Wendy was driven from her $500 a night hotel room in an SUV to the studios and later to film a segment in Central Park while her adoring fans applauded and photographed her.
Wendy was more interested in the grilled steak portion of the show than the attention she was getting.
Wendy, the four-year-old muscular Whippet from Central Saanich, has been called the Arnold Schwarzenegger of dogs, among other things, because of her muscular build caused by a very rare genetic condition. Her muscles didn’t come from long hours in the gym. She was born with two mutated myostatin genes which makes her double muscled.
According to her owner, Ingrid Hanson, "She's healthy and happy. That's all that counts. She doesn't know she's got a genetic defect and she doesn't know about any publicity.”
