Neither you nor your dog actually have to be Jewish to enjoy this ludicrous but extremely funny spoof pooch manual filled with dire jokes that would make even Woody Allen cringe. From how to find a vet who will be sufficiently responsive to your Jewish dog's high emotional neediness to buying it muffins at the airport to disguise the tranquilisers you're going to give it for travelling, it made me shake with laughter again and again; not to mention the cover.
How to Raise a Jewish Dog is essentially one long joke: bit it's a very funny one! at only 162 pages it doesn't outstay its welcome. The prose is well-written with a great sense of comic timing, which is why it comes recommended. Just remember: if you read it on public transport you're likely to attract attention with your chuckling.
A dog is not just for Chanucah. So those of you who have recently acquired a pooch will be happy to know that this is now a training manual.
