Crusoe, the Celebrity Dachshund: Adventures of the Wiener Dog Extraordinaire - Ryan Beauchesne

This review was originally posted on One Curvy Blogger

My obsession with Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund began the way many addictions begin for me: my mother tagged me in a Facebook post. It was a cold and windy Saturday and I was developing an icky sinus infection. My mom and I were on our way home from a get-better-soon shopping trip to Barnes and Noble and I noticed a notification on my Facebook App. The moment I saw that adorable video of Crusoe in an Easter bunny costume, I was hooked! I quickly subscribed to his Facebook page, tracked down his blog, and once I learned he had written a book, well, I WAS SOLD. I guess Mom got tired of dealing with my drool stains, because she was kind enough to buy me a copy of his book!

When Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund finally showed up I was in wiener dog heaven. Here is a sneak peek at what you might find between the pages of his book:




There is so much to enjoy in Crusoe's "memoir." He tells us stories from his childhood, stories about growing up in the country and takes us along with him on some wacky adventures! My personal favorite moments from the book is when he dons his chef hat and cooks us up something yummy! Crusoe has many hobbies and the best part is probably all his little outfits!

Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund is such an original read! When you read through it like I did, it can seem a bit slow, but I couldn't miss Crusoe's adorable (albeit slightly unreliable and very biased) narration! :D I felt as if Crusoe was really telling his story. I also enjoyed meeting the rest of his furry family, Oakley (his wiener dog brother from another mother) and Laffie, the French Brittany Spaniel who was like a mother figure to him.

I hope Crusoe continues to write about his many extraordinary adventures, because he has made a life-long fan of me. You can also check out his blog (link in author bio) to get a sneak peek on his writing style. I recommend this book to EVERYONE! Pet lovers, kids, adults, wiener dog enthusiasts (such as myself). This book could appeal to all who loves a little humor mixed with adorable animal adventure!
