Originally published by Hodder & Stoughton, the 50,000 copy selling sequel to 100 Ways For A Dog To Train Its Human, 100 Muddy Paws For Thought is now back in print, and takes a humorous look at dogs and the great outdoors. Our humans pretend to get upset when we get muddy but we know they expect it really. At last, gems of doggy wisdom on how to wear your mud with pride!

Excerpts from the book:

On those wet, windy, wintry walks when you’re as dirty and as slimy as you can get, don’t slip and slide frenetically as you try to clamber over a stile. Let your human sweep you up into their arms and gently carry you over, whilst you watch the remnants of that cow pat transfer from your coat to theirs.

Responsible humans like to know where you are at all times. Be considerate and tell them where you’ve been too, by leaving a trail of muddy footprints across all floor surfaces. It’s only since humans have domesticated dogs, that you’ve had to be clean. Go ancestral. Get dirty!

Amazon Reviews

No dog-lover should be without this book and if you’re thinking of getting a dog, then you may be put off for life. Simon Whaley has our canine friends sussed, so forget the books by professional behaviourists, between 100 Ways For A Dog To Train Its Human and 100 Muddy Paws For Thought, the author has left no stone unturned to expose what calculating, conniving creatures populate the dog world.

Verdict: Brilliant! Loved It” 

This book has a chuckle or a smile on every page. You don’t have to own a dog to enjoy this book. Just watch everyone else with a dog when you have read it and you know it’s true.
Superb read!!! 

I am a sucker for dog books….and ‘One hundred paws for thought’ is so much fun…a fantastically funny reference book. A smile on every page indeed.

My tip of the day… read this along with ’100 Ways For A Dog To Train Its Human’ then read ‘Marley and Me’ or/and ‘Shakespeare My Butt!’ …both funny dog tales in their own right…but oh so much more to them when you see what Marley and Barney are thinking!
