You have more self control than I do if you stifled that laugh.

I understand your expected formula on dog books. Years ago, I came across Dara: The Autobiography of a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. It walked a straight line between being sugar sweet and overly intense, not really achieving either. It was interesting to read a non-human POV, but it didn't seem very doglike, which I think would have added more of the flavor the author was going for.
