So I got this email. CBC – or as I like to call it, the Ceeb – (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for those uninitiated in the Great White North) will be airing a documentary in February 2013 titled Dog Dazed. Here is the description from the website:
” Upbeat and irreverent, including animation from Oscar-nominated Cordell Barker, Dog Dazed explores the craziness, the conflicts and the potential solutions as humans work to integrate these descendants of wolves into our urban life-style without driving them – and our own species – barking mad.”
Sounds pretty cool, right?
That’s not the best part. Here is the best part:
“We are seeking fabulous and funny dog videos for inclusion in the Doc Zone documentary, Dog Dazed. If your dog has a special talent or has been caught on camera in a silly moment, this could be his or her chance for stardom… The top 3 videos, selected by a jury of dog-lovers and by on-line popularity, will be featured on Doc Zone’s Dog Dazed on February 28.”
Yahoo! Finally! This is Shiva’s big chance to make it to television!
Okay, I realize these chances are slim to non-existent. There are a lot of dogs with much more impressive tricks and much sillier antics. It’s probably ridiculous to think she could win. I’ve seen some of the ones entered and they are dang funny. But I wouldn’t forgive myself if I didn’t enter something to the competition, even if there is no hope.
This is where I beg, plead, cajole for your help. I’ve searched through all the videos I’ve already uploaded to Youtube and none of them really stand out to me. The deadline to enter is December 15 so I have a bit of time to come up with something totally off the wall. Do you have any ideas you’d be willing to share? Or do you think any of my previous ones would at least get some attention? I’m feeling a little desperate. I promise if we win (hahahahahahahahaha!) I will make it worth your while! Maybe I’ll even name my second dog after you or… I’ll think of something!
I’ve got eight days to come up with something short, goofy, and never been seen before. No sweat, right?
