Everything I Know About Men I Learned From My Dog, by Clare Staples


I read this book a few months ago at Kinokuniya Singapore. I was running out of cash and was in the middle of a dilemma, between buying this book or “The Alchemist” (English version) AND “The Rules of Life“. I HAD to choose the latter..*sob*

But I’ll get it as soon as I have enough money (pasti di Jakarta harganya lebih mahal deh, hiks..)

So with all due respect to men out there, we -yes I’m talking to you lady- should always keep in mind that men will be men, just like dogs will be dogs. 5 stars for this awesome-deep-smart-witty book!

I know you’re dying to know, so here’s a sneak peak:


MAN: Handsome men are never a great bet. Often they have learned to rely on their looks and have not had to develop a personality or sense of humor — far more important qualities.

DOG: Don’t choose a dog for looks alone. Looks are only skin-deep — loyalty, devotion, and eagerness to please and unconditional love are the most wonderful things.


MAN: When you first meet your man, don’t change anything for him. Don’t give up your friends or hobbies. Never cancel anything to be with him.

DOG: When you first get a dog, chances are he will whine when you leave him alone, but he’ll get used to it and appreciate you more when you spend quality time with him.


MAN: When your man does something that you like — such as brings you a present — reward him. Give him a treat, spoil him.

DOG: All dogs love praise. Train a dog with positive rewards for positive behavior.
