“If My Small Dog Was As Big As She Thinks She Is”
“Vivian the Dog Moves to Brooklyn,” is a book about a big dog moving from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Brooklyn, New York. It’s 32 pages long and will be full of beautiful photo-illustrations created by Mitch Boyer and starring Vivian, with some pretty fantastic letterings and drawings by the talented, Valerie Navarro.
In the book, Vivian is a giant dog—over 6 feet tall! She loves the wide open spaces and delicious foods of New Mexico, but most of all, she loves playing with her best friend, “the human.” When Vivian learns she and the human are moving to New York City, aka the “Big City,” she gets very excited. She believes everything will be as big as she is in the “Big City,” and she can’t wait to move!
“A few months ago I started photoshopping images of my Dachshund, Vivian in her “true size.” She has a larger than life personality and I wanted to capture it in a picture.” – Mitch told Bored Panda.
“I’ve known Vivian since she was a newborn puppy. My sister has a dog named Gogo, and she had a litter of puppies—Gogo, not my sister. The night they were born, my mom stayed up delivering the puppies. My dad likes to point out that he helped and was “the assistant midwife.” I rushed over to their home the next day and instantly fell in love with Vivian.” – he added.
