A Star Is Born

Jake is going to be a star. We found out today that he has been selected to be in a commercial for the Dog Whisperer, a new production of National Geographic.

Our neighbor’s daughter, who is in the film industry, put out a blanket e-mail message last week inviting people with big dogs to submit a picture of their pets as an application for the commercial shoot. We sent the one of Jake with his kong on the gate in the snow. Just today we learned that he was chosen.

The filming date is Friday of next week. I will give Jake a bath and brush all the loose hair out so he will look his best for his film debut. We will be a part of the commercial as well, but I don’t yet know exactly what any of us has to do or say or bark.

I will let everyone know if they actually use the film footage from next week’s shoot. Meanwhile, I have to make sure Jake’s new stardom doesn’t go to his head!

What fun! Maybe one day Jake will write a tell-all (bark-all?) book, including his bedroom peeping activities, LOL.

Let's hope Jake doesn't turn out like most child stars.

But, I have to admit, being part of National Geographic is far more exciting than some clip on the local cable station.

Velvet -- This is just a random opportunity, but it will be fun to see how they make a commercial. They are still searching for the perfect place to film it.
