My dog Shadow, Papillon, had 11 photos of him in a newly published book
on the Papillon breed. I was given photo credit in the front cover of
the book. One of the interesting things is that the author of the book,
Deb Woods, is a columnist for 'The Oregonian"; which I believe is the
Metro newspaper in MM's area.
My post to our pap list is below.\
The Handsome boy on page 35 of Deb Woods book is my boy Shadow. I
delayed saying anything about it until after we were able to have our
breeders, Dennis & Marty Hoeppner (DenMar), over to give them a copy of
the book. Marty is on the list and I didn't want to spoil the surprise.
Actually how my family found out about the book was a surprise to them
(& a bit to me) also. I knew the book was out, but didn't know if we
were in it. Over Christmas vacation we stopped by a Borders and I looked
for the book. They said they had one on Paps and that this was it (Debs
book). I opened the book and on page 25 is my son and Shadow. Also on
page 155 is my niece.
Anyway, I walked over to my son and asked if he knew who this boy and
dog were. Confusion and joy reigned for a while after. Of course we had
to buy a couple more (they weren't in stock however).
The caption on the last picture in the book is rather interesting, since
that was actually taken while we were on travel. Shadow had just got
done 'bossing' around his Golden cousins (pg 135) and decided it was
time for a nap; now that everything was in order.
BTW, his fringe is thin in the book compared to what he has now. (smug
