Gidget’s Last Day

March 2, 2011 on 10:26 pm | By | In press, Uncategorized | 34 Comments

trew-and-gidgetAs I sit in my living room watching Gidge walk the floors, I’m trying to imagine what tomorrow will look like without her.
Last night she really fell apart. At the ripe old age of 16 her Vet and I have decided its time to help her make her way to the Rainbow Bridge… as they say.
He will be here tonight so she can be at home when she passes.
I’m going from crying to numb while trying to comfort my little creature.
Rather than just stare at her while she is pacing, drinking or sleeping….I’m reflecting
She’s like a timeline. Everything in my life will always be before Gidget, the days of Gidget and after Gidget.
It’s interesting that a little spoiled, star pooch from a pet store on the Upper West Side taught me about
the horrors of puppy mills and how important it is to use your resources to help pets in need.
Her little canine celebrity status help raise money for a number of charities. As a Melanoma survivor she was the dog of hope for “Tails of Hope” and was the canine
host of a number of pet charities including Friends of Snuffy. What this really means is… this little creature inspired me to do good things. She helped me become a better person.
I’ve had her since she was 9 weeks old and she’s been my mute little sounding board for 16 years. We’ve been though great family joy and tragedy, a number of boyfriends , one husband, apartments on both coasts, 2 houses and 3 cars. We cuddled in my NYC apartment on 9/11, and had wonderful holidays. She has been by my side for the ups and downs of my career. Her presence gave me emotional support during a couple tours of unemployment and paid some of the bills with her acting gigs. There are so many other big events and silly things that will always remind me of her. She’s a brat but she will always be my brat. I love her and will miss her.
I have no Idea what tomorrow will look like?

CANINE STAR FROM SEX AND THE CITY MOVIE AT SUPER PET EXPO

 

Suffern, NY, October 31, 2008 –Gidget, the scene-stealing New Yorkie who played Baby, Samantha’s dog in this summer’s Sex and the City movie, will appear at two upcoming Super Pet Expo’s.  Super Pet Expo is a holiday shopping extravaganza and animal lover’s dream.

 

“Meet and Greet” Gidget on November 8 noon to 4 PM in Suffern, NY at Rockland Community College and November 15 noon to 4 PM at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center at Raritan Center, Edison, NJ.  Bring your camera.  Take a picture with Gidget and receive Gidget’s custom Pawtograph for a small donation.  Have fun, glam it up with Gidget, dress-up in fabulous sun glasses and boas (provided) so you can feel like a movie star for your photo opt!  Gidget’s person, Mary, will be happy to delight you with behind the scene movie Tails and, if we are lucky, Gidget may do a few tricks for us including the special trick she did in the movie!  Proceeds will benefit Tails of Hope Foundation which helps save the lives of pets diagnosed with treatable cancers.

 

As a melanoma cancer survivor, Gidget is featured in Tails of Hope Foundation’s new comparative medicine campaign, called “Gidget for Good™” and serves as Tails of Hope’s “Spokes Star” and “Dog of Hope”. 

 

Comparative medicine uses knowledge gained from the treatment of cancer in companion animals and people to help advance medicine for the good of both species. “Tails of Hope is a collaborative, pioneering effort among general and specialty veterinarians, experts in human medicine, and the public, each of whose roles is critical to making progress in combating dreaded diseases in both pets and people,” says Tails of Hope’s founding veterinarian Dr. Michele Steffey. “We invite you to join us in our efforts, so that together we can bring hope to companion animals and people suffering from these life-threatening diseases and to the families who love them.”

 

Gidget’s Super Pet appearances are being sponsored by Citizens Bank, Doggyspace, Friends of Snuffy, Super pet Expo and Words and Pictures.

MACY’S SPONSORS BENEFIT FOR TAILS OF HOPE FOUNDATION

 

Gidget, the scene-stealing New Yorkie who played Baby, Samantha’s dog in this summer’s Sex and the City movie, will appear at Macy’s in Palisades Center Mall on Saturday, September 20th.

In honor of Gidget’s visit, donations from 20% discount tickets for that day will be donated to Tails of Hope’s comparative medicine campaign and Sponsor-a-PetSM program.

We can’t let this one out of the bag, (yet) but Gidget is in talks to do some amazing promotional work for Tails of Hope Foundation and her charity, Friends of Snuffy with a special Retail Partner!  Gidget’s movie role as Samantha’s dog in the film “Sex and the City” has put her in a unique position to help other dogs in need and to also raise awareness about canine cancer and treatment. This is the best use of celebrity that we can think of! Thanks, Gidget!
