Book review: Today’s Dogg by Guy Gilchrist

Guy Gilchrist is a cartoonist who  worked on the now-defunct The Muppets comic strip (which I remember reading as a kid) and several that are currently syndicated nationwide, including Nancy and Today’s Dogg. And who can resist a  comic strip as adorable, funny and heartwarming as Today’s Dogg?

Today's Dogg by Guy Gilchrist

The Best of Today’s Dogg is a collection of one-panel cartoons that  features doggs (with a double-G) and occasionally cats. Some are heartwarming and brought a tear to my eye (especially the one of a dog laying at his late master’s tombstone), while others made me laugh out loud (a dog and cat sitting next to each other both wearing  “I’m with stupid” t-shirts.)

Other cartoons in the book touch on pop culture: the flooding in Nashville, baseball, NASCAR and a smidgen of religion. No matter the subject, all of the cartoons are drawn in extraordinary detail and accompanied by text that ranges from laugh-out-loud witty to thoughtful. I can only imagine the amount of time that goes into each one.

If you love your pets as much as I do, The Best of Today’s Dogg is a must-have!

The Best of Today’s Dogg is available at booksellers near you in May, 2011.
