UKpouchies on TV over Christmas!

Post by Trekky » 13 Dec 2012 14:24

Hi guy's

I have had to keep quiet about this while its been being made but its now been printed in the Christmas tv guides so now should be a good time to let you know...

For those who don't know i was involved earlier this year in filming for a one off documentary along with Odo, B'Elanna and Tora entitled 'Worlds Biggest Pets'.

The documentary is being aired on Christmas Eve at 7pm so make sure you set your top box timers. :)

Wow what can i say... Can't believe how big i was back then as i have lost 3st since filming that and how little Tabby seemed...

I just knew they would show the bite with Odo but what they don't show is the lead up to that bite consisting of him being handled for a good half hour before hand for the interview and gets stressed if he's held too long or there's lots of people around him then just before we came outside he has come face to face with our then new puppy...

I had asked them if we could use Tora for the out door shots but they persisted in using Odo as he was the biggest and that's who they wanted it featured on.

In reality the bite turned out not to be all that bad just a warning bite to let me know he wasn't happy :-(
