Hipster Puppies Playlist, by Christopher Weingarten

Now on shelves, Hipster Puppies is a window into the lives of alt-canines -- lovingly compiled by friend of County Grind and dogs everywhere, Christopher R. Weingarten.

A South Florida native, Weingarten now resides in Brooklyn. He decided

to take a lengthy side trip from music writing/ranting to pontificate

about the dogs he saw around the city on a Tumblr page with a name you can probably guess. For more on his inspiration for the book, check out our sibling blog Sound of the City's entry, and information on purchasing the book is here.

Throughout this thrilling and adorable read, Weingarten provides the inner monologue of dogs that most certainly have better

taste in music than you do. In the spirit of the pups who made this collection possible, Weingarten has assembled a playlist of eight songs and included commentary that'll prompt some yipping back and forth in the trendiest dog parks around the globe.
