From Wags to Riches, a star is born as a Santa Monica rescue dog gets 'Fancy'

All parents think their little ones, either of the human kind or animals, are superstars. In my case, Sparkles, my adorable Pomeranian that my boyfriend & I rescued a year ago from Bark N Bitches/Jimi's Angels in Hollywood, has finally gotten the recognition she so deserves. Sparkles is special. She gets stopped everywhere we go & puts a smile on anyones face who has the privilege of being up close & personal with her. I call her the therapy dog for world. She is very happy go lucky & I believe has that extra bounce in her step because she knows she was one of the lucky ones & is very grateful we adopted her. Well recently, I decided to share her with the world & prove that she really is indeed a superstar. I submitted her on LA Casting for the lead role in a music video spoofing the wildly popular Iggy Azalea song, 'Fancy.' As if. Sparkles was chosen for the "princess" lead. Mama & Papa couldn't be any prouder. The hilarious video spoofs the original video with its own catchy doggy appropriate lyrics & even has matching wardrobe to Iggy Azalea's Clueless character, as well as her sidekick, Charlie XCX, played by another cutie pie dog, Ethel. I'm pretty sure Australian born rapper Iggy Azalea (whose real name is Amethyst Amelia Kelly) would approve because funny enough, she chose her stage name Iggy after her dog, Iggy.

It truly is a wags to riches story. To think that Sparkles came from an abused background where she was once given up & placed in a kill shelter. Thankfully she was rescued by Jimi's Angels, a non kill shelter, then housed at Bark N Bitches, where I was lucky enough to meet & save her. Cut to current day..where our little angel got to be the belle of the ball. We all had a great day playing dress up & Sparkles loved being pampered & enjoying all the star perks of endless doggy treats, brushing & belly rubs. The company who filmed her is called The Pet Collective. They actually churn out these parodies weekly, in addition to filming other absolutely adorable segments for their site & YouTube channel. PetCollective.tv has an impressive 321,774 subscribers. If you're an animal lover you must join. As for Sparkles, she is hoping her Fancy Doggy Parody helps launch her career even further & is anxiously awaiting her next gig. She has her own Instagram account (SparklesIsFancy), in addition to her Twitter & Facebook pages. Sparkles version of 'Fancy' (Puppy & Doggy Parody) so far has 21,856 views. Sparkles would be grateful if any readers of the article would help to add to the view count by checking out her attached YouTube video.

If you think your pooch or kitty has what it takes to star in an upcoming video, check out the castings on LA Castings (www.lacasting.com) & submit for one of their upcoming projects.
