Rescue Dog to Star in Annie

by sarahanadesigns

Last night I received an e-mail from Twitter recommending stories for me. I admit, usually I skip over these e-mails. But last night I thought I would check it out and I am so happy that I did because I found a really interesting story!

The story comes from dogtipper.com and will bring a smile to your face. You know the musical Annie? The one about the little red headed orphan? Do you remember her dog Sandy? Well, the musical is returning to broadway this fall and playing the part of Sandy will be a foster dog Sunny who was just 2 days away from being euthanized! That isn’t even the most interesting part though. Apparently, a rescue dog is always used to play Sandy – a tradition started when the show first opened in 1977.

The musical has also partnered with Pedigree and for each ticket sold through to December 31st Pedigree will donate 2$ to the Pedigree Foundation.

A very heartwarming story.

And here is another interesting look at the dog who is to play Sandy and how the original Sandy was cast back in 1976.
