Word Magic: All About Books: Book Review: The Journal of Ted Terrier

I enjoyed Ted's journal. It offers an answer to the question, "What does our dog know that we don't? Long live Ted Terrier, a wise little treasure! One person found this helpful. Emma Knight has made a lovely contribution with this book which has an excellent plot.

I look forward to future books by her. Please keep up the good work. The Journal of Ted Terrier just has to be one of the funniest and wittiest observations I have read on humans and their erratic behavior, from a dog's point of view.

Ted Terrier, a more than intelligent Jack Russell, lays his family bare, revealing the universal human condition of weakness, insecurity, foibles, and failings, seeing life though rose-coloured specs, and the many other silly human things that silly humans do. His journal spares no one and from six-foot-something head of the family Peter, to depressed mum Jane, to amanuensis sibling Emma who struggles to hold onto her creativity, hence this book to help her get it back , to the various visitors so few He is honest, fair, and alarming perceptive, especially if you are a human reading this book and you recognise some of your ahem failings as a member of the dominant species.

Ted starts right off by confessing his obsession with feet, and gives us a description of his family's feet.

The smells of his family's feet, to be exact. That gives readers an idea of how dogs see humans: Anyone taller than a human child is very big to a small dog. On the philosophical side, Ted waxes lyrical as he explains the difference between human and dog thinking.

See a Problem?

Humans' problem is they think too much and they end up confusing themselves and making their own lives difficult. From there he touches on the benefits of Sunday walks and everyone knows every day should be Sunday ; the problem with religion; how bad it is to get upset; what exactly is black comedy; and what really matters in life. On a practical side, he observes that dogs have it much easier because they wear their clothes fur all the time, and how communication with humans can be difficult i.

The absolutely fantastic illustrations give readers a very clear picture of what happens in Ted's household and I had many laugh-out-loud moments. Witty, sometimes acerbic, and with comic observations any human will appreciate, The Journal of Ted Terrier will make you see your dog in a very different light.

He explores the distance between his rational perceptions and the irrationality of human views on life and in so doing warns us to mind the gap!

Ted considers himself to be a dog of very high empathy, with skills in psychotherapy for humans , anthropology and sociology of humans in relation to each other and dogs and on occasion cats , behaviourism and anything else to which an animal with just the right amount of intelligence can apply himself. His philosophy is that human beings have too much intelligence for their own good and he postulates that to be why they make a mess of so many things, causing themselves trauma externally and internally.

Ted understands the vitals of human speech and in addition to the enhanced senses of smell, taste and hearing possessed by dogs; he also has a sixth sense. Hence they are able to communicate. The Journal of Ted Terrier is a sensitive, poignant, witty exploration into the lives of the human, canine and feline inhabitants of a detached suburban house in England, from the point of view of the family dog, writing about his experiences, life and passions as instalments in a journal.

Unlike his human family, Ted has all four paws firmly on the ground. He explores the distance between his rational perceptions and the irrationality of human views on life and in so doing warns us to mind the gap! The style of the piece mirrors the thinking of its author: Paperback , 68 pages.
