A New York Times Bestseller

What?! You've never heard of Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund?! You must be living under a rock!
... Or at least that's what Crusoe thinks. He's the self-proclaimed "wiener dog who thinks he's more of a celebrity than he really is." (until now!) Crusoe is the star of his wildly popular blog of the same name, winner of the 2013 and 2014 Best Pet Blog Award. That's right... two years in a row! Because Crusoe is a talented and ridiculously photogenic miniature dachshund with a big personality, stunning fashion sense, and an insatiable penchant for whimsy. Perhaps you know him better by his infamous alter ego, BATDOG? We thought so.

This is Crusoe's New York Times bestselling book debut, and he's so excited to share it with all of his adoring fans. Now everyone can stare lovingly into his big brown eyes and admire his wit and many costumes any time they choose. Crusoe is certain that his book, featuring hundreds of photos, will make the perfect gift for dog-lovers of all ages. He wants to be accessible to his fans so you can really get to know the mutt behind the mask, the pooch behind that signature sexy pout, the pup with a heart of gold.

Don't miss these amazing photos and stories:
The adventures of BATDOG and Robin;
Cooking with Crusoe;
Dr. Crusoe, the dentist, and malpractice;
International travels with the worldliest of adventure dogs;
Fishing with Crusoe and twin brother Oakley;
Dating advice from the studly pup himself;
Walking in a winter wienerland;

...And many more!

"Crusoe, a 5-year-old miniature dachshund, has made a name for himself with his award-winning blog. Now his wit, wisdom and undeniable charm are on display in print form. There are even recipes, and the photo of Crusoe in his chef's hat alone may be worth the price of the book."—Chicago Tribune

“Too cute for words.” —Food Network

“If cuteness is a crime, [this dog is] guilty.” —Mashable
