Well, it was tough, but I got the queen up at 5:30 AM for her television debut. Everything went well if you don't count the anchor guy she bit when he let us in the door, or the weather guy she chased over the fence, or the other random folks she stalked through the hallways
Actually, it was quite uneventful. We were a little disappointed that it didnt' turn out better. They normally send a camera crew to the clinic and do a live feed from there, but this time they did it at the TV studio and really weren't prepared to deal with a dog bigger than a lapdog. There was this "OMG, how are we going to do this" look of panic when they saw her. They had Dr F interview from the newsdesk with the anchor, and a second camera on Trouble as they talked in the background. Kind of a back and forth thing. It would have been better if she could have been interacting with Dr F while he was talking.
Regardless, it was positive exposure for pit bulls, tripawds, and cancer. That makes it worth the effort. I have a couple of friends who recorded it. Will see if I can get the clip posted.
