A sweet Jack Russell hits the big time on a billboard in Times Square.

Who's that cute dog wearing the pearls?
Yes....that's the word around town... in New York that is. 

We are happy to report that we get some incredible reviews and mentions by all the folks in the know around the glitzy canine world.  Out Holiday press release was featured on a billboard in Times Square and that was a delightful surprise...especially for Roxy the dog!

Here's how it happened, Nick Tinkl a photographer that lives in the Ontario countryside took some pictures of his dog Roxy modelling a pearl necklace made by his neighbour Abigail Connell, a jeweller that has a shop 'Bitches in Pearls' selling doggie pearl necklaces on 

Sheila Bredin, the founder of used Roxy's photograph as the lead for a newswire press release that tripped around hundreds of journalists in Canada and the U.S.


Here's Roxy an ordinary looking Jack Russell Terrier from the Ontario countryside sporting a pink pearl necklace on a Times Square billboard.   Roxy's dad Nick told all his pals at the local hardware store that Roxy was featured on a billboard in Times Square - New York,  of course they all roared laughing thinking he was joshing. 

Anyhow life is full of surprises and we have lots of fun here at
