From the Dog Lady’s Mail Box

Did you ever wonder what kind of mail a blogger gets?  Aside from wonderful notes from readers, I also get stuff like this.  

 First up:  from Matt at Period Media: 

Hi Beth! 

The Urban Pet is a great chain of dog stores based in the LA area.  Each location has over 5,000 wonderful pet supply options for dogs, cats, fish, and reptiles, including a wide range of organic and eco friendly products. Zack Grey (the owner of the store) also happens to be an accredited dog trainer, specializing in both group and private lessons.

Next, from Nancy at Fucini Productions, under the subject line of “Contests for you and your readers to enter!”

And, last but not least, from MacMillan Publishing:

THE FIRST PUP:  The Real Story of How Bo Got to the White House, written and illustrated by Bob Staake  

When Barack Obama stepped into office, he promised his daughters Sasha and Malia – and all the dog-lovers in America – that there was going to be a puppy in the White House. This is the REAL story of how Bo got to the White House.  

Helicopters whirled in the circles above! Television cameras filmed from high in the sky! Reporters called their newspapers! Web sites around the world instantly posted photos! Spectators along the White House’s iron fence cheered wildly! The news was official: The First Family now had its FIRST PUP!  

On the pup’s one year anniversary in the White House, Bob Staake has illustrated and written an adorable story about the furry pup that everyone can’t help but love. Bob Staake is an illustrator who has worked on everything from greeting cards to magazine covers, most notably Reflections, one of the most popular covers in the New Yorker’s history. He has also written and illustrated over 20 children’s books, including The Donut Chef and Pets Go Pop!  THE FIRST PUP is based on his 4/27/2009 New Yorker Magazine cover art spotlighting Bo’s welcome to the White House. Visit Bob Staake and see exclusive content from the book in the FIRST PUP book trailer.

So, now you know

Until next time
Good day, and good dog!
