I am glad to see this book in print again. I haven't had a physical copy of this for years, so as of now this review is based on memory.

A Zen Buddhist friend of mine recommended this book for me when I asked him about his beliefs. I read many books that explained and defined Buddhism, but this book gave "personality" to it. The book is more playful than humorous. Each cartoon strip features a dog and his smaller friend. The large dog is desperately seeking "The Truth", while the smaller one always seems to have the answers even though he never looks for them or is aware that he has them.

Once I get my hands on another copy, I will give it the review it deserves. I highly recommend it for anyone more interested in Zen Buddhism. ( )
