Back to Petside 2010 Winter Olympic Coverage
A Yorkie named Gigdet, and a mixed-breed dog named Bear. Also plans to take in a rescue dog after the Olympics.
Q: Do your dogs train with you?
I do run with my dog Bear sometimes.
Q: Do you travel with your dogs?
I have traveled with her dog Gigdet (the Yorkie), but have not brought her to competitions.
Q: Are you involved in any animal rights groups?
I have become a spokesperson for the ASPCA located in New York City. I've gone to charity events, and also lent my name to fundraising efforts. I also try to get into NYC a couple times a year to see the cats and dogs there.
I trademarked the term "Hats 4 Hounds" and I am in the process of knitting 101 Hats (for 101 Dalmatians). I will be selling them to friends, and on different websites where all of the proceeds will be given to the ASPCA.
