Comedienne Andrea Walker set up this promotional shot we did as soon as she heard I owned a Borzoi (Russian Wolfhound dog.) It depicts her supposedly askew priorities in life, glamourous evening clothes and requisite accessories of the rich and famous while her poor little child (her actual son) goes hungry and in rags waiting for mommy to notice him.

This photo dates from the early 1990s, and Ms. Walker appeared on dvd collection "Funny Ladies" with her peers Ellen DeGeneres, Margaret Cho, Wanda Sykes and Sarah Silverman amongst others, all gleaned from their performances at West Hollywood's Improv Club. That Walker deserved to be in this illustrious company spoke well of her hilarious 'burb-tweaking sarcasm. I haven't been able to find many updates on her online except for a few blurbs about a proposed sitcom based on her own life as a divorced mother of two sons in Culver City, California and her real estate sales day job vs. comedienne's life at night. Our Borzoi named Phaedra, however, lived to a unusually ripe old age of 13 and a 1/2 years, which compares to Methusulah for large sighthounds.
