Book Tour Part 2: People’s Choice Awards

Continuing from Part 1 of my book tour, I was still in Denver, having changed plans to fly to LA for the People’s Choice Awards instead of the originally planned Austin (which was rescheduled for later).

Yet, since the PCA’s only invited us FOUR DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT, Mum and Dad didn’t have suitable clothes for such an event, so we had to go shopping!

I was super excited to be fitted for a new suit!

That is, until I was informed that only Mum and Dad would be getting new clothes… Since I already have “so many”. Pff.

So since I had nothing to do, I took out my ball and gave them a relaxing, elevator music-style soundtrack of incessant squeaking while they went about their measuring and fitting…

Then it was onto LA!

Mum was a little nervous though, because we were going right at the time of all the fires. Just look how smoky it was!

But by the next morning, it had cleared up enough that I could enjoy some sunshine in the grass!

The big moment was fast approaching, though. So for the early afternoon everyone was busying about getting ready, including me.

It’s just that these stupid hotels never put mirrors down to wiener level. How can I double-check I have my bow-tie straight? Or that my collar isn’t crooked? Or that I haven’t forgot to put on pants?? I can’t even tell!

Anyway, we got ready and car service picked us up from our hotel.

We headed to an airport hangar where they took us around back, with several lines of security. Finally we pulled in around back to the VIP entrance.

They even assigned me a personal security entourage.

It was a bit of a long wait while we awaited our turn to make our grand entrance to the crowd and walk the red carpet, that I couldn’t help but nod off..

Finally it was my turn up, and I quickly snapped out of a whatever mild slumber I had dozed off into as the crowd roared!

And it was only as I posed on the red carpet, with Dad holding me out for the cameras, did I realize that YES I DID FORGET TO WEAR PANTS!

As Oakley would say, “shoot!

Thanks for making it so obvious, Dad…

Anyway, it was still fun to pose on what was my first, real, celebrity “red carpet”.

On the red carpet!

In fact, I didn’t get a chance to take pictures with them, but Jimmy Fallon and Victoria Beckham walked right by me, so close I could have given them a high five if they were only 5′ shorter!

It was at that time I had to rush over for an interview. At this point, all of you – the fans, still did not officially know I was here! In fact, I wasn’t even allowed to tell people I was attending the show, which was a bit of a bummer, but oh well.

Anyone who was watching, thus had a grand surprise when suddenly there was Dad and I on the pre-show interview, where they presented me with my award for Animal Star of 2018! Wow!!!

But I gotta level with you, fans. I had actually known I had won almost a month earlier! But it was strictly confidential, despite me making several attempts to leak it to the press via my lawyer.

That being said, they had always told me there wouldn’t be an opportunity for me to come to the show… until just 4 days prior where they subsequently changed their minds and invited us! *Sigh*. A little more heads up would have been nice for us (and for all the fans who made plans to attend our book signing), but alas, that’s how Hollywood works I guess. Come to think of it, also how most girlfriends work.

Unlike the “big time” celebrities who get to go up on stage and receive their award, mine would be mailed to me later. Which, is fine. Honestly, I’m just so appreciative it did turn out that we got to attend the show, that I WON, and that I was even nominated for such a prestigious achievement, now the pinnacle of my career.

When we finally got it, Dad set me up a little red carpet again and had me pose in the same suit I wore to the show.

And of course, as much as my acting is beyond belief, my handsomeness unequivocated, my charm bewildering, and my charisma so sharp it could cut a cake… it was my fans who ultimately made it happen.

I’ve said it already, but I have the best fans out there. I wasn’t the “biggest name” in the nominations by a long shot. But one thing I did have over the others – the most amazing, dedicated, passionate fans. Me winning this award is testament to that!

And to say thank you, and by popular request (I didn’t want to do it at first, but was convinced), I’ve created this t-shirt! My goal is not to make money off this, but just to say thank you. So 100% of proceeds will be going to my local SPCA since I am their partner again this year for their National Cupcake Day campaign.

  1. Cru, you should add a picture of your fabulous Mum in her beautiful dress to this update. She works hard for you, too! Great job at the PCA and congrats from Oregon!
    Your friends~

  2. Crusoe I am so in love with you! You make my day so much better when I see one of your posts. Thank u for being so awesome. I hope one of these days I can meet you at one of your book signings.

    Love from Texas and keep posin’.

    • Thank you Mum and dad for sharing Crusoe with us! He really lights up my life and millions of other people’s lifes. Love you Crusoe! You are my sunshine 🌞💕🐕

  3. Congratulations, dear Crusoe⭐️, Oakley⭐️ and Family⭐️! 💘. Yes! You have lots of devoted fans who appreciate being able to share in many of the experiences of your special life, even since you were a puppy, sweet Crusoe. . Always a pleasure reading your blogs. Little gems of extra details in them. They’re even more special now that you have your Splendid show! You sure look cute scampering down that awesome, long, crimson carpet, looking snappy in your little suit jacket and bowtie. Forgetting to put on your pants is understandable under the circumstances you had experienced in getting there and on time. [If you hadn’t mentioned the fires in L.A., I’m afraid I would have thought it was a picture of a bad smog day in L.A. Glad I didn’t know when you were flying in, for I, too, would have been a bit nervous for y’all flying during that tragic time]. Cru, regarding your pants next time, just push your portable Doggo Ramp in front of a mirror. That way, you can check if you remembered your pants before running out the door of your hotel suite. Luckily, you were in Hollywood this timeloaura; a town quite used to the pant-less look.😅 I like the photo of you in the fitting room, providing steady rhythms of Doggo music and entertainment with your squeaky ball and precious little back foot turned upside down. You also perfectly match the color scheme in there; very cool, Cru!💛 Terrific group photo of the four of you handsome and awesome Gents. You know that you’re officially a bona-fide Star when you’ve been assigned special Security to guard your precious little butt!👼💙💙💙💙😇😇😇 So glad it all worked out for you, your mum and dad in the most worthwhile way! Thank you for being y-o-u! XXXXXX+OOOOOO
