This eponymous comic became an instant hit when it went live on The and was liked on Facebook by 700,000 fans. Now fans will have a keepsake book of this comic to give and to keep.

In My Dog: The Paradox, Inman discusses the canine penchant for rolling in horse droppings, chasing large animals four times their size, and acting recklessly enthusiastic through the entirety of their impulsive, lovable lives. Hilarious and heartfelt, My Dog: The Paradox eloquently illustrates the complicated relationship between man and dog.

We will never know why dogs fear hair dryers, or being baited into staring contests with cats, but as Inman explains, perhaps we love dogs so much “because their lives aren’t lengthy, logical, or deliberate, but an explosive paradox composed of fur, teeth, and enthusiasm.”

    Very short though. I should have bought the actual book, the paper copy.
  • Size

    It's a little short, I wouldn't say it was worth five bucks. Perhaps he should have added more comics.
  • Really funny!

    This book is super funny! You should buy it. There is only about 30 pages but u could read it over and over again and it won't get old! Some bad words but super hilarious! On one page the dog says, "The human is back! Awesome! Guess what, human? I took a BIG dump! A dump on the neighbors petunias! Petunias are the best! Dumps r the best! Luv dumps on petunias 4life!!!!" You should also buy the How to Tell if your cat will kill you! Also funny.
