Roll Out The Red Carpet

Never mind the Academy Awards. The cameras
made international stars of my Airedales in 2014.

Roxie, who spends more time camping in the Rockies than she does mugging for
pictures, got a full page spread in the Winter 2014/15 issue of the glossy U.S. -
Canada quarterly Modern Dog. She's a nine-year-old girl but Roxie won the
audition to illustrate the King of Terriers in a Terrific Terriers feature
photographed by Sarah Daloise. The warp and woof of Roxie's coat caught the
photographer's eye but readers are supposed to see that crystals, rather than
diamonds, are this girl's best friend. Roxie is sporting an $88 collar of
handcrafted leather studded with Swarovski crystals. Just the bling to flaunt
when you want to put on the dog.

Phoebe, a girl of mine living in Vancouver, also won an audition, for a walk-on
(make that jump-on) part in a movie being shot there. Background performers
were given clear, firm instructions not to approach, or even look at, the stars of a
film called The Age of Adaline. Whoever laid down that law didn't speak
Airedale. The UK's Daily Mail ran a picture of Phoebe jumping on Gossip Girl
super starlet Blake Lively. As Airedale owners know, you can't keep a good
Airedale down. Lively was trying to fend off Phoebe in the picture but the Daily
Mail described the actress as an animal lover who would have been happy to hug
Phoebe if it hadn't been for her stylish 1950s costume. Acting seems not to be the
route to buying Swarovski crystals. Phoebe got paid only $35 for her role.
