12 Years a Slave - Brad Pitt Movie being filmed in New Orleans

Just thought I'd pass this story along to yall.
My 17 yr old daughter, Destiny, adopted a german shepherd pup from the local animal shelter last year. Riley was so skinny, and just had surgery to be neutered. She was sort of pitiful looking, but had beautiful eyes!

Fast forward to now.
After a year of Destiny pouring herself into that pup, Riley has turned into a gorgeous, healthy, beautiful dog. A very SMART one!

What does all this have to do with Brad Pitt and his movie being filmed in New Orleans??

An agent/trainer found out about Riley and wanted to give her an audition/interview. Yesterday was the day and Riley passed the audition!!
She is "back up" in case the other dog goes haywire on set, then Riley will be the star dog for this movie. Riley is also being considered for other movies as well.

Not only is that good news, but they were highly impressed with Destiny's training abilities. They've offered her a job to train animals for movies!! Her DREAM job!! This is so huge I can't even begin to hardly fathom it myself!!!

Anyway - just thought I'd share our good news. I'm so very proud of my Destiny and her dog Riley!!!
