We're Famous!

Okay not really but we are going to be a magazine! Cool huh?

Here's the story: About a month ago, I saw this twitter post from @petwriter - Looking for foster families to interview who wound-up adopting the animal in their care. Story for Rally to Rescue mag. Please DM if int... Since we just recently adopted our very first foster dog, Scooter, I twittered back. I thought it would be a cool thing if by chance this writer wanted to write about us and our newest addition! Well, she did! @petwriter interviewed me over the phone and week or two later, an article was email to me for approval. It is several short stories, each about a paragraph long, about different adoption stories. Our story is called "Becoming Best Friends" about it's about Scooter and Conner becoming best buds!

After I read the article and sent it back approved, the editor called me on Friday and asked that we have our pictures professionally taken and sent back to her by MONDAY! This was crazy weekend to have a photo shoot but we managed to squeeze it in between early church and the Cowboys/Chiefs game (Thank GOODNESS for DVR!)

I quickly started calling photographer friends in a frenzy!~ The editor offered to line one up for me, but I mentioned that I had a few friends I might could call. Grant Harrison came through for me. We did a quick last minute shoot at McArthur Park in Little Rock and I think they came out great! What do you think??
