"Kirschenbaum and Chelsea, her black-and-white, 12-pound Shih Tzu, have hit the streets of New York City to film a "dogamentary," a "Sex and the City" -meets- "Best in Show" movie about the life of a star- struck dog trying to get discovered and the owner who believes in her prima donna pooch....With a special-made "doggie cam" rigged to her back, Chelsea does some of the filming, grabbing the attention of all who don't know what to make of the four-legged, walking camera."
