If you've been living under a rock—which maybe you have, I don't know—then perhaps you need an introduction to my toothless little face. My name is Toast, and my rags-to-riches story will make you question why you have to be you and you can’t be me.
I wasn’t born with a silver Milk-Bone in my mouth; I used to have it very rough. I was used as a breeding machine in a puppy mill until I was rescued in 2011. (A puppy mill is like factory farming for dogs: the moms and dads are not given any medical attention, and—even worse—they’re not given affection, love, or space to play.) All of those puppies are sent to pet stores, which is why you should not buy a dog from a pet store. Part of the reason I love being famous is that I get to help spread the truth about puppy mills!
Oh, and since I wasn’t cared for, my tongue hangs out all the time because all of my teeth rotted by the time I was five. Do I have your heart now? Do you promise to adopt? Good.
Now, I live with my two less-famous siblings, rescues Muppet (the Rob Kardashian of the family), Underpants (who I can't understand half the time, but she's cute), and my mom, Katie Sturino, the best dog-ager in the game.
Do I still not sound familiar? Maybe you saw my nuptials to Finn Hearst last year on The Real Housewives of New York City. Carole Radziwill's dog Baby was a bridesmaid and Ramona Singer cut my cake! (I’d love to get into a chardonnay fight with her.)
