“My other half wanted a dog desperately and I said it isn’t the right time, and he said, It’s never going to be the right time.
We got on Petfinder one Sunday morning as an exercise because we were just beginning the search. We have two shelter cats and getting them was like an act of congress, so we thought it was going to take a long time.
We started the application process and filled out our first application, in which I realized Mike, my other half and I were talking about two different dogs. I said, it’s a 10 week old puppy in Mississippi and we’re never going to get him. Well, two hours later they called and said, he’s yours.
I was mad because I didn’t want that dog.
I asked the woman on the phone how this happened so fast. She said she just googled me and saw the trailer to my last movie. She said, anyone who made that movie, has to have a heart, so we fast tracked it.
When I got off the phone with her, I said to Mike, that’s our dog.
We’ve never looked back.”
