"Spring brings questions too-
Who feeds the birds, tells them "good,
boy, very good boy"?"
Downward Dog, by Samm Hodges and Phinehas Hodges, is a book of poems supposedly composed by Martin, the dog, from the eponymous American sitcom. Martin (voiced by writer, Samm Hodges) lives with his owner, Nan (of Krampus and the FX series Fargo) and is tormented by a neighbourhood cat named Pepper (voiced by Maria Bamford). The first season of the series aired on the American ABC network in 2017.
This brief volume contains some cute poems about Martin's life and neighbourhood, like his love for Nan, his hatred of Pepper, the cat and the monotony of dog food. It would probably appeal most to dog lovers.
