THE CASTING COUCH

Been a bit hot this week in Olde Englande for us dogs.

So I've not done much at all. Been in a sit stay for most of the time. And a down stay for the rest of the time.

Know why I've been so obedient? I'll tell you.I've been hanging around waiting and a-waiting and a-waiting for the Dog and Bone to grrrrrrrr rrrrrring. Tee, Hee! DOG AND BONE! That's English slang for a telephone!

Yes. I was waiting for my very impawtant call. He's sure to call me back any day now don't you think?

Been in a SIT STAY waiting for a call on this dog and bone . . .



and when it didn't ring I went outside for a long DOWN STAY by this dog and bone . . . far from home . . .




No call at all.

Not one single grrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrring.

Mr. Steven Spielberg. Why didn't you call me back?

I'm really very good at recalls now.

Even when you call me Snowy instead of Eric.

You've cast the cute English boy as Tintin. (Click to read)

He needs his Snowy.

I hoped I would be pawfect for the role.

My Square Mom was Snowy when the Young Vic Theatre performed Tintin on stage last year. Pup, oh, Pup, was I proud? I was indeed. My Square Mom's a real wired star you know. A Diva of a Dog is my Mom Diva.



Here she is after being cast as Snowy. Snowy to the Bone. Pure as driven Snowy. Isn't she Diva-ine? That's my very special and forever pal, Matthew, holding Square Mom. He did a fine job looking after me, the first born son, for my first 8 weeks.

Now I'm not being impawtinent but I had in my mind that you might want to keep the role in the family Mr Spielberg. But no recalls from you. No role for me.

Don't mind.

Might need to be Snowy White all the time. Dog-a-blog-impossible.

Hey! Had a thought.

OF COURSE. He called one of you instead.

I hope so. I know so.

Was it you ?

See you on screen in September!

You would have been an excellent Snowy Eric. Maybe they'll re make The Thin Man series and you could have try out for that role.

I'm so glad your lovely Suare mom got to be Snowy - when Tin-Tin came to Dreamingsires, they didn't even cast a WFT but a white Scotty.
And I tried to get Jackson to take on stardom in the South but he was shy.
But sure one day soon Hollywood will call you - they have to remake the Thin Man soon!

By the way, Jackson sends his regards, we met up yesterday. And am seeing him again on Monday.
J1 one is computer quiet as she's very tired.

Jake of Florida said...

We had no idea we were so close to Greatness!! What a cool family tree you have. It's not something to pee on!!!

Did we hear a while back from Jackson that -- oh the shame of it -- the producers were thinking of using a different breed for Snowy? Or is this a new production?

In any case, our dog and bone hasn't rung either.

Paws crossed for you, square pal!!

Jake and Just Harry

Penny & Poppy said...

There must be some HUGE mistake! How could they NOT call you? You would be pawfect for the role!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy & Penny

Jackson said...

Hey Eric, I didn't know your mum was FAMOUS! Wow! You must get your devillishy handsome good looks from her! Anyway, I'm hoping you get the call. I think I'm a bit too substantial for the role! Hehehe! Jx

hey u got a famous mum...i'm sure inherit all the talented genes too...

Hello eric.
I feel time to wait for the telephone long.
The telephone is necessary there an act that starts being positive.
However, the telephone fee hangs when calling it too much.

As for the snow story of tintin, it opens to the public in winter, and the supervisor wants Hayao Miyazaki. :)

Good evening eric.
Here, a Japanese lesson.
The name of eric is written エリック.
KUSHIKIMI is written クシキミ.
If the word is added there a little, it becomes "utukushikikimi".
utukushiki is beautiful.
kimi is you.
This is "You beautiful. " in Japanese. :)

A wonderful terrier is nippers.
By the way, CD is this biddulph recordings.
It is CD in a good country that esteems the history.
It is the one reprinted from mastering the record.
Now what country is it?
