Hi everyone! It's been so wonderful to receive all of your kind messages and pictures reading the book. This process has definitely been a journey, and I deeply appreciate your support and patience.
I'm still waiting for address verification from about 30 people. If you have not received your book or a shipment notification, please email me: email@example.com so I can get you your reward! Thanks!!
@Tom Mohan, Thank you for supporting this project. This was my first time fulfilling a product through Kickstarter and has been a big learning experience. I'm sorry you are disappointed and completely understand why you would feel upset about the delay in delivery. I don't know if you received my backer updates throughout the process, but I've done my best to be transparent. Thank you again for your support.
This was a very disappointing Kickstarter experience. To think I ended up paying twice what Amazon is charging for the book and received it 6 months later. It arrived today. Just the book. Not so much as a note of thanks or explanation accompanied it, let alone any bonus to reward my patience. The creator's silence has been deafening. How can we not feel like a bunch of suckers at this point? I feel that we should spread the word around the Kickstarter community so that others can be made aware of Mr. Boyer's practices.
Vivians adventures arrived today in Germany!
Thank you very much and WOOF! from dachshund Emma. :o)
There is movement!!!
Got my postcard today :-D
Thank you Mitch & Vivian :) :) :)
Please provide with us a timeline - when will the books be send to us?
Thank you very much,
It's currently $14.09 on Amazon with 1 day shipping. Backed for over double that and have yet to receive the book. As others stated, I was looking to gift this earlier in the year, if not at Christmas. Disappointing.
@Roberta Merwin Hi! Can you send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org? Vivian and I would love to do a free skype reading of the book for you and your local Dachshund Rescue this May.
Mitch and Viv :)
Great, I ordered an autographed copy of the book during the campaign to donate to my local dachshund rescue for their annual fundraiser last May--no book. Then I thought, okay, it will be here for their Christmas fundraiser--still no book. Will it even be here in time for the May 2018 fundraiser? At this point I wish there was a way to get the money back, now that it's out on Amazon, an autographed copy is not going to bring in any more for the rescue group than retail price. And by this May, all the dachshund lovers will already have their copy. I too thought the kickstarter supporters would be receiving the book first. Very disappointed.
I just posted a video update for backers, please check it out! If you have questions or comments, please send an email to email@example.com.

I think Mitch and Vivian went to Brooklyn and forgot about us KS backers.
Same here. Still haven’t received the book.
Add me to the list of people who are curious where the book is in the manufacturing and shipping process. I was hoping to give this to my dachshund-loving significant other for Christmas. Now I'm wondering if Valentine's Day is doable....
Any update on when this book will be shipped?
I am also wondering when this will ship. Please send out an update to everyone so we can know when to expect it. I'm feeling like there is no plan to ship the books or rewards but I hope I am wrong.
Received the book I ordered from Amazon. Took two days.
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one perplexed and wondering where the books and posters are. I understand delays and priorities that may come from publishing houses, but it feels like no preferential status was given to the early Kickstarter backers of this project. Over a month ago, I was asked to confirm my shipping address, and that really built the anticipation to share this project with my family. Can we get an update? I'm hoping we can expect Kickstarter rewards before Christmas. Can you please confirm? Thanks for your time!
Mark, I too was a little surprised (not pleasantly) to see the book retailing for $14.99 on Amazon. Anyway, seems like the print version exists yet backers are yet to receive anything. Still happy to have supported this project but wondering about the lack of updates/when the book will ship.
Hey Mitch, what’s going on here?
You have been very open about the progress all this time, and suddenly, there is nothing.
Has something happened? Or are you still waiting for some of the merchandise to send out with the book?
I just ordered one from Amazon for $14.99. Half of what we paid here on KS. Crazy. Since I’m Amazon Prime, I’ll have it by Thursday. If the KS one ever does show, I’ve got friends that own Doxies; I’ll just give the book to them.
@Teresa Garrett I just had a look at the Amazon page too, there is a review from a customer there dated October 25th so it appears that the book has been available for over a month. Hopefully we haven't been forgotten!
Today is November 27, 2017. I see the book is available on Amazon now. I'm thinking it just became available w/in the last week. Hoping that it ships to those of us who backed the project very soon. I too, would love to have it as a Christmas gift. Thanks!
Still hoping to receive the book in time for Christmas (2017).
I wonder if the reward-books has already been sent?
I got a confirmation mail for my adresse mid October and I haven't rececived the book yet... Even with a long delivery time from US to Germany it should has been delivered by now (?)
Thank you very much! =)
Has anyone received the book yet?
It is now November. You have my correct address. Where are my books????
@Kristen Chapman: we can't wait to send it to you and everyone else! October cannot come soon enough!
My dachshund loving girls and I cannot wait for Viv's book!!!! It has been great fun following the progress and getting the adorable and hilarious photos of Viv and her adventures!
Hello Mitch, Hello Vivian,
Great News! Looking forward to your announcement.
@Katharina Spoerri: Hi Katharina, things are going well! We've been working on the book full-time for the last few months and have an exciting announcement coming in the next few days :) Stay tuned!
How is everything going? I just realised, we haven't heard from you and Vivian in almost 3 months. I hope you are both OK.
I am thrilled to help! My 5 year old granddaughter, Tilda Irene Finley, lives
in Brooklyn. I am sure she will LOVE your clever book!
Granny Mary Annie
Congratulations Mitch!!! I'm so excited about this project and I can't wait to see the book when it's done. I know my special needs students will enjoy hearing me read it to them and they are going to LOVE the pictures of Vivian! I already love the pictures of her.
Congratulations Mitch & Vivian! Can't wait to read the book to my grandson, Miles! Have you found your Lulu yet? I suggested my niece contact you, as she lives in Brooklyn & has a very photogenic laid back pooch with lots of time on his paws! ....and, of course, I have a Dachshund or two! Wishing you tons of fun with this BIG project!
way to go! you squeaked by with the new goal.
Congratulations on hitting the $20K goal! Can't wait to read this book with my dachshund Loki. He looks exactly like Vivian! �
Woooooooo! So excited to see this in the flesh! Audrey Dogford Gonzalez is also looking forward to Vivian's autograph (she thinks she's just as big too). If you come to the UK, let us know and we can have a puppy party!
@ Adam Rubinstein: Sounds good, looking forward to it!
Yay, Albuquerque! Let us know when you're here and we'll see to it you have a great time in the 505.
@ Janine Amberger: Sending you a message :)
Thank you for the answer, Mitch! (:
Can we combine different rewards? I'd like to get the book as well as a postcard from Vivian ♥
@ Denise: thanks for all of your support!
@ Karen Bernsohn: Thanks Karen! Sorry to hear about Bernie, we hope this story brings you some joy :)
@ Janine Amberger: thanks for backing! The plan is to first release the book to people who backed the project at "the hardcover book" level and above. That will happen around April next year. General sales for the book will be some time after that. Hope that helps!
Congrats on hitting your goal. Very excited for you guys! - Brock and Steph aka fellow dachshund lovers
Will the book only be available via this kickstarter or will we also have the chance to grab copies later on?
I love everything Doxy and Vivian is beautiful. Sadly my little Bernie passed away a few months ago. I am anxious to read the book. Good luck!
We have three Doxies and we are from, Albuquerque!! (We live in Atlanta now). Can't wait to read about the adventures.
