I know this has been a loooong time coming. There aren’t words for how long the past year has been for me – or how happy I am to FINALLY be able to send this email.
HUGE thanks to everyone who waited patiently for this day to come!!!
To the not-so-patient, I understand and apologize for all/any frustration. I wish I could have given everyone a lot more than an autoresponse email, but this project proved much too big for one person, her pug and a Nikon. I ask everyone to please remember this was a massive year-long project, not a private photoshoot. The #1 priority was to make each pug’s 15 minutes with Nikon as awesome as possible and create a book that all 1000 pugs will be proud of.
Anyway. You became 1 of 1000 to celebrate these crazy little dogs we all love so much. So let’s start celebrating!
THE AWESOME NEWS
Your pictures are done. Finally. DONE. Yes, I know it took forever. Trust me. I know. I’ve learned when you multiply even the simplest one minute task x1000, it takes DAYS to get anything done.
Seriously. I used a calculator. 1000 minutes = 16 1/2 hours
Start multiplying by more realistic numbers and days become months… and months… and months.
I’ll spare you the actual math
I’m so happy the images are finished, I didn’t want to wait any longer to share the good news. With 3 images per pug, it takes a day to get each city’s gallery up and running. Galleries will open in the order the pictures were taken. The SF gallery will open March 4th.
25th: MINNEAPOLIS + MILWAUKEE
4th: SAN FRANCISCO
You’ll receive an email when the gallery for your city is open. A link to the gallery will also be posted in the YOUR IMAGES section on each city’s page at www.pugtour.com. From the gallery, you’ll be able to download your pug’s images. Detailed instructions explain exactly what to do.
OTHER AWESOME NEWS
While you’re waiting for your gallery to open, you can catch up on all the good, bad and ugly stuff from the past year. Look for it under ‘Project Recap’ on 1000pugs.com.
We’re spreading the pug love on facebook. A new pug will be featured each day, so keep an eye out for familiar cuteness. (hint: pugs will appear in random order, so you might see a familiar face before your city’s gallery opens).
I probably forgot some things, but think that’s the most important stuff.
Hugs + Bacon,
Amanda and Puglet
