#WeRateDogs: The Most Hilarious and Adorable Pups You’ve Ever Seen

It was inevitable that the social media breakout by Matt Nelson would become a book. Based on his Twitter account, #WeRateDogs: The Most Hilarious and Adorable Pups You’ve Ever Seen (Skyhorse Publishing hardcover; October 3, 2017; $15.99) features the most heroic, over-the-top adorable, wildly successful, all-around entertaining dogs the world has ever seen. It combines extraordinary photos with ridiculous captions to expand the knowledge and overall lives of its readers. It is not only an exceptionally reliable source for dog greatness; it is also a one-stop shop for happiness, one that Skyhorse takes great pride in publishing.

Sure to be a huge holiday favorite, this book will take readers on a journey through the science of dog rating and the unwavering rules associated with it. Questioning the accuracy of these ratings is ill-advised. They are certainly not arbitrary and this book is absolutely not just about how cute dogs are. It truly is all about ethics in dog rating.

The #WeRateDogs book will produce an audible reaction with every flip of the page—whether a groan from a terrible pupper pun or an “aww” of seeing a super floofer. If #WeRateDogs takes you away from reality and pushes you into this conglomerate of absurdity for even a second, then it has fulfilled its purpose.
