So I saw this casting call for a spot in a commercial leading up to the Red Nose Day charity fund raiser on NBC in May...they called for silly pet tricks. On a whim which I must have blacked out on I sent a video of a couple of Sophie's tricks. I was shocked when she got selected to come audition...we really aren't ready for this at all she knows a few really cute things but not many reliably yet not to mention not proofed with distractions much or in public.

So I chose 3 of her tricks, wave, run across the room and jump onto her little chair she barely fits on and sit down, and to turn and back into a 30" long, 8" x 8" cardboard box.

I have to wear a red nose and she'll wear a red collar or something. Our time slot is between 2-4 pm this Thursday. They will be filming many dogs and will only choose a few to include in the actual commercial but it will be good experience for Sophie and I can guarantee we'll both have a ball.

Here is her box trick although she normally doesn't go that far in head first before turning around to back in. (and yes she will be getting a bath and brushing tomorrow)
