Product description

The authors of the "New York Times bestseller Awkward Family Photos" are back with a hilarious tribute to the unbreakable and sometimes uncomfortable bond between people and their pets. There are few things more rewarding than having a pet. They love us unconditionally, shower us with attention, and because of them, we actually live longer. So, what can possibly be awkward about our animal BFFs? Well . . . nothing. In fact, we're the awkward ones. We adore our pets, but let's face it--sometimes L-O-V-E makes us go a little overboard. Like giving them middle names, throwing them elaborate birthday parties, and making them a Christmas sweater to match with the rest of the family. Truth is, what they cherish most is our companionship. And maybe that's the reason we care about them so much--because for such simple pleasures, they allow us to be as awkward as we want.

Online buzz for AwkwardFamilyPetPhotos.com: "The folks who brought the Internet the face-palming absurdity that is Awkward Family Photos have struck comedy gold again with Awkward Family Pet Photos." --AOL "Hilariously awkward." --MSNBC.com "The genius minds behind the hilarious site Awkward Family Photos - which features cringe-worthy, embarrassing photos of fairly creepy, fashion-challenged families - have taken their collection of awkward photos to a whole new level with their hysterical new site, Awkward Family Pet Photos." -AnimalPlanet.com Praise for "Awkward Family Photos" "This is the best book of embarrassing and strange photos of people who look like my family that I have ever seen." --Judd Apatow "A living, breathing, laugh-out-loud reminder that no matter how badly you dressed, how oddly you posed, and how weird Uncle Dave who lived in the basement was, somebody out there had it worse." --Jennifer Weiner, bestselling author of "In Her Shoes ""Being a test tube baby doesn't seem such a bad idea after looking at these folks. I laughed till it hurt. To paraphrase Tolstoy... every family is freaky in its own way. There's so much love here- but maybe a little more pain, or desperation, or bewilderment. I often feel slightly sad or guilty that I'm not closer with my own family- but looking at this bunch I sense we all have something in common and I'm far from being alone." --David Byrne "Anything that both makes me laugh and think my family isn't so embarrassing deserves to be a book." --Joel Stein, "Time" magazine columnist "I wept with laughter fourteen times while reading this book and snorted aloud twice. I dare you to find a higher weep/snort ratio in any other publication." --Karen McCullah Lutz, screenwriter of "Legally Blonde" and "The Ugly Truth """Awkward Family Photos" is the funniest book that I've read in a long time. It reminds you that it's okay to laugh at yourself and ce
