ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE PUBLISHES PHOTO OF DECLAN WHITLOCK; CIRCULATION JUMPS.
We were excited to see a picture of Declan in the Sunday paper this morning. We were going to the Easter egg hunt for dogs yesterday, and when Declan saw that I put Phoebe in a costume, Declan demanded to wear one too. So I opted to put him in a dog costume. As you do. Only Nellie was allowed to retain her dignity. The event consists of a hunt for 5,000 plastic eggs with dog treats inside hidden in the woods, a doggie Easter bonnet parade, and a dog-owner look-a-like contest.
I hope Declan of the future will think it's cool to have a newspaper clipping of himself 30 years from now, when physical daily newspapers probably won't exist anymore. Or maybe he will resent being photographed in a dog costume. It could go either way.
