Amazing Comic Captures the Laughable Struggle of Being a Dog Parent

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: [caption id="attachment_17530" align="aligncenter" width="500"]Joys of living in a multi-dog home Joys of living in a multi-dog home[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_17530" align="aligncenter" width="500"]poppy sits on human Large dogs = lap dogs[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_17530" align="aligncenter" width="500"]cat nuts Doggy Schadenfreude[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_17530" align="aligncenter" width="500"]on the sofa No use getting fancy couch cushions now[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_17530" align="aligncenter" width="500"]We all know that one generous dog who shares Every.
