The Complete Petrosexual: A Handbook of Style for the Modern Dog


The Complete Petrosexual: A Handbook of Style for the Modern Dog Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's about style, it's about grace . . . it's about how to handle the human race. <BR>You may have heard of the metrosexual, the modern urban male for whom appearance and lifestyle are paramount. Now meet the petrosexual-the canine with the chic leather collar, the Corbu dog bed, and the right moves to control his human owner. For ordinary dogs who haven't yet achieved this extraordinary status, "Petrosexual" is the ultimate guide to becoming a furry fashionista. <BR>Sterling Sugar Magnolia, the sassy pup who narrates the book, offers highly opinionated views on everything from personal hygiene to commitment issues, from holiday garb ("Seasonal frou-frou will never be in fashion.") to human food ("Too divine. Too easy to overindulge."). Collars vs. harnesses? "Harnesses can make one look quite pudgy, if one is not careful." Where to sleep? "Do not, under any circumstances, allow your human to think it is okay for you to sleep on the floor." Filled with dire warnings about "fashion faux paws," hilarious "do and don't" photographs, and hundreds of tips for mutts who are panting for a fashion and lifestyle makeover, this exceptionally clever and colorful advice book is the perfect gift for the dog-and dog owner-who aspires to absolute fabulousness.

About the Author

Blessed with uncompromising taste, Shug has had great success in reshaping her biped's behavior to accommodate the needs of the two-legged and four-legged alike. She currently resides in Sag Harbor, New York.
