Remember this photo from this blog post?
Well, it just so happens that the dog, Davy Whippet, and his owner, Rob McLeod, set a world record for the longest flying disc throw caught by a canine later that year (2012). Apparently, Rob felt that the best photo snapped of his four-legged buddy was the one above. So he got me and the “Guinness Book of World Records 2014” peeps together via e-mail.
Guess whose photo is published in a book for the first time? Yep, little, old me!
Check out page 40, the first of the “Dazzling Dogs” section. There’s my pic halfway down (albeit flipped horizontally).
Plus I got a photo credit. And $125 that was wired to my bank from London. Yep, the one in England!
I’ve had photos published before in various newspapers, magazines, and catalogs. But this is the ultimate for me, so far.
Looks like my 15 minutes of world-record fame has been sealed forever!
