It seems like every day, we learn something new about Elvis the neighbor’s dog, the Chihuahua who has been semi-adopted by Cameran Eubanks’ husband Jason. Today, it’s that Cameran got pregnant partially because of Elvis, who still technically lives at the neighbor’s house, despite spending all of his free time with Jason.
Cameran was in the bathtub, apparently, when she made the decision to take the pregnancy plunge despite previous hesitations. She was thinking of how much her “sweet man” loved Elvis. “I need to give him a child,” she thought to herself. A child to distract Jason from his obsession with Elvis.
Here we are a year or so later, and Elvis is still in Jason and Cam’s life. In fact, he even was an integral part of their birth story, attending childbirth classes with Cam while Jason was at work. It’s arguable that he is as much of a child to the couple as their own daughter, Palmer — Elvis does pose in Palmer’s clothing, after all.
Another fun fact we found out from the Southern Charm After Show is that Elvis is 15 — actually that fact is sad, not fun! Cameran suspects that Elvis will cross the “rainbow bridge” sooner rather than later. To prolong his life, she divulges, Jason is spending $45 a bag on dog food so that he has the healthiest diet possible.
And here’s the craziest thing — Jason has even looked into cloning Elvis! It would cost $45,000, but the price hasn’t dissuaded him. That’s how much he wants to keep his little boy around.
As to what the neighbors think? Apparently, they call Jason “weird boy.” Cameran says despite Elvis spending so much time with Jason, they are actually wonderful parents to their canine child. It’s just that Jason and Elvis have the kind of bond that only happens once in a lifetime — unless you clone it.
Chelsea Meissner concurs. In the After Show, she recalls a recent lunch she had with the couple, to which Jason brought … Elvis, of course. After the meal, he left the ladies so that he could take Elvis to see the ocean.
“His toes have never touched the sand before,” he told the girls.
Those two! Seriously though, Cam, keep the stories coming. We can’t get enough of the couple of the century.
