Willow's Famous... In Germany

Today we went to Toronto to do a photo shoot for an antibiotic called Baytril, made by Bayer. Willow did great! Unfortunately, it's for a brochure and is intended for Germany.

So... if you're a vet in Germany, please keep a lookout for my red dog.

The brochure is supposed to tell a story, dog with vet looking sad and sick, vet gives dog hope that there is something that can help, and dog is better and thanking vet. Willow's spot will likely be the thanking the vet, although she did have some great shots for all three parts. She had a lovely head down eyes rolled up looking at the 'vet' which actually did look like a "help me". She had a great shot where she was looking at him as he was explaining to her what he was going to do, actually I think she sniffed his hand which looked like it was holding something... which may look like she's taking the pill. And to finale it we put peanut butter on his cheek and she gave him some good kisses.

All in all it went great! I'm so proud of my little model, hopefully we'll get more work in the future.

I asked if they could send me some of the shots (hopefully a copy of the finished product) so that I could start a portfolio for her... I'll post a couple when I get them.

Yeah, she'll do freebies for her buds!

I really hope that we get more work and that it appears in more mainstream stuff.

Through my "dog world" connections. A friend of my trainer's sent out an e-mail to everyone that had a dog with the 'style' that the agency was looking for. I sent Willow's pic to her and they chose her. The photographer we worked with does a lot of stock photography and said if they ever need a happy red dog they would give me a shout!!!

Yeah, it would be great to do some mainstream stuff, like PetSmart or Pet Valu ads or something to that effect.

The female vet is the girl in the Listerine commercials, the dark haired one. I'm sitting watching tv yesterday and I see the new commercial and was like "hey, that's Shanly". She had mentioned Listerine, but I didn't clue in.

LOL No he didn't tell me... wat does it mean?

She is the dark haired girl in this commercial here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMh419MFi3E

Also the one making the food in the Kraft commercial, in the red shirt... I was looking down and actually recognized her voice. LOL She has that way of dragging out words and I recognized the Cheddaaaar. Geez I should have gotten her autograph Thursday. LOL You never know when someone could make it big.

He asked why you are calling him stingy and when I explained he said he an old fashioned guy and doesn't like calling women mozza. LOL
