Well, our favorite shelter magazine was brought back to life via a special edition issue. I honestly forgot it was hitting the stands until I bumped into it at Barnes & Nobles yesterday. Seeing it brought an immediate rush of glee, and excitement came over me. I don’t think I even questioned my purchase. I grabbed it, a few oatmeal cookies for my guy, and out we went.
Once we got home, and I had time to really look at the magazine. I realized it was not the “old domino” that we were all sad to see leave. This issue was $10.99 for 128 pages. Unfortunately there are repeats of images from previous issues. I think at $10.99 we should be getting something FRESH & NEW throughout. I almost feel as though the publishers are aware how we all feel about DOMINO, and decided to put a for sure money maker on the stands. They are aware that we as shelter magazine lovers feel the void of DOMINO, and would just be happy to see it resurrected. Although that is true, the meat of this special DOMINO sandwich DID NOT FILL ME UP. Don’t get me wrong. The images are great, and its splashed with color and concept..but it’s just not the DOMINO that we all know. The last page notes a second issue coming out in September. I am crossing my fingers in hope that things improve. I love you DOMINO, but you can do BETTER.
Have you seen the issue? What are your thoughts?
High Fives & Hugs,
