Shiva’s Big Chance: I Need Your Help!

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?

  1. Oh dog – that 360 roll is to die for!!!

    I also pledge to vote, tweet, “like” and stumble whatever you enter! Good luck and keep us posted so we know when to vote.


  2. This is how I see it: a funny dog video on CBC is step one to becoming the future co-host of the Mercer Report! (Co-host because Rick is awesome and I mostly just want to be his BFF and follow him around on his job.) So you HAVE to win!

    Shiva’s pee-on-it command is pretty hilarious – maybe a good starting point?

    Whatever you submit, I’ll vote!


  3. I saw that and thought to myself “Kolchak and I have absolutely nothing to bring to a show like that.”

    What about some sort of epic montage? Like you and Shiva lock eyes across the yard, she runs at you in slow motion while suspense music plays then leaps into your arms, you catch her then break into dance together. (I’m seeing leg weaves and your awesome tandem 360 roll.) I have big dreams for you two, clearly. Koly and I will be here on the couch snacking and waiting for our requested video to be uploaded ;0) I’m telling you, I’d promote the WOOF out of that video.


  4. Can’t think of anything to contribute in terms of ideas, but will vote what whatever you decide to submit….vote in all forms from all over the place…that’s a PROMISE
