Spike in a Milk Ad
According to an article in TV Guide (7/17/93
p.26) Joan Rivers described her diminutive dog's
as being "Half-Yorkie, half rat" and revealed
that Spike's hobbies included karate-kicking at
fire hydrants and sleeping.
His favorite food is rare roast beef sandwich,
no mayo or mustard.
Joan Rivers brought Spike, her other Yorkie,
Veronica on-air during her QVC shopping channel
appearances as she sold her own line of jewelry.
As Joan reported,
"Spike usually stays on the show with me the
entire time. Veronica comes on second. Sometimes
she'll nap, and sometimes she won't."
Joan also has a third dog named Lulu (Lulabell),
a Boston Terrier, who was
an engagement gift from Joan's fiancée Orin
Lehman. Lulu also appeared Joan's QVC show.
