Book Jacket Summary
Corgnelius was living the good life with his owners in sunny Los Angeles—he was happy, healthy, likely the cutest corgi known to man and was the star of his own blog.

Then along came Stumphrey, a corgi puppy and Corgnelius's new brother. After a short-lived rough beginning, the two learned to share the spotlight and the blog became a sensation. Known for their fashion-forward style sense and love of adventure, Corgnelius and Stumphrey share their trials and tribulations as they navigate the great wide world, being extremely adorable wherever they go.

My Thoughts
I have been following Corgnelius on Facebook for a long time and as soon as I spied this book on NetGalley I knew I had to review it. This is one of many blogs that got a book deal but it is one of the few I would actually get (this and grumpy cat). Corgi's are some of the cutest dogs out there, with their little stubby legs and no tails. They still trot around like they own the world!   
Corgnelius spends his days having fun and dressing up for work until one day his owner brings home a puppy, Stumphrey. Who is this little puppy who eats all the food, hogs all the toys, and seeks all the attention? Who does Stumphrey think he is? 
Corgnelius is not sure what to think of this interloper but as time goes by they become thick as thieves in matching outfits. This is a cute look into the life one of my favorite celebrity dogs and his little brother. You could also look at this as what to do with a new baby. Corgnelius' whole perspective changed. The text is simple and the photos are adorable! I love dogs and this book just made me happy.
