"This book rounds up some of the most telling examples of the American sense of humor during our age of great laughter--from Revolutionary times when its voice began to burst out clearly, through the turmoil of the Frontier and Civil War periods when it was at its most exuberant, to the 1890's when it was in danger of prattling itself into whimsy and commercial jokesmithing." -page xi

Rhubarb is a riotous, bawdy, and often slapstick story about a large yellow cat who, according to numerous complaints, had been assaulting dogs, stealing tennis balls, stalking mailmen, and attacking Macy's trucks.

The book of Joe; about a dog and his man by Vincent Price( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the tradition of classic dog stories like Anna Quindlen's Good Dog. Stay. and J.R. Ackerley's My Dog Tulip, actor Vincent Price shares the heartwarming tale of his fourteen-year love affair with his mischievous yet endearing mutt Ju Actor Vincent Price won acclaim for his performances as a menacing villain in dozens of macabre horror films, such as House of Wax. Less well known, though, is Price's lifelong love of animals, especially his fourteen-year-old mutt, Ju. From his wife's passion for poodles to film set encounters with all types of creatures, including goats, apes, and camels, Price's life was full of furry, four-legged friends. But it was Ju who truly captured his heart. Intelligent, courageous, and devoted to his owner, Ju was a special dog with a personality all his own. In this touching and light-hearted memoir, with a new introduction by Bill Hader and a preface by Vincent Price's daughter, Victoria, Ju gets involved in all sorts of hijinks: At one point, the actor has to defend his canine companion in court! Despite some bad habits, like stealing guests' shus, pursuing lustful trysts with neighboring dogs, or belly flopping into the garden fishpond-crushing more than a few fish-Price loves his Joselito, whose unconditional loyalty more than makes up for his minor indiscretions. And when Price's elderly cousin who comes to stay with him is stricken with cancer, Ju never leaves her side. Price's tender and witty recollections of his time spent with Ju will bring joy to any animal lover's heart. The Vincent Price Family Legacy will donate a portion of the proceeds from this book to the Fund for Animals
