Miranda Cosgrove says she has her Miniature Poodle, Pearl, to thank for her exploding career.

“When I was 7 or 8, I went on a commercial audition,” says the 15-year-old “School of Rock” star in an interview with People. “I took Pearl, and everyone loved her. I think it was kind of because of her that I ended up getting the commercial.”

Cosgrove, who is currently starring in Nickelodeon’s hit comedy “iCarly,” about a Seattle teenager who gets famous starring in her own Web series, says “energetic” Pearl, now 10, is a bit of a snack hound.

“When people have food, I tell them to steer clear because she can jump five feet!” said Cosgrove, who also sings the “iCarly” theme song, “Leave It All to Me.”

“iCarly” airs on Nickelodeon. The “iCarly: Season 1, Volume 2” box set will be released March 17.

In my opinion, Miranda is greatful for Pearl as anyone else in her life. Pearl must be a big joy to Miranda, just like my two dogs named Jack and Jill.
