Talent gallops in the family

I have been trying to contact everyone asking for pictures to be updated on the website of all of the puppies.   Its been a challenge with some and a pleasure with others!

Meet Klondike – from the Ice Litter (brother to Cinder).

I am not sure if Klondike is available in countries other than Canada, but it was a 1/2 chocolate, 1/2 vanilla ice cream novelty in a sugar cone.   Klondike’s facial markings reminded me of the treat, and so he was named.  His owner’s decided they liked the name and retained it.

However, it turns out that Klondike has talents that I was unaware of.  It appears he inherited his great-great grandmother’s acting ability and is featured in this music video: (he comes in at about the 1:10 mark)

Penny had parts in several different films and commercials but here is a short clip of her on the Shining Time Station special Queen for a Day.

Penny was a huge ball fanatic and would bark until you threw it for her.  The way we shot this scene was for me and Brian (Scheemer) to play ball with her and then throw the ball back and forth and get her worked up so she really wanted that ball!   When they were ready to shoot, I held her back, someone threw the ball to Brian as they counted down, and he put it in his pocket.    Penny ran to him barking for her ball 🙂  Perfect on the first take!

Another funny from this assignment.  I had Penny out of the studio and was playing fetch with her when she wasn’t going to be required for a while.  A guy came out and sat on the floor with me, and we talked about Corgis, and Penny and he threw the ball for her.   After nearly an hour and a half, this really nice guy said he had to get ready for his scenes, picked up his conductor’s uniform and left.

I don’t know if Mr. Conductor is in this clip…..but boy do I feel foolish not knowing who Penny and I were playing ball with for 90 minutes.  I can’t believe I didn’t recognize him!
