First seen on the Off the Leash Facebook page, where fans get a daily dose of humorously accurate sketches by Rupert Fawcett, ‘Off the Leash: The Secret Life of Dogs’ is a collection of the very best of Fawcett’s work. Boasting more than 650K likes on Facebook, the series has already achieved worldwide success as a “celebration of our favorite belly-scratching, tail-chasing, bed-stealing canine friends.”

After being the target of many stares on the subway (I will not apologize for chuckling out loud on the train), I knew I had to share with our BarkPost readers. Here are a few favorites included in the book:

Joys of living in a multi-dog home
Joys of living in a multi-dog home

 

poppy sits on human
Large dogs = lap dogs

 

cat nuts
Doggy Schadenfreude

 

on the sofa
No use getting fancy couch cushions now

 

We all know that one generous dog who shares
Every. Single. Time.

 

time to have some fun
The perils of leaving the house with only one poop bag

 

puppy school newspapers
Gotta start them off young

 

delivery
Inhaling noxious fart fumes is inevitable when you’re a pup parent

 

Starting this October, US fans will be able to get their paws on a copy of Off the Leash. Click here to preorder.
