Normally I probably would've shut the conversation down pretty quickly but when she started it with "this is probably going to sound kind of strange..." I was willing to listen.
We chatted on the phone for a while, then communicated back and forth some through my GMBD's facebook page. I'll have to admit while I was a bit leery at first, after speaking with her and gaining some more information, my intrigue grew. She shared a sound clip of her music intended for the video, a bit about the location and a brief synopsis of the video itself. Regarding the video, much was left and remains for the imagination but one thing was certain, Claire Vandiver has an incredible voice.
In the end, after I was assured the dogs wouldn't in any way be portrayed in a negative light, I was happy to do what I could to fulfill her request. When I asked if there was anyone in particular she'd like to include she mentioned Serious. So Serious it was, accompanied by my choice- Ritz. On the day of the shoot for which they'd be included, I loaded them up and we were on our way to Cassadaga to visit the Devils Chair!
Looking back, it was an enjoyable afternoon and absolutely a unique experience watching Claire and her crew during the process of production. And at the end of the day I was left with the hope the dogs had offered enough cooperation to provide that which was sought for the making of the video. Seems my boy Serious has ears up only for me!
I'm excited to see the finished product and feel privileged, both for the experience and for the inclusion of my pups Serious and Ritz in it's production!
A couple weeks after the video I had an invite to a doggy-play-date with none other than a pack of my pups and their people. Those in attendance included Echo, Rocky, and our host-pup Scrambles from Skye's Hurricane Irma Litter as well as Ryker from Getka's Valentine litter and his older sister from another mother Kaya.
Fun was had by all! The dogs remarkably well behaved and happy to enjoy one another's company.
Thanks Simone and Max for organizing the event! It was great to see everybody once again.
Pups and people!!!
