Another TV Appearance on Channel 12!

Jaz was on TV again!

Her tricks were featured on the show "Valley Dish"- during their Pet Pride segment! Last week, they showed a video clip I had submitted of her tricks. Then the next week, they invited us to the TV studio for a live taping with Tram Mai!

This was her first LIVE appearance! It was so much fun!! Everyone down at the studio just loved Jasmine! And I learned a lot too! NEXT time, I'm not going to turn the treats over to the hostess until AFTER Jaz has done a few more of her tricks!! ;)
Jaz didn't know who had the food! And she's VERY food-motivated! But all-in-all, I think it turned out cute!

WOOHOO!! =) I couldn't think of a better organization to support!

We're fostering 2 rescue dogs right now... trying to find homes for Annie and Oliver. (2 pitbull mixes that we found in a Burger King parking lot.) We named them Annie & Oliver because they were orphans! They have now been neutered and fixed, and have had their shots. So... if someone out there has room in their heart and their home for these guys, let me know! =)

Petsmart Photo Shoot!! =)

Awesome news!! Jasmine was selected to be in a photo shoot at Petsmart!!!

They are creating a grooming breed book- so the groomers can show customers what certain styles look like. And Jasmine is now the model for "Havanese- Pet Cut"! It's going to be in the stores in the next few months.

SO EXCITING!!! I had trouble sleeping the nights leading up to the shoot, because I was so excited about it. But then it was finally here! Jasmine and I had to drive an hour to NORTH NORTH Phoenix to be there by 8 am to get groomed there. Then she was all pretty for her photo shoot at 11 am.
Jaz did great! The first shot they took of her was of her standing sideways, looking slightly at the camera. They got that easily. The second shot was of her sitting, looking at the camera. I thought that would have been the easier shot to get, but sometimes she was leaning to one side... or her head was down (trying to look at the treat!) But in the end, it didn't take very long! They got some good shots of her, and we were done! It was that easy!
It turns out I didn't have any reason to be nervous, all the people I worked with there were SOO NICE!! =) And they got the shots they needed pretty quickly, so it went really smooth! It was a lot of fun! I'm so glad they picked us!!
And in case you were wondering what the "Havanese- Pet Cut" looks like... here's the model showing off her new haircut! (and chilling out after the shoot!)
