Who’s that “Dog” in the Window?

Dog Book DisplayDuane “Dog” Chapman has been cleared of the legal cloud that the Mexican government has had hanging over his head. What an ugly experience. Things are bad enough, but to get thrown into prison lock-up because you apprehended a repeat sexual offender… that’s gotta sting!

I never thought about it but bounty hunting is illegal in Mexico. Duh, that’s why people run there! It seems that the legal system over there has let go of the charges against the Dog since the charges have now exceeded the statute of limitations.

He’s out, he’s clear and he’s damn happy to be so! It had to be hard for a man who is now on the right side of the law, to be back among the accused — even if only for a short time.

To add to the revelry, Chapman’s book, The Dog‘s “You Can Run but You Can’t Hide,” was hot off the press!

Office Window

KHNL, Channel 8 had a good video of the promotion and the fun going on at Barnes and Noble in Kahala Mall last Thursday. (If you get an error message just ignore it, the Windows Media Player will open anyway and play the video.)

Dog Book Display at Borders

Even though Amazon shows the book as not being out until tomorrow (Tuesday), Borders wasted no time getting things up and running for this surprise, early release. The Chapmans were thankful that both the release of the pending litigation and the release of the new book happened at the same time. I think they saw it as a good omen.

Borders decided that the book was more than worthy of a display and the one above is currently appearing at both the Ward and Pearl Ridge locations. I didn’t get out to Kapolei but I’m sure it’s there too!

Congratulations Duane and Beth! Whew! Good Karma? I hope so. I’m sure A&E is breathing easier! I was standing right there next to the display and I didn’t get a copy. What was I thinking? Oh well, any excuse to go back to Borders is always good for me! Store Window Bonds

So anybody that had their eyes on this space on Queen Emma Street is plain out of luck! The Dog’s back at home and that doggy in the window is not for sale… well, maybe for some criminal justice services, for a fee!

    The charges being dropped just as his book is being released, you can’t pay for media attention this good!! I am glad for him.

    Good morning, HVG! Yeah, I was happy for their whole family. It’s not like they’re not trying to defend and support our laws! And you’re right, media attention doesn’t get much better than that! I’m sure that A&E didn’t mind it either. 😉
