Heigl Helps Pick Old Navy "Spokesdog"

by at . Comments

The newly-engaged Katherine Heigl is among a panel of celebrity judges who helped Old Navy in its nationwide search for a new canine mascot.

A Happy Judge
Six adorable finalists have been selected by the judges as worthy replacements for much-loved "spokesdog," Magic, who appeared in the popular clothing company's advertisements in the late '90s. Now it's up to America to pick the winner. From now until July 7, people can vote on their favorite pup on the Old Navy website.

The six mutts vying to be part of advertising history, even though they have no idea at all that any of this is going on, are:

  • Sandi, “The Bandit,” Bartlett, IL
  • Cooper, “The Athlete,” Plano, TX
  • Paco, “The Free Spirit,” Venice Beach, CA
  • Josie, “The Sweetheart,” Mesa, AZ
  • Bean, “The Live Wire,” Emeryville, CA
  • Data, “The Prankster,” Freeland, MI
Hmm. Heigl seems like the free-spirit type, but a real sweetheart as well, so who knows where her a

llegiances lie. In any case, joining Katherine as judges were Alfre Woodard of Desperate Housewives, Malcolm David Kelley of Lost, and Kristin Chenoweth, former star of The West Wing and an Old Navy spokesperson herself.

They selected the final competitors from over 120,000 entries, based upon appearance and personality from each dog’s profile. We're somewhat partial to Paco (pictured), but we wish all the finalists our best!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
