Am going to be on TV! (+ Hsin-Yi’s Scary Face)

Gosh, just when I thought I’d finished telling you about my busy year…here is more excitement!

Last Friday, my humans got a phone call from a lady who works for the TV Box – she said she makes a show for human pups here in New Zealand, called ‘Studio 2‘, and they are doing a special show about animals on Tuesday (tomorrow!) and would like me to go and dance on the show!

Am going to be in there...?

Am going to be in there...?

Am a bit nervous as I have never danced in front of TV camera machines before…and I have never been in a TV studio before either… and how are they going to fit me inside the TV box?  Anyway, Hsin-Yi says we don’t have to do the proper dance routine  (I don’t think there is enough space!) but just show the human pups some of my tricks and moves.

So the show is at 3:30pm on Channel 2 on Tue 14th July, if anybody in NZ would like to watch…although I hope I don’t make a fool of myself in front of you! :)

To be honest, am quite relieved that this lady called because I was in Big Trouble and this has taken my human’s mind off What I Did. You see, after my dinner, I usually feel so happy that I want to run around and do zoomies but my humans won’t let me because doing zoomies with a full stomach can make me have a scary sickness called Bloat…so I get very frustrated and have a tantrum with the carpet mat instead.

Well, usually I just rub my head on the carpet mat and roll it around and pummel it with my paws a bit and my humans don’t really mind because it is just an old carpet mat for cleaning our paws when we come in from the garden…but recently my tantrums have been becoming a little bit more…er…violent and I have started tearing the carpet mat with my teeth and pulling out all the long woolly strands…oooh, what fun!

Then I looked up and saw my human’s face: Uh-Oh.


I get really frightened when Hsin-Yi uses The Scary Voice and gives me The Scary Face. Then I know I am in Big Trouble. I always try and make myself as small as possible and look very sad, so that maybe my humans will feel sorry for me and not be so angry. This works very well on Paul – but doesn’t seem to work on Hsin-Yi. She must have a heart made of stone! :(

Anyway, she didn’t make the Scary Face for too long this time but said that since the carpet mat was quite old, it was time to get a new one anyway. Whew! :)

Oh, lastly – am so very honoured to be Featured Blog this month on Dogs With Blogs!


 OK – will post when I get back from the TV studios and tell you all about it!

    Wow, we are the first to comment – how cool!! :)

    That is just amazing news Honey, that you will be on the tv! Not sure how you will fit into it, but i think it’s like a magic box, cos sometimes I see dogs in there and get very angry and barky, then the next second they vanish! Like Magic!

    Will you be putting your clip on you tube … purrlease? We not in NZ so we not able to watch! :(

    Good Luck Honey!!! So excited for you xxx

    PPEEEESSSS: Great timing getting that call when the humans were angry!! 😉

  2. JD and Max says:

    Oh wow, we’re so excited, we can’t wait to tell all our pals that we know a TV star! You’ll be great – and as the pointers asked PURLEESE put it on You Tube as we really want to see you strut your stuff! You’ll be fine Honey – oooh, we bet you get a lot of fan mail.

    And good timing huh – we admit we were a bit nervous just looking at that photo of Hsin-Yi’s stern face as she held up that mat, tee hee! Tail wags – JD and Max.

    our humans don´t understand a thing about our masterpieces! we´re artist!
    hummm got to confess… I´m a bit scared of hsin-yi´s face too… gee… she looks really angry!
    Sara makes the same face too!!

    Big kisses to you Honey!!!

    PS – I´m spinning already!!! check it out!

  6. That is so cool how you’re going to be on the TV show!! Have fun! We also don’t live in NZ but definitely want to watch it!

    That carpet looks like fun to rip up. We don’t understand why humans are so picky about carpets…why are they there if we can’t rip them up?

  7. Princess says:

    Congrats Honey on both being on TV and the featured blog award! That’s so awesome!!

  8. Jackal says:

    That is so fantastic! I'm so excited. I would definitely love to see a video of her doing the pivoting. I love when dogs finish connecting the dots all by themselves. :) Makes things so much easier on us. Maybe now that Jackal has had a break he might do it. I'll try again and let you know how it goes. I'm also excited about the TV appearance. I wish I could see it. Good luck!!

  9. Amber says:

    Wow, a tv star in our presence!!! That is pawesome Honey! You will do great! Bummer about the scary voice and face coming out….those human Moms can be very serious at times huh! I like to run behind the table and barely peek out when I am in trouble. :)


  10. Ludo says:

    Wow! How super cool Honey! I know you will do great and amaze them all. I very excited for you.
    Oh, I not like Mum's scary voice either, she make that whooshie noise that she make in the video. See how my ears wented down to say sorry.
    Still, it understandable that you need to rip something up after eating, cos it so satisfying!
    ~lickies, Ludo

  12. Oh Honey, congratulations! That's very exciting. I wish I could see you on t.v.

    ps: I think having a tantrum looks like loads of fun!

  13. Mango says:

    Holy crap! When I saw that photo of your Hsin-Yi making scary face I ran and hid myself. You are in big trouble for sure.

    Maybe you should remind her that it is better to eat the carpet than get the bloat, right?

    Good luck with your big TV debut. You will be a star! Careful under the hot lights. I hope you will have an assistant to mist yourself so you don't overheat.


  14. Laura says:

    Congratulations Honey!!!! Make sure to record it and submit it to youtube when you're done so we call all see how well she did!
