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.
