There was a time when nobody even knew Roscoe’s name, but there he was last week as one of the glamourous VIPs walking the red carpet at the 2015 CMT Music Awards.
Snoop Dogg once made a guest appearance at the awards show in Nashville, but Roscoe may be the first actual canine to make the red carpet guest list.
Roscoe, a rescue dog, walked the carpet with his owner Holly Marie Tong and her sister Hailey after winning the “Smile at the 2015 CMT Music Awards” contest, and it’s easy to see why he was chosen.
“I was amazed,” she said. “I mean I knew he had a great natural smile, but it was such a good feeling.”
In addition to the VIP treatment on the red carpet, they all had an opportunity to receive a dog-friendly spa/beauty treatment to assist in getting ready for the big night. Along the way, they also had a chance to spend some quality time with singer-songwriter Ashley Monroe and her dog.
“We’ve had such a great time, and we really appreciate it,” Holly said.
“It’s been amazing,” Hailey added.
