    Matthew Inman dishes another helping of hilarity from his online comic The Oatmealin My Dog: The Paradox. After years of carefully observing his own dog, Rambo, Inman follows his #1New York Times best-selling How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You,with this ode to the furry, four-footed, tail-wagging bundle of love and unbridled energy frequently dubbed man’s best friend.

    This eponymous comic became an instant hit when it went live on The Oatmeal.com 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.”
