The Premier Looms

Many of you are I am sure acutely aware of my conspicuous absence these days.  I can only stress that it is solely in the name of art that I have not been blogging lately.  The making of my film "Leah & the Real Dog" and the planning of its premier have consumed every iota of time not already devoted to sleeping and canoodling. Many hours have been spent in the production room and I am fiercely proud to say: It is a Masterpiece! If you have not been invited to the premier, please understand,  I couldn't invite everyone. If you are invited and not attending, then you are, quite simply, unworthy. This short film will change your life.  It has already changed mine!
There is a great deal of buzz surrounding the film.  Rumor has it Nessarose may get an Oscar nod.  Of course without the brilliant writing and directing of this film she could not have pulled off such an intensely emotional performance. The trailer was released to Ellen, and I fully expect to hear from her any day now.
It is difficult to speak about the film without giving too much away, so I will remain silent on this subject until after the release this Monday.
On a completely different note: Leah and I, after much discussion have agreed that the Scots have evolved to the highest attainable level of adorableness in the canine kingdom.  The Scottish Deerhound, the Scottish Terrier, the Cairn Terrier, even the Westie- these dogs and others must get credit for bringing Adorable to a new height. Borzois, Afghan Hounds, even Salukis may be more highly evolved in pure elegance, but no one possessed of any kind of sense could argue the Scottish dog's preeminence in the cute and smushy category. Our good friend Colleen suggested the Dachshund in the running, and though they are masters at performing the perfect doughnut, they lack the scruffiliciousness of the Scottish breeds.  This has to place them behind the Scottish dog in the run for smushable cuteness.  To quote the great Mike Myers- "If it's not Scottish It's Crrrrap!!!"
I expect after the premier I will have vastly more time to devote to these important philosophical matters, the preeminence of the Scottish dog being only the tip of the iceberg.  I hope to delve deep into some of the deeper matters touched upon in the film, such as the epidemic of dog-like creatures from outer space, as well as the inner-workings of the human mind and the very confusing and complex matter of Cats.  Why do they exist? Also, does cheese bring us closer to Nirvana?

I look forward to seeing everyone at the premier!  This is THE absolute IT event of the summer.  Don't miss it.
