So this week’s WTF Wednesday is a little different. Instead of bringing you some ludicrous dog-related product, BusyBee has decided to tell you a little story.
So about two weeks ago I got a random message from Potnoodle asking me if I knew that Mr. T had been in the September issue of Dog Fancy. After I assured that no, that wasn’t possible, she told me how she had been sitting in a vet office waiting room flipping through the backlogs of magazines. While perusing the September issue, she nearly fell over when she spotted Mr. T’s giant head staring back at her on the page, at which point she stole (borrowed?) the page and messaged me.
How does one’s dog end up in a magazine without you knowing, you ask? Well, a friend who works for the city submitted an application for their “Dogtown USA” contest over a year ago and as part of the application she asked a bunch of us for photos of our dog out and about. Having never heard anything from the magazine, we assumed we hadn’t been chosen and totally forgot about it. That is, until, Potnoodle randomly stumbled upon Mr. T’s picture in a crumpled waiting room magazine. I literally would never have known that our town had been named a runner-up and that Mr. T was featured had Potnoodle been bored in a vet waiting room that happened to have an old copy of the magazine. Woah.
So, for your viewing pleasure, here is Mr. T’s magazine debut. I just hope it doesn’t go to his head…
