Your Dog is Cold
Tomorrow the first snow is expected in Chicago. I've been doing some scrutiny about dogs being dressed outside, and it's pretty shameful. The wind is whipping over Lake Michigan, it's cold, the owner is bundled up, and the little dog is left naked. We're ready here. I'm also having one of my best seasons ever at a shop downtown. I guess people who have money are still spending it, thankfully. I have to replenish my stock, which is a rare occurance.
I was a little bummed out to see the current issue of The Bark magazine. There was an article about knitting, that featured a book that wasn't Doggie Knits. I had asked the publicity department at my publisher to send a book/press kit to them. I wonder if they followed through. It seems to me that an opportunity was missed. I would be happy to do some more promotion for Doggie Knits, but I have no connections. Isn't that what a publicist is for?
