Lydia recently entered the exciting world of Broadway dog training. She was asked to find, train, and
handle two senior dogs in Broadway's revival of the Steinbeck classic "Of Mice and Men." As luck would have it her
15-year-old pitbull named Blue was available and willing to come out of retirement in exchange for daily car rides and tasty
snacks. Lydia found the perfect understudy in her friend and client Christy Allen's dog Violet. In fact, Violet was so perfect
that the director decided to have Violet play the lead dog and Blue continue as the understudy. Violet quickly became the
most talked about dog on Broadway and beyond.
