Today was a fun, dog-day afternoon. After much persuasion from family and friends, I took Makenna, our little Cairn terrier, to a movie audition at Windsor Park. The movie, Hattie’s Heist, will be filmed in Oak Bay in the spring of 2013 by local Oak Bay filmmaker, Prudence Emery. It stars Maxine Miller and involves a bank robbery, a senior citizen getaway and a little dog accomplice.
I don’t think Makenna will win the audition but there were lots of little dogs entered and the Windsor Park Pavilion was barking with excitement. To vote for your favourite dog from five finalists, visit facebook.com/hattiesheist. One dog a week will be eliminated over five weeks and the winning canine star will be announced on November 30th.
Another great community event that puts Oak Bay on the map! Thanks to all the organizers and panelists who took time to volunteer as judges.
