Long ago and far away Ranger had a call back audition for a Washington Lottery commercial.
In May I wrote about it here Life With Ranger
They needed a dog that would chase and retrieve a Frisbee on a beach.
Right up Ranger's alley.
At the audition, the animal talent agent brought along her Irish Wolfhound mix. A few weeks later I saw the commercial on TV and there was her dog.
What do they call that? Nepotism? Errr...Dogpotism? I guess they thought he would be a better fit for the part than Ranger.
I think they were right...but I sigh every time I see this commercial. Ranger would have been so perfect - in my eyes of course..
Poor Ranger, always the groomsman, never the groom...or something like that.
Egads, could you imagine the outtakes?
Ranger, I won the lotto with you.
