Like most people, I get a special sort of kick from hearing about a celebrity connection. Today my kick is from finding out that not only did Sherri Shepherd (co-host on The View and she plays Tracy Jordan’s wife on my beloved 30 Rock) adopt a rescue dog, but she found that pup through Petfinder!
According to People Pets, Shepherd adopted the three-year-old black Labrador from Baker Bridge Rescue. The former stray, now named Chloe, is enjoying life as a famous pup. Shepherd did note that they’re having some housetraining issues, but that doesn’t seem to have diminished her excitement over her newest family member! We’d like to suggest that she check out our Housetraining 101 articles.
We’d also like to applaud Shepherd for bringing up Black Dog Syndrome when talking with People Pets. My friend Amanda blogged about Black Dog Syndrome back in September. One major way of helping black pets is to make people aware of the difficulties they face in shelters. The more celebrities like Shepherd we can get on board, the better the chances will be for black pets waiting for homes!
