Book Review & Giveaway: I Has a Hotdog

I am the biggest pushover when it comes to dogs. I'm a sucker for their big brown eyes, wagging tails, puppy kisses and soft wet noses. I get all mushy inside when I look at those puppy calendars at the book store, and get weepy at those Humane Society commercials about sick, injured and abandoned dogs. Dogs sense this about me...and take advantage of  it - stealing my pork tenderloin and sleeping in the bed (Luuuucie! lol...all 79 lbs of her!), getting treats, toys, and other priveledges. I can't help it. They're so darn cute!


I was fortunate enough to receive a complimentary review copy of the delightfully hilarious & totally adorable book "I Has a Hotdog" by Professor Happycat (Ben Huh) & IHasaHotdog.com from Hatchette Book Group.  This little book is full of the cutest photos of over 200 LOLdogs telling it like it is - when it comes to noms (good eats), toys, cats, sleeping, life, and their people. The captions are a comical riot - words mirthfully misspelled as if our canine pals wrote them and exactly what we dog lovers imagine they would say, if they could really talk! The photos and captions in this collection bring to life the glee of just being a dog, and the joy of being their humans. I couldn't stop laughing and smiling as I flipped through this book. It's a great stress buster, a conversation starter and would make a fun gift for just about anyone! If you weren't a dog lover before...you just might be after reading this book! You've gotta check it out!

Where have I been??! I have to admit I have seen the author's site FAIL Blog, but hadn't seen the others - The Cheezburger Network, I Has a Hotdog, and  I Can Has a Cheezburger?  Well - I'm addicted now! LOL You can find so many hilarious things, LOLCats a LOLbuilder, the LolMart and so much more. What a laugh riot!! There's not a dull page to be found.  You can read the bio for Ben aka Professor Happycat at Hatchette Book Group's site. For more laughs become Ben's fan on Facebook.

I LOVE LOLDOGS! In fact I often find myself captioning pictures of my own pup Riley in that fashion....

I love the picture with a cute lil black pup holding his paw up saying "High Fours!" It made me chuckle, and there is nothing cuter than a puppy!

These are all so cute! My favorite is a picture of a dog "petting" a cat, and the captions states "PETTING: Your doing it wrong"

There were several funny ones. My four year old was sitting next to me when I looked at it and he was laughing and laughing. I bookmarked the site and we will be returning to check out the dogs on a regular basis.
