Yes, my smiling dog is on a book cover. Ok, it's my book and this is my way of telling you what I've been doing lately. The book is titled "My Humor's Working (Even if I'm Not)" so you can guess that it's a collection of humorous short stories. Charley's smiling face on the cover also tells you that some of the stories about dogs. In fact, one of the stories is how Charley taught The Dude how to smile.
Additional stories are about working, not working, and other humorous observations. It is a message in keeping optimism alive during this recession. Enjoy the book.
