Dogs are celebrated members of our families thanks to their capacity for unconditional love, unfaltering loyalty, and now, in HOWL: A Collection of the Best Contemporary Dog Wit for their comedic genius. The follow-up to the New York Times bestseller, Dog Is My Co-Pilot, the Editors of The Bark have returned with over seventy rollicking pieces—ranging from personal essays and parodies to satires and aphorisms—highlighting the hilarity of dogs.

The Editors of The Bark have combed the literary world to properly capture the witty, sophisticated voice of today’s canine culture. Composed of works from a variety of contemporary humorists, literary authors, and comedians including Al Franken, Dave Barry, Margaret Cho, Kinky Friedman, Pam Houston, Haven Kimmel, Neal Pollack, and Roy Blount Jr., HOWL presents a comical and insightful look at the behavior of dog’s—and their people. Featuring rib tickling tales (what would a cocktail party be like if we behaved like dogs?), entertaining confessions (including one woman’s gastronomic foray into the world of dog food), and invitations to self-reflection (are you a crazy dog person? Take the test and find out), HOWL showcases our favorite pals and the endless reasons why we love them.
