Ladies and Gentlemen, my cute face is now in a new book! As you know I have done some modeling in the past with Barbara O’Brien. She decided to put together some of her favorite dog photos and create a book which she titled DOGFACE. I received an invitation to the book release party and was also asked to bring Mom along with me, how exciting! The party was held in a facility that normally holds dog training and agility classes, thus the odd decor.
Because Barbara is an animal person, she did ask that anyone coming to the party bring a donation for shelter pets. What a great idea that was! Look at the pile of stuff, and this was just at the beginning of the party! I helped Mom pick out a bag of food at the store before we went so we would have something tasty to donate.
Even though we arrived right when the party started, there was already a line to buy the book. I had to wait patiently like everyone else to buy my copy. Luckily, I did see several people that I know at the party, so while waiting we got to hang out and catch up which was fun. I also got tons of petting and attention from strangers wanting to know more about me. It’s a good thing I had Mom bring my business cards along as I gave out quite a few to new friends I met.
Finally we were at the table, and I was able to put my paws on the actual book. I only needed one copy for myself, so that is all I bought. Mom let me use my own money to buy the book which was fun. Now that I sometimes make some money, I can afford these types of “fun” purchases.
After getting my very own copy, I had to go through it and find myself. My photo is on the right hand side close to the back of the book. You can see the resemblance, can’t you? I’m using my serious look like I did in the book. It isn’t that I don’t want the other dogs in the book, but I put my paw over the other dog so people would focus only on me.
Next we had to get in line again to get my DOGFACE book signed by Barbara. I guess if you go to the book release party, and you know the author, it is proper to get their
pawtograph autograph. This line was really long! I’m thinking since I’m in the book, I should be able to go to the head of the line, but no. We waited around 45 minutes and I was getting bored as you can see. I kept looking up at Mom to ask how much longer.
Eventually, we made it to Barbara and she
pawed signed my book for me. I also got to take a nice photo with her and DOGFACE the book on the page with my photo. Once I had accomplished this, we were set to head home! Thank you Barbara for putting me in your book and for letting me bring my mom along to your book release party! Hope to see you in front of the camera again soon!
If you would like to get your own copy of DOGFACE, minus the
pawtograph autograph, it is available on Amazon.
