“Real Dogs Cook” Book Give-Away! “Spaghetti for Sheepdogs” by John Morris

If you are a regular reader of our blog you will know that I have been featuring the clever culinary cookbook creations of author John Morris, which can be found on the website,  Real Dogs Cook!

The first book I featured was Pastry for Poodles, then we had Barbeque for Bulldogs and today I am happy to bring you Spaghetti for Sheepdogs, as told  by Mona Lassie Buonarroti!

Dakota was particularly excited with this book in the series because it features one of his pals, The Old English Sheepdog!  Old English Sheepdogs and Shetland Sheepdogs have one main thing in common, that is the job of “keeping everyone together and safe, it’s in their blood!!”

About Spaghetti for Sheepdogs

Mona Lassie’s almost lost track of how many grand-pups she has, but they light up her life whenever they’re around. And the one thing she knows they’ll be needing, whenever they’re close underfoot, is GOOD FOOD!

So here’s a sample of some of the recipes you’ll find in her book, dishes she knows her own grand-pups never get tired of:

“Bruno’s Firehouse Favorite: Baked Rigatoni & Baby Meatballs.”


“Nonna Mona’s Luscious lasagna: Vegetable Medley della Modena.”


Don’t you wish you were going over to her house tonight for dinner? Well, the next best thing is visiting her tomorrow, when you and she can cook up a storm– just the two of you– and she can introduce you to all sorts of wonderful Italian flavors and scents! There’s even a gelato recipe to round things out!


All of the  cookbooks in the series are meant to be funny and they are! They are written in the same hilarious manner,  with plays on words, sensational sarcasm and tail-waggin’ humor! If you are a foodie (and what woofie isn’t?), and your human likes to laugh and have fun, THIS BOOK, (AND THE ENTIRE SERIES  IS FOR YOU!!!!) DID YOU KNOW THAT ALL OF THE RECIPES CAN ACTUALLY BE MADE AND EATEN!? Yep, they sure can be! I have yet to try one, but I fully intend to. So many of these recipes look delicious! I think I can figure out the lingo too! I bet “5 paws” of butter means 5 “pats” of butter, and 1 scoop of mozzarella cheese might be a cup?

If you fantasize about slurping spaghetti with your sweetie in some seedy back alley, that’s fine. But Chef Mona can introduce you to dozens of better ways to conquer his heart. And we’re not talking day-old pizza, either!
