Norman's QVC Day

by on ‎02-27-2018 04:39 PM

Hi... I’m Norman!  My mommy is Katie McGee, and I got to go to work with her last Tuesday to help celebrate Love Your Pet Day.  It was my first time on QVC!  I was so excited, mommy said I should share my story!  



Daddy got me up really early, since we had to be on TV at 7am.  I've been to QVC to drop Mommy off at work before, but I’ve never been inside.  I ran right to the front door!



I had to check in with Security and get a badge and then check in with the Broadcasting team. "Hi. I'm Norman. I'm here to be on TV with my Mommy. I don’t need makeup, and I just got a blowout. Let me know when you need me in front of the camera.  Which way to my dressing room, please?"



I've been on TV before, but it's been a few years. This was the biggest studio I've ever been in! So many cameras and people. 



Mommy!!! She gave me a kiss for good luck and some last-minute tips on what to do and how to act, but I knew all that already. This isn't my first rodeo!



Watching Uncle Dan present a vacuum while mommy gave me a hug.

When I see that red light turn on top of the camera, that's when I turn on! I'm a natural!

Long break between segments. Aunt Wendy is Mommy and Uncle Dan’s social partner. She took a lot of pictures of me. I'm pretty good at this. Just tell me where to look and I'll smile.



This looked like a good place for a nap. Pro tip: studio floors are always nice and cool!



I got to meet Suede & Payton. They're 2 of Uncle Dan's 5 dogs. We were on TV together!



We had to walk to a different set for this segment. Everyone wanted to stop and say hello to us, but we were very busy.



Making new friends.  Daddy is the background checking out my pics.

Waiting our turn..... just say when!



We're on TV!

What a fun day! We were on TV three times and then we were live on Facebook. 



Thats a wrap!  I got to be on TV plus I got to meet all of mommy's friends and co-workers. I had the best day... I hope they invite me back!

I would say your television debut on QVC was a total HIT!!!!!  You are very photogenic, and your personality shines through so strongly, just like your mom!


Come back and visit soon!!  We'd love to see you again!

Hi Katie!   You and Norman share the same eyes and hair color.   I enjoyed Norman's day in his own words complete with pictures.   And thanks to Norman I got to see two of Dan's dogs too!   And the kitties.   If you didn't do this blog I would have missed it.   My dogs are my children and they own my heart.   Share him with us as often as you can....  SC   Heart

oooooooooooh. What a love Norman is... Thank you for sharing your day at QVC with your mommy. HeartHeart

Totally enjoyed seeing Norman’s photo shoot on and off the set. I thought the picture captions were hilarious. It was fun to see such a calm, poised, beautiful dog in the company of his mom at work. Dan’s dogs are very beautiful and well trained, too.  I got to see Carolyn’s adorable dog, Rowdy, on her Denim & Co show. Energetic! Still waiting for David Dangle to bring darling Gus!

This blog was a real treat. Extra fun happening on QVC.

"I don't need makeup, and I just got a blowout" cute!  I *heart* Norman!

Katie, thank you for this.  You and Norman made my day.

on ‎02-28-2018 11:40 AM

My neighbor does that too - in front of her dog, she refers to herself and her husband as "Mommy" and "Daddy."  While talking in a baby voice.

on ‎02-28-2018 12:43 PM

Oh my gosh. He is adorable. I loved the pictures and the comments.

on ‎02-28-2018 01:27 PM

on ‎03-01-2018 02:28 PM

Katie, Thank you for the post.  Very sweet and heart warming.  You've got a cutie!!

on ‎03-01-2018 07:24 PM

Norman seems to be a very sweet boy.  I just lost my service dog Grayson in June and he looked very much like Norman. I have a sneaky belief that there is only one golden out there and we all have him.  When we would go to the grocery store people would stop us and show me a picture of their dog on their phone. They always said he looked so much like theirs. My Grayson never went on TV but he did write letters to his Grandma (my mom) and tell her how he was taking care of me and what we were up to.  He would tell her about our walks and him checking his "tree mail" to see if anyone left a clue as to a bone in the area.  He called it "pee mail" but he knew Grandma didn't like that word, so we changed it to "treemail".


Thank you so much for sharing Norman.  He did bring back great memories of Murphy, as well.

Ooh Norman, thank you for telling us about your day — and letting us see it, too. I'd like to see you come back! You’re so beautiful.  Just started to read your mom's blog and I adore her, as I know you do. Your dad looks like a nice man. I’m glad we got to see him, too! I love you already, Norman! xoxo
