“Dog Confessions and its counterpart I’d Rather Be a Cat are humorist Allia Zobel Nolan’s latest attempts to give canines their day and felines their say. She indirectly addresses the age old question of which species is the better pet; or even more specifically, which fur species best beguiles, charms and enchants their owners. Comically told through beautiful pictures and quips from pets worldwide, Dog Confessions and I’d Rather Be a Cat (where cats are lauded in the aggregate), would make the perfect Valentine’s Day, hostess and beginning reader gifts in their charming, hardcover, mini book format.”
