Lassie IX’s Sister Tells Her Own Doggie Story

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Just because you’re the sister of the ninth Lassie doesn’t mean you get to go through life dogging it.

Lulu the Collie, whose claim to fame is being the sister of Lassie IX, is scratching out a career for herself as a celebrity pooch in her own right.

Besides being a Ralph Lauren model, she’s also an actress and can be seen tonight (Mar. 3) on the Jennifer Love Hewitt show Ghost Whisperer.

But Lulu is also giving paws to charity. She and her owner Coco d’Este, ex-wife of actor David Carradine, will be appearing at a star-studded event in North Hollywood called Mickey Spinardi’s Show Stopper Stars on March 11.

Coco says Lulu will be using her “Lassieness” to sell signed autographs.

The proceeds will go to New Orleans animal rescue centers still reeling since hurricane Katrina. The event is also meant to encourage pet owners to have their animals micro-chipped.
