Yep! I’m that lucky dawg who got invited to attend a special Red Carpet event in the luxurious W Hotel in Hollywoof recently and not as the next American Dog Idol. Let me tell you. It was nothing short of pawmazing.
I got to do what I love best – dazzling people with my unusual looks, special tricks and funny stories while helping to make a difference in an entertaining yet informative way. I even got a taste of what it’s like to be subjected to the pawpawrazzi who shamelessly demanded that I constantly pose for them. And I didn’t mind being “eaten alive” by such celebrities as Roseanne Barr. But hey, it’s all for a good cause, right?
There is no bone about it. Attending Red Carpet events can be a lot of tail-wagging fun. It’s hard to ignore the pool of beautiful people all in one place. Some with an “I’m God’s greatest gift to the world” attitude while others like me who are happy with an “attitude of gratitude.”
The way I see it, while it was fun to be treated like a rock star and have celebrities asking to take pictures with me, for me it was less about glitz and glamour or digging up dirt and more about leveraging the star power of celebrities to help me bring more attention to my campaign of hope “Fur-ever Friends: until no dog is left behind” and turn the dreams of millions of homeless and abused dogs for a fur-ever home into a reality.
As a rescued dog myself, I can honestly tell you that dogs don’t care about being a celebrity on a red carpet or how fancy is their home or food. They just want to find a fur-ever home with any kind of carpet and share the simple pleasures together.
It was so great to see how everyone I met shared my passion for ending dog homelessness and horrific abuse. Now, let me ask you what I ask the attending guests:
1. Do you believe a friend in need is a friend indeed?
2. Do you believe man’s best friend and the best teacher of true love deserves a minute out of your time to help save his/her life?
3. Do you believe you have the power to help make a difference?
If you answered ‘yes’ to all three questions like they did, then please take a moment right now to support my life-saving campaign of hope by simply visiting www.onespiritoneworld.org.
Chew on this…
The more you “Like” me on my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter, the more animals I’ll be able to help win. It’s that simple!
My goal is to leave my pawprints on a million hearts. Will you help me?
Finally, you don’t have to be a celebrity or attend a Red Carpet event in Hollywoof to make the pawfect impact. All you need is a willing heart to become a pet hero. So, wait no more. Go fetch and rescue a wonderful miracle with paws who is still waiting and hoping to escape the horrors of a death sentence right now and start experiencing something so spawctacular you never even knew existed.
Thank you for sharing a few stolen moments and a glimpse into my world where I live by the motto ‘expect the unexpected, and dream like you’ll live forever, but live like you’ll die tomorrow.’
OK, gotta get ready for another Red Carpet event but this time with Justin Bieber. Oh, boy…
Woof, Woof and remember to release your inner lion!
Cutie, The Lion Dog
