If you follow Life with Arie on Twitter (@masdemoore) or on Facebook, chances are you saw our exciting announcement that we would be telling you about our giveaway on the blog…yesterday. We’re finally able to tell you about the giveaway today!
Yesterday’s delay was the result of a very awkward turn of events. After heading to her crate for some nightly shut eye, Arie decided she wanted to get my attention by scratching at her crate door. Somehow, she managed to get two of her paw pads through one slot in the door of her crate and was stuck. After a few minutes of both of us screaming, I got her paw loose and she was fine–besides having peed herself from fear, poor thing.
Needless to say, we all have awkward situations that arise in our life, like your dog somehow managing to get her paw stuck in a door. Sometimes, these awkward situations are captured by a camera–and in still other situations, we’ve actually posed for them.
Enter the awkward family photo. My parents’ hallway is lined with fine examples of these, from a photo of my sister, mother, and I wearing matching dresses and huge 80’s bows to family photos where one member of the family isn’t ready, either starring daggers at someone else or still fixing their hair. The hilarious and well known book, Awkward Family Photos, became an over-night Internet sensation for compiling these awkward moments. Now, the authors are back with a sequel: Awkward Family Pet Photos.
I’ve had the privilege of reading this book, and I must say, it now stays in my cubicle at work for occasional relief from the mundane and as an escape into the hilarious misfortune of other people’s awkward memories. Pet lovers and owners will have a special love for this book as they can relate and understand the situations these pets and the people who love get into in front of a camera.
