JG: “A Christmas Wedding Tail the story of a pair of passionate pooches, Labrador Rusty and Poodle who fall head-over-tails in love. The two smitten pups conspire to get their respective owners, Susan and Jake to wed. Despite Susan’s and Jake’s compatibility, their new blended family – with five kids! – turns out to be more than Rusty and Cheri had bargained for. Now, the calculating canines must put their poochie powers to the test to keep their family from ending up in the dog house…. A Christmas Wedding Tail proves that a little puppy love can go a long way!
My character Susan definitely has her hands full in this story! She is a successful woman with three kids. Relocating to the countryside to raise her 3 boys seems to be a very healthy change from her fast pace life in the city and her attempt to achieve a real balance in her new life is almost there. And then an unexpected love comes into complete it! Even though love steps in, her career steps up and she is forced to choose between a country life or moving on fast into the big city. And the rest, you’ll have to watch and see.”
CBS: What are the Garth-Facinelli Christmas plans this year? What are some of your favorite family traditions during the holiday season?
JG: “Traditions. The girls and I love to bake Christmas cookies and give them out to friends. We also do this crazy huge village under our tree, with little people and snow and mountains and twinkle lights. That’s something Peter’s family originated, and our girls love it!”
CBS: Last time we chatted, you said you’d love to have a boy added to the ‘Facinelli Five.’ Do you have any special announcements you’d like to make?
JG: “No. No baby on the way. 🙁 ”
