My dog is cute, this I know

The last couple of days have been pretty blegh, as I’m sure you’ve noticed from my post below. Work has been so busy for me and this presentation is seriously no fun to work on. I was finally able to finish the paper, so that was a small blip of good – until I realized, of course, that the presentation isn’t done yet… To add to my dreary mood, it’s supposed to snow tonight and then mix with sleet in the morning and rain the afternoon. It just gets better and better, no?

Basically, I just haven’t been feeling all that up and happy lately. So it was a welcome surprise when I received some really awesome news by e-mail! I just had to share with the blog because it made me smile and call a bunch of family members and actually did bring a little bit of sunshine to my otherwise dull day! And just what was this miracle happy drug e-mail? It turns out that this photo contest for a dog magazine that I entered forever ago (I actually had sort of forgotten about it, to tell you the truth) just finished and I was one of the winners!!! I am so excited about this! I don’t get anything special out of it, but Kubrick’s photo will be published in Modern Dog magazine and they will send me a free copy of it. I know this isn’t huge as I’m not winning anything per se, but it really did brighten up my day and I think it’ll be great to see Kubrick in print too!

What picture won, you ask? Well, it’s one that I’ve already posted on this blog, though it was a while ago. I’ve actually gotten so many comments about this picture – check out the goofy look on Kubrick’s face – and I’m really glad they picked it, because it’s one of my all-time favorites!

Oh and just wanted to add that, yes, it’s okay to laugh at him in this picture… Kubrick’s a good sport, he won’t mind. 😉

    That’s awesome! Congratulations!

    I wanted to ask- would you be interested in test knitting that sock pattern of mine? There would, of course, be stitch markers in it for you 😉 Sorry for not asking earlier, I kept thinking I already had!

    Here’s hoping his celebrity status doesn’t go to his head. : )
