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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Well Done Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund has always been about the well-crafted and humorous stories of the adorable Crusoe and his many adventures at home and while travelling abroad. The adventures come to life with the expression of the human-like big personality of Crusoe and with the vivid imagery (photos, videos) and the costumes and props that accompany the stories. This first book "Adventures of the Weiner Dog Extraordinaire Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund", written by owner Ryan Beauchesne and spoken in the voice of Crusoe, is a treasure trove of comical short stories, ridiculous recipes (if you can call them that!), and witty doggy dialogues that bring a chuckle and warmth to your heart after the trials of your day. The book is suitable for individuals of all ages (big and little kids!) and dog lovers and not-so-much dog lovers alike. This makes a great reasonably priced gift for the holiday season and of course a permanent keepsake for yourself. Absolutely well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The book fans have been demanding is here!!! How did I end up with a crush on a dachshund? After meeting Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund, you will understand! Crusoe makes me smile every single day. (Since I have his calendar he starts my day out right!) Cru's dad and mum have done a phenomenal job on the book fans were demanding! They introduced us to Cru in on-line videos/vines as well as their blog. With Crusoe's amazing personality, expressions and over all 'Hunk-dom", he was destined for stardom. The book is chock full of stories, Crusoe's adventures, wonderful pictures, recipes (yes!!) and an aura of happiness---it's hard to imagine how they did it between the hardcovers of this book. Those of you who know our beloved Celebrity will be thrilled to have this book to go over again and again....those who may have just stumbled across this title? First of all, where have you been? Second, buy this book! You'll be so glad you did! (and what a bargain...get two, one to keep and one to share....I did!) You will also see great pics of sweet Oakley, Crusoe's brother, a doll in his own right;). When together, they make quite a team! Disclaimer: I DID meet Crusoe during his book tour stop in Dallas, and his charisma is hypnotic, I may or may not be under his spell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE CRUSOE!!! I pre-ordered this book, and am very pleased! I am not a person you will find easily on social media - no facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. However, this little dog's blog caught my eye about 2 years ago, and I've been in love with him ever since. A true dachshund lover myself, it was easy to be drawn to his ample magnetism! This book is the perfect solution for anyone, whether needing a laugh after a stressful day, or for family and friends entertainment on your coffee table, or a great bedtime story for the kids. I look forward to more posts Crusoe, keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have for the Mini-Dachsund lover!!! I preordered Crusoe's book here at Indigo a while back because I have really enjoyed his adventures online. This book didn't disappoint! Beautiful, rich illustrations that follow the hilarious adventures of his multiple alter-egos in such a fun way. Reading it is an adventure in itself. There is something special about this personable little dog that captures my imagination and those of his many fans around the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOOOOOOOOOVE CRUSOE!!!!!! I was thrilled to get Crusoe's first book last week. I've always known he was brilliant, but his book was more than I expected. So many wonderful pictures & stories of our boy on his adventures. Crusoe's book would be a wonderful gift for anyone for any occasion. I just ordered the 2016 Crusoe calendar.

Editorial Reviews

"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"There's a new celebrity chef on the scene and he's got a paw up on the competition." -Huffington Post"Too cute for words." -Food Network"If cuteness is a crime, [this dog is] guilty." -Mashable"All in all, he crushes life." -Buzzfeed"Are we a little obsessed with him? Yes." -BarkPost
