News Flash!

News Flash!

Izzo and I were invited to be ambassadors for Helping Paws by promoting their upcoming fundraiser (Saturday the 30th at Purgatory Creek in Eden Prairie from 9 am - 1 pm) on a local TV station (KARE 11) this morning. We were interviewed live by Tim McNiff, the morning news anchor.

We arrived at the studio about 20 minutes before we were to go on and Izzo waited very patiently with me outside the studio while I got the microphone attached and was given directions about where to sit and where to look during the interview.

When we walked into the studio, Izzo was very curious about the lights, the cameras, and everything going on around us. However, once we got seated she made herself at home and sat or lay calmly by my feet. (thank goodness she didn’t start gnawing the chair legs like she sometimes does at home!) I was very proud of her!

Her part of the interview was to look cute, which of course she did with ease. There’s a link on the KARE 11 website with the video footage (about 3 minutes long).

We’ll be at the fundraiser for a short time on Saturday at Purgatory Creek Park in Eden Prairie…. Then it is off to graduation parties! Should be a fun day.
