You know how they say life is stranger than fiction? Well, I have a grandweiny story for you.
My oldest daughter, H, has an adorable Dachshund. He's cute, cuddly, and charming--everything you could want in a dog.
When she visited us in the summer, she took a picture of him beside a Weiner sculpture and shared it in a Facebook group for Dachshund lovers.
A few days later a film studio called her asking if she would consider letting her dog be part of a commercial. Now you might think they would use her beautiful image to sell cereal, or toys, or small sweaters, but no, they wanted her for something else.
Wait for it.
They wanted the weiner dog to star in a commercial selling erectile dysfunction medication. Yup, our little weiney was asked to advertise for big weinies. When my daughter stopped laughing and checked everything out, it turned out the offer was legit.
So, a few weeks later, my grandweiny shot her first commercial. I've only seen the blooper tape. An extraordinarily happy guy walks down a park trail with three weenies on lead. Of course, they all go in different directions and he almost trips over their leads. I laughed so hard I had to cross my legs. I now call my grandweiny, Hollywood.
In other news. the first book in the Perfect Brew series is now free. I've sent 3 Reasons to Not Kiss a Warlock off to my beta readers, and I'm working on Ophelia's story.
