Dog Shaming (14 page)

I would like to take a moment to thank a few special people.
Without them, this book would never have come to fruition. I’d like to thank my parents, Claude and Sylvia. Their unwavering love and encouragement has made me who I am today. My little brother, Alex: the barometer of what is hip or totally uncool (I definitely fit into the former category, for the first time). My best friend, Megan. She’s there whether you’re high or low (usually with wine). Everyone needs a Megan. Heather, my Californian ray of sunshine. My entire Tumblr community, who shared in my amazement and joy when I made it big. I’d like to thank Jairus of
www.jairus.ca
for being the best Web designer and developer. I’d also like to thank my agent, Kristyn Keene, over at ICM, for believing in me and being an all-around fantastic lady. Last, I’d like to thank Amanda Patten and her team at Three Rivers Press. Her continued enthusiasm and professionalism with a side of girlfriend made this process the most enjoyable and fulfilling months of my life.
