Hounded by the Puparazzi!

Dear Readers,

It seems you just can’t get away from them.  I have been constantly hounded lately by the media.

First, Momma’s hometown paper, the Gonvick Leader Record, published a nice puff piece about my new book in its supplement, the Tri County Canary.  It appeared on the front page — and above the fold!  (Once you are a media darling, it doesn’t take long to learn the lingo.)   I don’t have a link to the story, but here’s a photo of it in the paper.  I’m sure if you want a copy, I can dig one up.  (Smiley emoji.)


Then, in late November, the Burnsville Sun-This Week (our current home-town paper) once again ran a front page article on us.  Mr. John Gessner, the editor, did a great job, except that he let Momma ramble on a bit about politics, and she even managed to mention Rush Limbaugh and Fox News.  She should be put on a leash.

And what can I woof about Mr. Gessner’s writing – he “gets” us!  Who else would describe Sit Stay Pray, as 47 bite-size chapters about life?  He did such an outstanding job of reviewing the book, that if I hadn’t written it, I’d buy it!  Here’s a link in case you want to “read all about it!”


Then just before Christmas, the Bemidji Pioneer published an article on Sit Stay Pray, too.  I think the author, Matthew Liedke – who did a fantastic job — grasped my role in the whole thing (“Pup puts pen to paper — tells story in blog and books”).  I just wonder if there might be room for a little doggie statue next to Paul and Babe down by the lake.  Here’s a link to that story.


So, you can see, dear readers, this has been a very good year for Momma and me, and we couldn’t be more grateful.  We want to thank you for supporting the Animal Humane Society and Helping Paws Minnesota with the purchase of our books.

May you have a tail-waggingly good 2020.

Lina, Lucky Dog
