Fame. It's fleeting. Especially if you're a dog. Got to divide potential human fame-years by seven.
So today Laurel and I were thrilled to see Serena and Zu Zu prominently displayed at the top of page 6D in the Salem Statesman Journal. (Just five pages from page 1! And three sections from section A!)
Naturally you'll want to click on the image to enlarge our dogs closer to full size. And if you want to preserve the PetClick in another electronic form to become part of your Important Historical Archives, here's the PDF file.

The only disturbing aspect of this PetClick event is that I'd sent in a different photo to the Statesman Journal shortly before Laurel submitted this photo.
PetClick loves Laurel more than me! I'm devastated.
I'd gotten an email from PetClick central saying that on Friday, the 23rd, my photo could either be seen in the PetClick online archives (bad) or in the paper version of the Statesman Journal (good).
Optimist that I am, naturally I figured that today I'd be looking at my photo in the "real" newspaper. Except, my wife beat me out, pushing me into the online archives. I think... I couldn't even find my photo online.
Here it is, my loser photo.
Couldn't be my marvelous photographic iPhone skills, or the astounding cuteness of the "small dog parked under large dog" pose.
