As many of you saw, Charlie, my little senior rescue Pomeranian got his first big job this week being the official Milk-Bone Red Carpet CorresPAWndent for the 2018 Streamy Awards!
The annual event brings together the biggest names in YouTube and social stars (we’re talking Patrick Starr, Niki Demar, Vardan Antonyan, Charo, Sofie Dossi, Nia Sioux, Paula Galindos, and so many more) for a night of celebration, and of course the award ceremony. Video above!
The Streamys historically only honor people for their great acts and content, and Milk-Bone, who uses the hashtag #dogsaremore wanted the same recognition for our four legged friends. Fortunately, the Streamys agreed so this year for the first time ever, three outstanding dogs were nominated, and Charlie and I had the great pleasure of interviewing them! Watch the video above to see!
The nominees: We had Louboutina (@louboutinanyc), the Golden Retriever who gives hugs, Pierre (@pierry_dont_care) the loving, and oh-so-fashionable French Bulldog that volunteers as a therapy dog and Todd (@toddaz), The Hero Dog that saved his owner from a rattlesnake while on a hike. And yes, I got a hug from Louboutina!
Charlie rocked the red carpet in his little suit and was welcomed with love and joy as nominees and guests arrived, everyone wanted to be interviewed hold him. Just take a look at the above report from the red carpet, followed by interviews with Streamy Founder Drew Baldwin, Milk-Bone Dog of the Year honor presenter, Gus Kenworthy and our dog nominees, Louboutina, Pierre, and Todd.
This was by far the most fun red carpet I’ve ever been on just proving what I’ve always believed, which is dogs make everything better. Or as Milk-Bone says, “#DogsAreMore.” The red carpet also featured a Milk-Bone Puppy Playpen for attendees to interact with.
The honor was presented by passionate dog lover, Olympic Silver Medalist and freestyle skier, Gus Kenworthy. All of the nominees and winners can be viewed at streamys.org
We’d also like to shout out Charo, for making our lives when singing “I want to be loved by you” to Charlie on the red carpet (you can watch it in the video above) and then posting the video to her Instagram saying, “I want to congratulate all the winners last night @streamys! I had an amazing time!! But my highlight of the night was my date for the red carpet @pompomcharlie.” Don’t Trust the B in Apt 23 was one of my all time favorite shows and Charo, playing Charo was a goddess! I don’t think she’s aged since The Love Boat. She’s amazing!
Thank you to our Milk-Bone family for your creativity, vision and for having us!
