Another Star for Wallymon

Jeff Baenen's Associated Press photo of me and Walter the Pug won the MN Society of Professional Journalists "Page One" award for news portrait! We all know why this photo won...and it ain't the redhead. I remember when Jeff came to my house to take this shot. I told him to make a strange noise, so walter would look at him, and he made a high-pitched sound, like a tea kettle, causing me to smile and walter to tilt his head, "ba-roo?" Way to go Jeff!

Of course Walter has "STAR" quality. He is famous.
It is an adorable photo of both of you.

This is an award winning picture if we ever saw one! When I take pictures of my gang, the high pitched 'tea kettle' noise always gets the perfect head tilt. :)
