woman's world magazine

A few months back a research editor for Woman's World magazine emailed me regarding the article that I wrote for the Toronto Star newspaper about Sophie and I. She thought it was a story that their readers might be interested in and so: Sophie and I have a feature article about us in the issue that will be on sale this Monday, July 20th!


I have not seen the article (that will be very much based on the Star piece, although I did not author this one) nor have I seen the photos (of Sophie and I) selected from the shoot, but hopefully it turns out well and some of their readers connect with and enjoy the story.



The magazine is available in Canada and the US, but does not currently host an online presence. I will attempt to scan and post the article here for all of Sophie's international fans. :) The power of dog love....of how it touches people's lives, of how it makes this world a better place to live in...I will never get tired of being a part of that story, or of sharing that story, every chance I get.

Selba said...

Congratulations to be featured in the woman's world magazine! It's really a great news.

Ms. Alpha really wants to read your article and see the photos. In fact, she scanned back a few blogs and was completely bowled over by your pics of Sophie. That one about being "true to who you are" is both brilliant and haunting. It really captured Sophie's soul. And we love the one of Sophie gliding through the water.

Thanks for the big grins you just gave us! And congrats on being published by a big magazine!

Your pal,
Fenway

Hey GF, Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It's been a crazy busy summer for me too and have not kept up w/postings and commenting as I'd like.

Congratulations! I think it's awesome that you have been able to share your story in so many different venues. God is blessing you richly and has wonders untold ahead for you.

One of my fav pics of Sophie is posted on 6/30 where she's swimming in the calm water, making a wake. It's beautiful....I love her reflection in the water.

Blessings, SusanD

I love the way your life keeps proving out over and over again that when one door closes, another opens.

How wonderful! Great exposure for you too. When one door closes God opens another door with many more paths to take. You are very blessed to have taken such a great path. Continued good luck.
