They spend their time sniffing around local farmer's markets, pawing through stacks of vinyl at the record store, and making biting remarks at the caf�. They're hipster puppies-and they're always snarky, impeccably accessorized,

this is my math:

books with pictures of puppies = 5 stars
books making fun of hipsters = 5 stars

animals in clothes = negative a million stars.

god i hate animals in clothes, i really do. and like Stuff on My Mutt, a lot of this is just dogs wearing glasses or sunglasses. occasionally a scarf. so original.

however - two doggies reading Infinite Jest is more than okay with me.

and while it is true that many of the captions are not funny, you gotta admit "rocko has the most enviable collection of unrea

A unique social commentary, specifically regarding Brooklyn, NY but encompassing a wider spectrum as well. This book features photos of dressed up dogs (and one cat that slipped in there)paired with captions that might describe someone you know. You will see lots of pups in glasses, hats, scarves and bandannas. You will see a smaller number of pups with shoes, sweaters, bags, headphones, alcohol, and books. You will see a small fraction of these photos featuring dogs on bikes and skateboards.

Got this at the book launch event at PowerHouse Arena in Brooklyn, home of hipsters galore. The event was the "Hipster Puppy Pageant" - where some of the dogs actually featured in the book were on parade. The judge was the author, and he signed books after. So, I ended up buying a book that normally would have just made me laugh and move on when I saw it in stores.

It's not much of a read, but the captions and photos are great, and the author's intro is hilarious.

A few of my favorite captions (no

Hipster Puppies fits alongside books like Elgin Park and Mo’ Urban Dictionary in that it’s a non-fiction book that’s based on a popular internet site. Here, Weingarten collects the funniest photos and captions of Hipster Puppies from the viral blog site, presenting them in full-page spreads that feature a single photo with a single caption.

It’s reasonably amusing, and a fun, quick read – I read it in one sitting on the bus, on my way to work. I wouldn’t go out of your way to get a copy of it, bu

Obviously I’m giving it a 5 star review because it’s cute-ass dogs and NOT just because my dog (RIP Topper) is featured in it. Lots of fun, a quick read, and cute pics.

Cute photos. A quick, fun read/flip through. I'm kinda OK with the fact that I didn't understand some of the references in the photo captions.

The reason that I gave this book four stars is that it was just what I needed at the time. I was in the hospital for a six hour operation. I did not need complicated text while in pain, I needed something very simple and heartwarming. A good deal of the pictures had dogs wearing glasses, I am tired of that but I loved the pictures of dogs all bundled up in warm scarves. I think that the pictures were better than the captions so I ended up ignoring most of them.

This book makes an excellent gift f

Considering the type of book that it was: funny pictures of dogs dressed up as hipsters with captions, this was pretty good and clever. I even laughed out loud a few times! And...I did find it ironic to find this book in the nonfiction section under puppies in the library! But hey, I guess it's the Truf!

Also, my hubby, would have given it 4 out of 5 it's possible that I'm being's possible...but I'm sticking by my original 3 out of 5 rating.

Although the dog on the cover is hipster-ish, most of the dogs inside just have bandanas on or are sitting adjacent to "hip" objects like slr cameras. Not even the snarky comments are that funny (e.g. "Fifi wants to know the sitch with the toilets at the art show because she's on her power cleanse" next to a picture of a dog with a red sweater). Meh.

I loved the Hipster Puppies website when it first came out... and was super excited when the coffee table book became a reality! I think this is simply hilarious. Cute dogs, witty sayings, and hipster-bashing make this funny little coffee table book worth reading.

I confess that I wasn't clear on hipster culture. The dogs were cute but the rest was boring.

C'mon. It's my favorite thing (puppies) making fun of my least favorite thing (hipsters).

Who doesn't love puppies? And especially puppies making fun of hipsters?

PETA on the author. What are those activist doing when poor animals are dressed up in such horrid manner squeezed in "funny" clothes for some demented fun. Seriously poor animals.
