The number of followers on the Little Boy Blue Facebook page continues to grow exponentially and is fast approaching 200—many of them people who stop by not only to learn about the book in production, but also to enjoy photographs and updates about the happy life that Blue is living.
I didn’t anticipate this phenomenon, but I sure am thrilled to be a part of it. Many people who rescue dogs like Blue experience a great deal of heartache while viewing online photographs of dogs in desperate need of help, and dogs that often cannot be saved. When a happy photograph of Blue shows up in their Facebook feed amid so much tragedy, it is a reminder that for some dogs, the rescue process really does have a happily-ever-after ending.
While I’m of course excited that there is so much growing interest in Little Boy Blue the book, I’m also happily surprised that Blue himself is bringing so many smiles to the faces of animal advocates. Rest assured, I’ll continue with updates of both kinds on Facebook.
