Sounds good to me!

  3. Jack - Do we have to meet Simon Cowell ?

  4. I already bought your ebook but I don't mind having the REAL book with your pawtograph on it! I don't mind your towel too.

  5. Count Edward and me in!!! I'm still getting the pdf version but a hardcopy - that would sure be nice to have on my coffee table!

  6. The towel would be great. A tasty book would be good too. Oh, wait, the hu-dad says he wants to read it before we can chew it. And something about if we get teethmarks on his iPad he will blah blah blah.

  7. I want that book! Momma bought the PDF version but every time she tries to read it she complains that it is not real!


  8. Jack....!!
    We'd love a copy of your book......!!

    Enjoy........Max & Mia

  9. My dearest Jack you are the most handsome Labradude in the world with great big brown eyes that remind me of delicious chocolate ice cream and on top of that you are a natural blonde ya da ya da ya day!! Jack did I suck up enough to qualify to win your book?

    Madi your favorite (and probably only) feline

    I never win anything....

    Hey Jack;
    I'm sure that if you bring your book to Udall Park and set up shop to pawtograph it, you will get lots of peeps to buy it. I know my mum will. Also, I miss you and wish you'd come back to Udall -- just let me know when you'll be there and mum and I will be there with bells on.

    soppy wet kisses and licks


  22. Signing in to be entered in the contest. I would love to read the book!!


  23. I am not very lucky at these contests so how can I order one? When are you leaving on the book tour? Pack LOTS of treats!

  24. my momma has already been reading da .pdf version, butt we could REALLY use a real one, cuz her has spewed coffee and soda and other stuffs all over this one. Her starts laughing and snorting and then sprays da beverage on da papers! sigh. you think her would learn to read your book without stuffs in her mouth.

    Or.....the towel might work out fur us too. We could use it to clean up our .pdf version!

  25. I would love to win or buy this book. Can't wait to read it either way. Let me know how to buy it in hardcover. I'll be looking for you in the NYT best seller.

  26. Here's my comment: In the PDF version of your book (It's very entertaining so far), there is a typo on page 19!! See, a comment that is constructive.

  27. We'd like a signed copy! Mom's been trying to purchase a copy (.pdf - I think?) and has been having troubles!


  28. A copy with your pawtograph????
    Yeees! I want it... I want it...
    Kisses and hugs

  29. Woof! Woof! Golden Hooray n Dance just for you JACK. I think TG is getting all the credits. Golden Thanks for TG's message ... we are awaiting for a very long time for their kit ... a bit worried of their customer service but it is darn affordable n you can not totally beat that. How's the quality? Will wait to buy it cause I know I WILL WIN your book. A Jack book review is on our list to do. How exciting. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  30. Yes we would love to win Jack: A book about a dog where the dog doesn't die at the end. Please!!

    Thank you!

  32. WOW, the tall guy really did write a book and it's already hit!! Very cool!
    Now you guys will be really famous and for more than 3 seconds! BOL

  33. Oh Wow! I just downloaded your book, Jack, and it is terrific! My daughter and I were Ohhing and Ahhing throughout the pages! I can't wait to read it all! Well done to you and Tall Guy!!!
    Hope it sells a million!

  34. Jack, please can I enter your competition too. I would so love a chance to win your book. Even if I don't win it I am still very glad to be friends with a very famous Labrador. Maybe you could just send me your autograph :))
    Chrissie and Ben

  35. We want to win an autographed real book, too! So we're entering your contest. If we don't win, we'll still buy a real book on Amazon, but it won't have your pawtograph :( We can't wait for the rest of the writing advice. Mama won't even do a blog for us, so the chance of getting our own book is nil, but we're still interested. Hope you get a Platinum Book, or whatever they call it when you sell a million copies.

    Jed & Abby

  36. Darn! We thought we already comented. DUH. The Kindle version is good, butt we want your pawtigraph!!

  37. What do you mean, nothing like American Idol? I think it's JUST like American Idol. I thought the TG was really Simon Cowell....
