Blueberry Steals The Spotlight

It appears that Blueberry hasn't been getting as much attention lately as a few other hounds around here.  However, it appears that her beautiful good looks have stolen her the spotlight yet again.  There's something about her that really captivates people's attention.

There have been several times over the course of our life with Blueberry when we've been asked to use her pictures for artwork.  She's been painted and made into digital art.  People often comment about how pretty she is, and I have to agree.  Even though I'm biased, I do have to say that I'd think she was beautiful even if she didn't live with me.

Recently, we were contacted by an author who is writing a fictional book about a Greyhound named Lacey Blue.  He asked if we'd be willing to let him use Blueberry's picture on the cover of his book and on his blog.  We were thrilled to do so.  While we won't get any sort of royalties for allowing her to be Lacey Blue, we were happy to help.  The author does intend to allow groups to use the book as a fundraiser, which makes us happy. 

The book, Lacey Blue and Friends, is due to be released on November 1 of this year and it will be available at Amazon and as an ebook for various devices.  It will also be released as an audio book.  We're thinking about trying to give away a copy of the book here on the blog, but we haven't worked out the details yet.

Hopefully, this doesn't all go to Blue's head and she won't start making ridiculous demands on us like some hounds around here!  I can't imagine who that would be...

  1. Wow!!!!!!!

    I think that khalls fur extra cheese!


  2. I have a weakness for blue Greys myself, and Bunny is a beautiful example. My first Grey was a blue brindle. :)

  3. I'll be straight onto Amazon to pre-order.

  4. What an honor for Blueberry! (and her magnificent owners) The cover of her very own book.... We are very jealous of her dashing good looks and the leaves in the first pic really stand out wonderfully against her shiny gray coat :)

  5. Wow. Isn't that just wonderful news??
    Well, I can't wait to see Blueberry in the shops!

  6. hahah that's very cool... you have a famous puppy!

  7. Blueberry appears to have a certain serenity accompanied by a regal air ... but there is also a hint of mischief in those eyes. I can well understand people being drawn to her as she's not only beautiful but also complex. You wonder just what she's hiding:-) Congratulations to Blueberry on the cover photo.

  8. Well, that's very exciting. I don't know why you'd think for a minute that she wouldn't go all diva over it. She's entitled, seems to me. Congratulations all around.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  9. Wow, Blueberry, you are a star! Blueberry seems pretty level-headed. I don't think it will go to her head!

    Your pal, Pip

  10. Oh my god, the look on her face in the couch photo is too much.

  11. That is great news!!! I know a superstar:)
    She is very beautiful, you can see why people are drawn to her.

  12. That first photo is stunning with the perfect collar and gorgeous background for Blueberry.

    It's so cool that she'll be on the cover of a book. I can't wait to see it. A real star among us!!!!!

  13. What an honour! But she is absolutely gorgeous. I love her gray colouring.

  14. That's so awesome for Blueberry!! She sure is extra beautiful!

  15. Pretty is as pretty does and Blueberry is GORGEOUS! No wonder people find her and want to use her image.

  16. Yeah for Blueberry, all the girls are beautiful but we have a special place in our heart for Lilac xoxox :)

  17. Blueberry really is beautiful!
    That's so cool that she'll be on a book cover! I will definitely look out for it! :)

  18. OMG! A famous sister!! Now don't let her go total Diva and start demanding bottled waters and stuff! But Blueberry is very pretty! It's a Diva house!

  19. I've always thought greyhounds were beautiful and of course Blueberry is one of the most beautiful, really. I love that she is posing under a picture of herself in the last regal of her!
    What an honor to be asked by an author to have her picture on the cover! Wow! Which pose did you choose? Or did Blueberry choose her favorite pose?
    By the way, I am hosting a blog hop today and there's 3 new furends that I've featured there so be sure to check them out and be sure to add your URL so Blueberry can gain a bigger fan base!

  20. She is a lovely specimen of a self assured lady!

  21. SQUEEEE!!!! How very, very, VERY much exciting! I can't blame that author pawson for wanting to use her picture. I mean, well, just LOOK at her! Now I can't wait until the book comes out. Do you think Blueberry would paw-toe-graph one for me?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  22. WOW! Blueberry will be a real celebrity:)

  23. Good for you Blueberry! Enjoy your time in the spotlight!!

  24. Some gals just have that certain something that makes them special for art work and whatnot. I think it might be her fancy furs. What is unique is often treasured and she is a color you don't see often. Don't let it get you down, Bunny, you are super special too.


  25. What a pawesome compliment to Blueberry and to you!!! She really is just so beautiful. We love how she knows how to handle a photoshoot:)
