NANCY FURSTINGER has been speaking up for animals since she learned to talk, and she hasn't shut up yet. She is the author of many books on her favorite topic: animals! Nancy has been a feature writer for a daily newspaper, a managing editor of trade and consumer magazines, and an editor at two children's book publishing houses. She shares her home with big dogs and house rabbits (all rescued), and also volunteers and fosters pets for several animal organizations. This is her first book for National Geographic.

Fun in the Park May 4, 2008
I took "Why I'd Rather Date My Dog" to the park this morning and sat near the dog run reading. After seeing the cover, seven women stopped to tell me of their experiences dating men. As they recalled their dates in detail, I would flip through the book and show them where the author had that situation covered. Much unexpected fun was had this morning praising our dogs (one woman had a cat) as wonderful dates. This may be the book you need for your next party as an ice breaker.
Why I'd Rather Date my Dog - LOVED IT! May 4, 2008
I thought this book was really cute and I read it in a short period of time. If you have dogs or have had dogs (and not much luck in the dating world) you will enjoy this and find it humorous. I also loved the fact that Nancy encourages people to rescue unwanted pets from rescues and shelters. I thought that was just super!
Humorous, Enjoyable Reading Apr 13, 2008
Read this book if you like dogs as much as you like people. This "tongue in jowl" book if full of enjoyable quips about the beauty of dogs.
In this dog-eat-dog world, it is nice to have a light, quick read, which is very funny. Wonderful for the coffee table or bedroom. I find myself continually flipping it open to read about something a dog will do to charm and amuse you.
The author has rescued many animals from awful conditions and has given them a wonderful home. Pleae support someone who supports animals.
Buy it! You'll like it! Feb 10, 2008
All the reviews here are right on the money. The book is fun, funny and written by someone who can make you smile with just a few pages of delightful insights. And as someone who knows Nancy, let me share with you that she is a true animal lover and rescuer of dogs and rabbits. She not only writes well, she lives her life for the betterment of animal treatment. So read her book, enjoy the fabulous illustrations and buy a copy or two for your friends. You won't regret it!
A Delightful Book! Jan 11, 2008
This book is a real delight! The humor is charming and entertains with most-of-us-have 'been there!' truth. It will put a smile on your face and love in your heart in appreciating and encouraging happy hours and 'unconditional' love shared with one's own companion animal(s). The illustrations are wonderful, too. I highly recommend spending some time with one of your furry best friends by your side for a perfectly fun-filled read.
