Deb, I looked through Jo Ellen's old posts and found the one about the pillow:

I love the Daisy pillow story. One day straight out of the blue I looked on e-bay and there was a beautiful tapestry pillow with Daisy's photograph. We all know our own photographs, I recognized it instantly.

At first I was shocked, and I may even have been a little bit angry, feeling like something had been stolen from me. But after awhile, I just began to realize what a gift it was. Someone loved my photo of Daisy enough to have it made into a tapestry fabric, and then made lovely decorative throw pillows from it and began selling them on e-bay. I myself would never have been able to do that.

Everytime I look at my Daisy pillow, I am so flattered. I have no idea how many are out there, it's just a good feeling to know that Daisy graces the homes of more people than just mine

I have alot of photos here and on GR Weekly. I did have one photo lifted by another website without my permission but it wasn't used to make money.
ARRGH!
Oh, it's an old story, but Jo Ellen was very surprised when an old friend posted a picture of her new pillow she purchased off of ebay. There were other GR's on the pillow too and I was able to find those photos on a forum. Gave me a headache searching for them! LOL

I guess someone decided to make fabric from the photos and sell it. The person who made the pillows, she/he also made beautiful tablerunners, had nothing to do with the photos being used. She purchased the fabric through a company.

As Jo Ellen states, after getting over the initial shock, it's kind of cool too have your dogs photo sitting a someone else's livingroom (not her words). I certainly wouldn't mind seeing my two on a pillow. I loved seeing Shadow in the GR magazine and his HD story.

This incident isn't why I don't use the forum's gallery and this forum had nothing to do with the "fabric" photos at all. They were not posted here. They were posted elsewhere.

Hope this explanation helps. I forget that I have a long history with some forum members. I think it goes back to 2003. A lot can happen!

Sorry Jo! I thought Goldensonly bought the pillow and posted it for all of us to see. I'm gettin' old!

I wouldn't think twice about entering the monthly contest. In fact, I did! Someone can use any photo posted anywhere. I'm sure even copyrighted photos have been used without permission in some instances.

Yeah Kimm, you and I are oldtimers

Goldensonly posted an ebay link on another forum about golden retriever pillows. I skipped over that link several times, I'd never even looked at e-bay before. But one day out of sheer boredom I decided to take a look ... and lo and behold, what did I find. WOW LOL.

Never say never

Did you tell the person selling the pillow that is was your dog in the picture? She should have given you the pillow for free!

I sent her my original photograph and she said they did, indeed, look "similar." I assured her that was my photograph. She was worried, for whatever reason so she was being defensive. I have no idea if the seller is the one who "lifted" my photo. Who knows. It's not worth it to me to pursue.

And I did buy the pillows yes, though I agree on principal, I should have received them for free. Life isn't fair, but it sure is fun sometimes
