Forget cutest dog ever. Boo may be the cutest anything ever. If this book doesn't put a smile on your face - no matter how old you are - then please stay far away from me. Maybe you're looking at the cover image and wondering if this is a real dog or just the world's cutest stuffed animal. Well, Boo's real. He's a six-year-old Pomeranian that truly has the world by the proverbial tail. That inimitable fashion style is actually the product of a hair-related crisis. When his hair got so long and knotted that it had to be shaved, Boo's signature teddy bear look was born. Realizing the cuteness factor at work here, Boo's human (who has wisely attempted to remain anonymous, using the pseudonym J. H. Lee) began posting pictures on Facebook, and thus was the phenomenon born. Celebrity fans like Ke$ha and Khloe Kardashian helped rocket Boo to mega-popularity, and I wasn't long before Boo made an appearance on Good Morning, America, had to deal with a "Boo death hoax" rumor, and - of course - published a book about his life.
Boo welcomes you right into his home in the pages of this book. It's just one incredibly cute picture after another of Boo napping, playing, chilling with his best friend Buddy, modeling some of his most fashionable outfits, and even enduring the most hated of all canine activities - a bath. Boo has faithfully captioned each picture so you can understand exactly what the life of the world's cutest dog is really like.
Despite his celebrity (as of this writing, Boo's likes on Facebook now number over 5.1 million), Boo's not resting on his laurels, like some nouveau riche celebrities have been known to do. In fact, Boo has just published his second book, Boo: Little Dog in the Big City
, and he has joined the executive team at Virgin America as their "official pet liaison." Despite his jet-setting ways and worldwide fame, though, Boo continues to enjoy the simple things in life, such as a satisfying meal, a romp with his best friend, and of course a good nap. We could all learn a lot from this canine ambassador of happiness.
