Dog Day: Fame Has Gone to Their Heads
February 25, 2008
It’s so great to hear from people who enjoy seeing (and hearing!) The Girls in the blog. But I have to tell you, folks, what with all this attention, and then with the Oscar buzz happening yesterday (yay Daniel Day-Lewis!), they suddenly think they’re celebrities or something. They’ve even begun to re-enact famous movies.
For instance, here’s Chaser doing her own rendition of Queen Elizabeth (and believe me, she rules around here, too):
Here she is again, this time as Lucy in Dracula(the Gary Oldman-Wynona Rider version, not the Bela Lugosi version):
Not to be outdone, Elsie went ahead and rehearsed for Bull Durham (though I think she’d make a better catcher than a batter):
And my favorite, their collaboration on Ingmar Bergman’s Cries and Whispers:
I’m really not sure how to handle them with all this puffed-up ego in the air. . . for now, I’ll just humor them and hope it goes away soon.
(“Mum, truly, this is has to be the worst embarrassment ever. . . but, while we’re here anyway, perhaps one of these nice people would like our autograph?”)
