Simba often communicates with me with his dog language. He let’s me know when he needs to go outside by going to the door and standing there. Sometimes he will even put his paws on the door as if to tell me to hurry up and let him out. If he’s hungry or wants a treat he will go to the pantry door and jump up and down. When he’s thirsty and his water bowl is empty he will paw at it. To show me how much he missed me when I return home he will jump up and down and run around the house.

If My Dog Could Talk
If my dog could talk I wonder what he would say? First of all, he’d probably ask me why I won’t share my food with him. Because he hates baths he’d probably tell me he’d prefer not to take one and ask why humans take one all of the time anyway. Maybe he’d even ask why us humans walk on two legs and not four…isn’t that tiring? I’m sure he’d be very inquisitive and probably even a little whiny. What do you think your dog would say if he could talk?
I See Me! has just released their first personalized book for dogs, If My Dog Could Talk. The hubs and I was so excited to receive this book to read to our daughters. I knew they would be absolutely shocked to see a dog on the cover and throughout the book that looked like their very own dog.

Our Thoughts on If My Dog Could Talk
I didn’t tell the girls about the book at all. When I received the opportunity to personalize the book, I kept it a secret! I personalized the book to include Simba’s name and the name of the girls. I was also able to upload two personal photos which included one of Simba and the girls and one by himself. When choosing how I wanted Simba to look, I unfortunately didn’t see a Schnauzer dog style. I decided to choose a dog that resembled Simba the most and just choose the color white. I was still satisfied with my result even though technically he didn’t quite resemble a Schnauzer. Once I was finished personalizing everything, I was able to preview the book and it looked amazing!
The gift set arrived in about a week or so and I couldn’t wait for the girls to unbox it! I was very pleased with how the book turned out. My girls absolutely loved all of the illustrations and how everyone was included in the story. The rhyming made the story fun and it really seemed like our dog would say a lot of what was mentioned in the book. My oldest daughter was amazed that Simba’s name was on his collar, his dog bowl, and so many other things. She also loved that an actual bandana and food placemat was included just for Simba.
If you’re a dog lover this is a must have! Personalization is all throughout the book and it is so beautifully made. Children and adults would love to receive this as a gift. Watch the girls unbox the gift set and see their reaction! I also read the book out loud to them as well so make sure you watch the entire video to get a feel for the book.
