The US TV station, Hallmark Channel, filmed a movie in BC which debuted Feb 2016 called "Unleashing Mr. Darcy".  A few club members and their dogs were in this movie including 2 Border Terriers, a Welsh Terrier a Scottish Terrier and a Norwich Terrier.  Other local show dogs were also included in the filming.  The two Border Terriers that were primary dogs in the movie were club members dogs -  Gidget and Crush.  These Border Terrier girls are owned by club members Kristal Kenna and Cassidy Furlong, and their co-owners. 

Here is what Kristal had to say:  "Gidget was cast as a feature dog playing the part of Rose in Hallmark's movie, Unleashing Mr.Darcy. She thoroughly enjoyed her time working with trainer Steve Woodley; she barely wanted to come home!"

Larisa Hotchin attended 2 of the filming days with her Welsh Terrier boy, Mickey.  Larisa also participated in the movie "Best in Show" which was filmed in Vancouver in 2000 and was a major hollywood movie.  Larisa's impression of the making of Unleashing Mr. Darcy was that it was very well run, a lot of fun to participate in, and the dog trainers, Steve and Darcy Woodley, understood animals, training and their needs.  On top of that, Mickey, and the other dogs seemed to have a great time!
