In a series of posts, the Southern Charm cast member shared photos of the dog, including revealing how great the pup did at the vet and the fact that she’s met Shep Rose, who couldn’t help but wax nostalgic about the days when Lil Craig was a little baby dog. Taylor noted that Penelope “can’t wait” to meet Lil Craig.
Fans recently got the chance to see for themselves how much of an animal whisperer Taylor is. Relive the moment from the August 18 episode of Southern Charm, above.
By the way, speaking of Lil Craig, Shep recently offered an update on how his pooch is doing these days in an interview with The Daily Dish. He’s been summering with Shep’s parents. “Oh, he’s so great. He’s with my parents in the North Carolina mountains. Lil Craig summers in North Carolina,” Shep said. “He doesn’t breathe all that well in the heat, and he’s got a dark coat and the sun bakes him. He loves the mountains ’cause it’s cool at night. And during the day, it’s not so hot. And my parents love him.”
By the way, in case you’ve ever wondered why Shep decided to name his dog after Craig Conover, well, we’ve got that answer for you. “The genesis of Lil Craig is this: My dad was a lawyer for many years. He’s retired now. And he had a client that owned a giant farm. And the client affectionately named a mule after my dad,” Shep revealed with a laugh. “My dad’s name is Rip, so one of the mules was named Rip. I was a child at the time, and I just thought that was so funny. So it’s an homage, trust me. And a jab.”
We can’t wait to hear the backstory on how Penelope got her adorable name!
