Let's get this clear right away: I'm a dog. I'm 1'10" and weigh 63 lbs, and although I'm a mutt on the outside, I'm a purebred on the inside. My good nature comes from the Golden Retriever side of the family, while my stubbornness is clearly from my Chowchow bloodlines. I've got Rastafarian ears, a black tongue for licking, and paws that should be on a dog twice my size.

I type 60 words a minute.

My name is Bo, and this is my story.


From shelter dog reject to beloved pet and popular doggie blogger, Bo Hoefinger's life has been anything but ordinary. Join this incorrigible canine as he welcomes us into his life, complete with his wacky "parents," a constipated feline housemate, and chipmunk warfare.

    I'm one of the very few people who did not care for the author's writing style. In my opinion, it was too cute with the dog-narrator calling his owners his parents. There were some escapades. Reminded...

    This is a very charming book written by a very charming dog (Bo). As someone who loves dogs and live with 2 of my own, if this wasn't written by a dog then it was written by someone who knows dogs ver...
