A 5 Star Book Review for Dogtology by Jeff Lazarus...
1. The belief in Dog.
2. The system of rituals, practices, and behaviors engaged in by Dogtologists.
Chew on this. As humans, we have a deep need to believe . . . a need to relate to something greater and more ideal than ourselves. Perhaps that's why so many millions believe in Dog. Man's devotion to Dog has come to rival the great -isms and -ologies of the world. This has gone way beyond a hobby. We may not literally worship Dogs, but we come pawfully close. This rabid reverence for Rover has a name: It's called Dogtology. Dogtology is for the dog lover who has bailed on a date because they didn't want Twinkles to be left home alone, for the human whose dog owns a more festive holiday wardrobe than they do, those whose pups dine on free-range bison burgers while they live off ramen, or whose smartphones have more photos of their dog than of the humans in their family.
Live. Bark. Believe. Dogtology is a humorous exploration of man's fanatical devotion to Dog. In this book, Lazarus makes the case that Dogtology has become a bone-a-fide belief system on par with the world's great philosophies and religions.
Love dogs? So do I and I love this book! This is a wonderful book for dog lovers with beautiful illustrations. At just 192 pages it is a quick read and you’ll find yourself easily flipping through the pages. Author Jeff Lazarus has a great way with words in this book. If you’re a dog owner, you’ll also find yourself nodding, smiling and agreeing at the author’s written words here. I am proud to call myself a dogtologist and after you read this book, you will be proud to call yourself one, too.
Overall, I highly recommend this book without hesitation to anyone that loves dogs, owns dogs or is just curious about the relationship between dogs and their owners. Hands down: I love this book! Live. Bark. Believe, and do it all over again.

About the Author:
One night while out to dinner on a first date, the author was asked, ''What's your religion?'' Without thinking, he blurted out jokingly, ''Dogtology.'' As he later thought about his response, he realized there was more truth to it than he'd intended--he didn't just love dogs, he adored them. All his life, he has been a dog advocate, dog rescuer, and dog whisperee. That's right; dogs talk to him. (In fact, Dog told him to write this book.)
Until next review, stay safe. Smile! Show compassion to others. Be nice to one another. Read a book and pass it on. Review it. Cheers!
