When the book became available on pre-order, though, I wasn't that excited. I thought - I read the blog, why do I want another book around the house? I'll probably read it once and then never look at it again. But in a moment of weakness (and love of dachshunds), I purchased it, and I am so glad I did.
The book itself has a sturdy feel to it. I can open it to a page, and it stays open so I can leave it open to my favorite picture/story of the day. The cover isn't a paper jacket that will tear, but a sturdy cover that will hold up to dog slobber and rough wear.
The content includes high quality photos, interesting graphics, and excellent writing. I actually sat down and read it all the way through the day after I received it. (I kept saying, just one more story.....) And I have dipped into it several times since then, "forcing" family members to look at the adorable Crusoe the Sushi Chef or Crusoe does Italian! I think what makes this different from other dog books is the great writing. Even if you aren't a dachshund lover, you will enjoy the fun this dog has, and his droll sense of humor. If you aren't sure, read a couple of blogs and see if you like this style of writing. Then go buy the book. You won't be sorry. In fact, I need to buy another one for my SIL for Christmas.
It was so worth the anticipation and every dime I spent on it. As a long time Crusoe fan, (he's my favorite celeb, hands down!) this book is an absolute treasure. The photographs were really high quality and unbelievably adorable with cute captions that let Crusoe's personality shine through. As a dachshund owner, I know how unique and special every little sausage dog is and Ryan Beauchesne does such a great job capturing the voice and shine of his dachshund extraordinaire, Crusoe. While I enjoyed the whole book and found myself giggling and squealing multiple times, my favorite chapter was "Date Night, Bachelor Edition" (Oh my goodness, could this book be any cuter!?) And please don't tell Crusoe, but the picture of baby Oakley made me melt like no other!
'Crusoe, the Celebrity Dachshund: Adventures of the Wiener Dog Extraordinaire' is a wonderful keepsake for Crusoe fans and/or dog lovers in general. ☆☆☆☆☆
I can't say enough great things about Crusoe's first book. Reading about his adventures put a smile on my face. Such a personality! Such a handsome dog! Such adventure and fun!
We have a black and tan Dachshund named Tyler in our family, who is very much like Crusoe- fun, happy, energetic and awesome. I tried to read 2 pages a day, just so it wouldn't end -and I look forward to re-reading it over and over, and to Crusoe's second book! Maybe on the next book tour he'll come to the Baltimore/Washington area. We LOVE Crusoe!!
