One Small Step for Dogs, One Giant Leap for Dogkind!

 elithechihuahuaphoto

 Dog history has been made once again!

This time, it’s in the cinema field!

Eli, the Chihuahua is one of the very few dogs to have their own listing on IMDB!  Too cute! Up ’til now, “they” said it couldn’t be done!

It’s a big achievement when you think about all the dogs who have had starring roles in television and film and so few of THEM are listed on the IMDB.

You might recognize Eli from the small dog MilkBone biscuit boxes. That’s him!  Eli has appeared in many in-print magazines gracing multiple covers and fashion shows, “pawticipates” in many charity dogwalks and parades and is generally the “dog-about-town” in the Big Apple!

Eli’s owner, Karen Biehl has long been Eli’s champion and is seeing to it that credit is given where credit is due!

We applaud you Karen, for being such a great advocate for your budding star! And now, you can officially be called a “stage-dog mom”, LOL!

Eli will be appearing in a short film being screened at the New York Latino Film Festival July 30, in NYC  called “Dog Run” and Eli himself will be making a personal appearance!

 Eli’s message – don’t listen to the naysayers who say things can’t be done.  Make your
own rules!  WOOF 🙂

We hope to bring you an interview with Eli the Chihuahua and his owner Karen soon, so keep checking back!

Singer/songwriter Ashanti and Cairn Terrier “Nigel” hosted the “There’s No Place Like Home” dog adoption event at the New York Center in NYC May 30, 2009!

Ashanti also posed with one of the dogs for adoption, precious little “Willis”.  Awww, I hope he got a great home!

 Twenty-month-old Nigel was spotted by an animal trainer on the Humane Society website and after speaking to shelter personnel, he knew that Nigel had star potential!

Ashanti will be starring as Dorothy and Nigel as  (who ELSE?) Toto in the summer production of “The Wiz” which runs from June 12 through July 5, 2009 at the New York Center!

Bo Obama is a Beanie!

For all you Beanie Baby collectors, Bo the newest First Family addition, is now a Beanie!

After an initial shipment of 25 of the  Bo The Portugese Water Dog Beanie Babies were shipped in April and sold out within a few hours; another shipment hit the exclusive retailers yesterday, Tuesday May 12 and were expected to also be gone by today!

The stuffed dog, comes with a red, white and blue ribbon around it’s neck and inside the swing tag says:

“I just want to jump and play, but I will NEVER run away;

I love my house, it’s big and white, and I can roam all day and night!”

Bo 2.0 comes in the original size and now comes in a larger size and a keychain version.  I don’t know about you, but I absolutely can’t wait to get mine!

TY, the producer of the toy donates a portion of the proceeds to local animal shelters!

Oprah Winfrey’s new pup, Cocker Spaniel Sadie graces the cover of the June issue of “O” magazine; The Animal Issue!

Sadie’s getting cuter by the day, isn’t she? That’s her on Oprah’s right shoulder, just like an angel!

After her bout of Parvo when she was just 11 weeks old, Sadie has made a full recovery! Stay well, Sadie!

Bobama’s HOME!

President Barak Obama and his family have welcomed their new dog Bo to the White House and they’re showing him off around the grounds! AT LAST!

The 6-month-old Portuguese water dog made his debut Tuesday afternoon in front of reporters and photographers. And the Obamas even walked him over near the fence on the White House South Lawn.

Said the president: “He’s got star quality.”

First lady Michelle Obama did most of the walking, with Bo on a leash. But daughter Malia took a turn, too, as Bo took off running.

Awwww…I bet they’re all so excited; there’s nothing like a new pet in the house!

Martha Stewart’s Frenchies Take to the Airwaves!

Martha StewartMartha Stewart

 Not too long ago, we told you about Martha Stewart’s French Bulldogs, Francesca and Sharkey starting their own blog. 

Apparently, the two darling divas were so eloquent, they’re being tapped to fulfill their dreams of being radio personalities as well!

Francesca and Sharkey will be hosting their own show on Sirius Satellite network called “Whatever Frenchies”,  a takeoff of Martha’s daughter’s show, “Whatever Martha”, a sort of tongue in cheek, irreverent look at Martha-isms.

I can’t imagine those two cute little doggies divulging any of their mistress’ deep, dark secrets, but I’m definitely interested in what they have to say…..or maybe, just HOW they say it!

No dates or times have been announced, but keep checking back here for the latest info!
