This wildly entertaining book is loaded with laugh-out-loud moments that only become funnier with each repeat read-through. Kids adore the sharply defined canine characters, best buddies Ick and Crud, whose human-like fears and foibles mirror their own. Young readers readily empathize with the dogs' avoidant behavior when faced with a trip to the vet, particularly their melodramatic musings once it becomes clear that receiving a shot is imminent. As Ick puts it: ". . . I'm too cuddly to die. I have so many more squirrels to chase. And so many more flowers to pee on. Oh, the horror!" The equally hilarious illustrations are indispensible in capturing the ups and downs of being at the mercy of a master's (or Mom and Dad's) decisions, even when it happens to be for one's own good. And, as any dog owner will attest, this story's quirks and characters are all the funnier for being an accurate representation of the doggy meltdowns that tend to occur each time another visit to the vet is at hand.
