Doggy Casting Call- AZ Foothills Magazine

Today was a REALLY hot day! (106 degrees) But today was the "Dog Days of Summer" casting call, so off we went!
I was lucky my friend Deena came with me to help! She got some good pics while we were there! We had to wait in line for about 45 minutes until it was our turn. But that was okay because there were some really cute dogs there to admire- of every size, breed, and color. It was fun talking to all the owners.
When it was our turn, the first picture we took was just our number. We were #39.
They took a few shots of Jasmine sitting, then sitting pretty. Then finally with the shopping cart. We only got about 2 minutes of the photographer's time. So we had to make it count! Jaz did really good- considering how hot it was outside! She drank her water, but she didn't even want her treats. (Until she cooled down in the car afterwards- then she reconsidered!) ;)
Their website said you could submit a photo online. And if I had, it probably would have looked better. However, it's going to be a voting contest. And you got 1000 votes if you showed up to the doggy casting call. (Then they also have the rights to the photograph.) So I'm hoping one of the ones they took turned out decent. If not... it was still a good experience for Jaz to practice auditioning. She's good at performing with distractions. (Probably because of our experience being a therapy dog team.) However, she doesn't always like to perform when it's really hot outside. (And I can't say that I blame her!) I wouldn't either!! ;)

Old School Trick Video...

An oldie, but a goodie. :)

I love this video. (Mainly how the songs match the actions of the tricks!) The downside to being a YouTube partner is that you can't use fun songs like this anymore!! I have to use royalty-free music. Which is nice... but it's not the same as the fun songs that everyone knows!

Jaz was on TV in JAPAN!! =)

Remember how Jaz was on TV in Japan last month? Well I now have the video to share with everyone!! I found a nice friend in Japan who was willing to record it for me, and then my awesome brother added the English subtitles! So now we all can enjoy it!

Here's the international shopping dog!

Almost to 1,000!

I just noticed Jasmine's YouTube channel is up to 992 subscribers! Woohoo! I wonder if we'll hit 1,000 this week!?

(I'm weird, but I like even numbers!) LOL

I've been working on putting together a new trick video. I got a friend to come over on Friday to videotape some footage for me. (THANKS MINDY!!) :D

Now I'm working on uploading, editing, etc.

I made the switch from my ancient PC to a newer Mac Laptop (that I barely know how to use!) The good news is: All my future Jasmine videos can be in HD. The bad news is: 1) I'm still learning how to use iMovie. 2) All my previous footage of Jasmine is on my hard-drive, but saved as a .wmv (Windows Movie Video or something... which is not compatible with my mac!) :( So I need to record new footage. But I guess that's ok. Jaz has been getting better with her tricks anyway... I might as well show off the latest! :)

Well that's all for now folks! As you know, Jasmine was on TV in Japan last month... and I'm hoping to have that video up in the next week or so! (My brother is editing it so it has English subtitles!) Woohoo! =) So keep an eye out for it on Jaz's YT channel! It will be there soon!! :)

LOL... Fake!

LOL.... I got a good laugh this morning.

Somebody on YouTube wrote a comment on one of Jasmine's old videos...

He wrote that this was fake!! Um.... LOL. Did I need to actually write that in the comments? Yes, YouTube watchers, this is trickery. You can't believe everything you see on TV or the internet! Jasmine doesn't actually play the Wii when I'm not home. (As far as I know!) ;) I laughed really hard when I read that comment!

Looking for a few sponsors...

OK Friends...

I need your help! As you know, I got invited to be a Keynote Speaker at the BarkWorld Pet Expo in Atlanta from Sept. 29- Oct. 1st. (Because of the growing popularity of Jasmine's YouTube channel.) One of her recent "Dog Goes Shopping" videos is up to 73,000 views! :)

My presentation is called “How To Make Your Pet A YouTube Sensation”. And I'm going to teach people how to promote their pet through social media. (I don't even need to tell you that Jasmine has made some wonderful friends online- and thus has a very loyal following on Twitter, Facebook, and this blog!) Lauren & her dog Paige are going to be there... and they are SUPER popular!! :D (And we get to meet them!!!) :D (They're one of the wonderful friends we have met online... but never met in person!) (until September!!)

So... long story short... I need to find a few companies to sponsor our trip to BarkWorld. (and in return they can get promoted through Jaz's social media sites (her Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube). So... who should I ask?? Any ideas?

New Petsmart Commercial!!!

Jaz is going to be in another Petsmart commercial!! =D I submitted this video back in May. Petsmart was having a contest on Facebook asking for video submissions, and I just got an email that they are going to use it!! YAY!!! =D

I'll be sure to keep you updated when the real thing is coming out!!

Discovery Channel appearance?

So... I got a phone call from the Discovery Channel! They might use some of Jasmine's videos in an upcoming show! So I took some new 'shopping dog' footage for them! There's a possibility that Jaz's part may end up getting cut by the end. But that's okay! It's cool that they're even considering her! Here's some of what they might be using:

I'll definitely keep you posted!! =D
