Internet Dogs Are Now “Writing” Books

Some say say that “cats rule the internet,” but we’d certainly say that dogs are just as big online. Sure a cat rode a Roomba dressed like a shark, but for every famous cat, there’s plenty of famous dogs. Instagram and other social media networks are ful of them. These dogs are so famous, they have their own books! There’s Lassie and Benji, but what about these fun pups? Here are several dogs you may have seen on Instagram and oher social media networks, and now their owners/mangers have compiled their best snapshots in adorable coffee table books.

Toast the King Charles Spaniel

Toast is a shelter King Charles Spaniel rescue without any teeth. This condition causes her to pop her tongue out all the time, and she’s quite the famous pooch! Having modeled for big names like Karen Walker, and hung out with Karlie Kloss, it was only natural that Toast get her own book. ToastHampton: How to Summer in Style is a collection of Toast and her amazing fashion photographs in the Hamptons.

Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo’s owner, Rafael Mantesso, had just been left by his wife on his 30th birthday. The apartment cleaned out of everything, Rafael and Jimmy Cho were left behind in a blank white box. Mantesso was inspired to photograph the dog in the empty space and eventually drew illustrations to accompany the dog – right on the white walls. Jimmy Choo became Superdog, a Star Wars stormtrooper and a shark, and all of the photos became Instagram darlings. Now the collection of new and previously-released images is in the book A Dog Called Jimmy.
