My Pomeranian Honey is FAMOUS!

SURPRISE! My dog Honey is famous!

Today marks the day a week ago that she graced the pages of the Observer Magazine bringing joy to the nation with her ginger locks and chocolate button eyes! *cue uncontrollable cooing*

So, how on earth did I manage to get my mug and Honey's in the national press you may ask? Well, it was all rather random if I'm honest. I tweeted a picture of Honey and I (I post an unhealthy amount of pictures of her on the internet, especially on my personal instagram @nichm) and was contacted by a journalist from the Observer asking me if I would like to be involved with a weekly feature entitled 'What does this say about me?'- I thought well, I have nothing to lose it's just a bit of light hearted fun! I was interviewed over the phone and then a couple of days later they sent the very talented Richard Saker to my home to take photos of Honey and I. As you can see she was a little bewildered by the whole experience...

I had no idea what the finished piece would look like, another journalist wrote all that she could deduce about me just from looking at the photo. Given the inclusion of my sisters crazy Pomeranian themed cushion I was in fact a little surprised she was so nice about me and didn't think I was a bit of a nutter...

The photographer was kind enough to send me over a few snaps from the shoot too...

I really, REALLY have no clue what I was doing with my hand here and lucky me this was the shot they used in the magazine! -__-

Lo and behold my little star with her first mag feature!
