Stanley was wonderful last night. The TV lights did not bother his eyes and he sat so nicely on the interview table. The entire station fell in love with him. Everyone in the lobby, including the security guards, stopped what they were doing to see him. One fellow immediately got on his phone to call his roommate "you have to watch the show today, look for the dachshund".
You wait for your turn in a boardroom with sliding glass doors. Everyone who walked by came to a dead halt in their tracks when they saw Stanley sitting patiently in the stroller. "Ahhhh", "ohhhhh". He had his own fan club by the time it was our turn to be interviewed.
My prayers were answered and his bowels did not function while we were on camera (those treats can sneak up on you, you know)
Ann fell totally in love with him and stayed after the show to visit one-on-one with Stanley. Her time is highly scheduled, it is rare that she can linger, but our boy is a heart-breaker and "resistance is futile".
Our "star" is still his humble, loveable self. When we got home, he sat patiently while all the others sniffed him over to find out where he had been; then a little supper and off to bed.
Happy Birthday Liesel!!
