupid brother that needs a lot of looking after." Writer William Thomas, once the consummate cat lover and author of the bestselling Malcolm and Me: Life in the Litterbox, is now a complete dog fanatic. In The Dog Rules, William and his handsome Border Collie/Australian Shepherd Jake take you on a wild and wacky walk along the road of cohabitation between man and man's best friend. It's just not quite clear who's got whom on the leash. If you have a dog, know a dog or have ever had one leak on your lawn, you'll laugh out loud at the manner in which these half-humans really do love their way to the top and take over as head of the household.
