Oscar appeared with two other dogs on the WPIX morning show today with David Frei (host of the Westminster Kennel Club) and Richard Simmons (star of Sweatin’ to the Oldies). Living only two blocks away from the studio, it was just a normal walk for Oscar. The swissy could not fit through the revolving doorway into the studio, which was not big enough for a greater swiss mountain dog. Maybe Oscar should be sweatin’ with Richard Simmons? Luckily we found a hidden elevator (aka VIP entrance) a little further down the street that took us right upstairs to the studio. When we walked into the green room, the other two dog owners commented about how they woke up at 5 am to get there.
Oscar The Grouch (Swissy #18) and his owner David, thankful of being able to show at Westminster Kennel Club, will be donating $500 later today to Angel On A Leash a charity chaired by David Frei, which has one of the best therapy dog programs out there. Oscar encourages other Westminster competitors and Greater Swiss Mountain Dog owners/breeders to donate what they can, to help this worthy charity.
