Well that was a bit of fun though nothing challenging. I think from the entire book there was only half a dozen pages of text while the rest is utter whimsey and indulgence. However Jimmy (or to give him his full name Jimmy Choo) is such a charming Bull Terrier you cannot help but smile and get drawn in.The book at its heart is catharsis for the author and photographer Rafael Mantesso who was left with little more than Jimmy after a messy break up. However this clean slate allowed something diff [...]

Rafael Mantesso, the author, makes clever use of his artwork using his bull terrier, Jimmy Choo, as the backdrop. There isn't much to read in this book, but the images of Jimmy Choo are entertaining.

A woman leaves a man and takes literarily everything except the dog. The dog wanders happily around the empty flat and the owner starts to take pictures of him having fun. Out of this an idea is born, to shot photos of the white dog in the white walled apartment with drawing that the photographer makes. When the photos make their way onto the Internet they become very popular. That is the story behind this book and I think it is pretty interesting, but it only takes up a few pages at the beginni [...]

Cat lovers have Grumpy Cat, and dog lovers have Jimmy Choo the Bull Terrier. Jimmy's dad, Brazilian author Rafael Mantesso brings dog lovers the canine answer to Grumpy Cat. His clever and creative picture book, 'A Dog Named Jimmy' is a laugh out loud collection of staged photographs. Mantesso was inspired by the blank emptiness of his walls after his wife left him and took everything except the dog. He began to draw imaginary worlds around Jimmy as he slept, creating hilarious compositions of t [...]

If you like dogs, you'll love A Dog Named Jimmy. After the author's, Rafael, wife left him, she took everything - but the dog, Jimmy Choo. Jimmy is the inspiration behind Rafael's clever and hilarious images that were popularized on Instagram. It's more than a picture book - it's a reminder that triumph often rises like a phoenix out of the ashes. Congratulations, Rafael and Jimmy. You deserve all of the attention you're getting!

I love this book. I hate this book. Jimmy Choo is darling. The author adores him. But after working in animal rescue (and seeing the absolute need of it first hand), it kills me to see a breeder praised in the acknowledgments! And for goodness sake, get that dog neutered! I have NO IDEA what Brazilian culture is surrounding thisbut as someone with 4 rescue dogs, two of which are bullies like Jimmy, it's just hard to get past these ideals. Nonetheless, Jimmy is the sweetest and, for that, I'll mo [...]

Thoughts I had while looking at this book:"Target Dog!""Dog balls.""Very pink dog balls.""He's like Jill (the squirrel), only he's a dog.""He looks like Snoopy there, even though he's a different kind of dog.""Waitle dogs have nipples? Or are they moles? No, they look like nipples. Going to have to google that.""Aww, I miss Wishbone!" (Different kind of dog, but the brown ears and white face made me think of him.)And lots of "Aww! Cute!" thoughts.

So cute. Such a quick little read. Love the story behind Jimmy--his name and social media presence. My favorite pictures in the book are the pictures featuring Jimmy in "the cone of shame." Definitely a fun read that truly proves a picture is worth a thousand words and shows that a dog is truly man's best friend.

Cute- but glad I checked it out from the library instead of buying. It didn't feel like there was much new here vs the inmates of jimmy that went viral online. I had expected a more interesting blend of writing and photography and was disappointed

A delightful picture book of Jimmy Choo, the Bull Terrier, as imagined in various situations by his person, Rafael Mantesso. Great photography of an adorable subject. If you like whimsy and/or dogs, you'll appreciate this book.
