One Pug at a Time

Hey, y'all -

Guess whut?? I got tuh meet a real live celebrity tuhday!

This actress gal, Mackenzie Phillips, adopted a KPR pug....Rudy the Rooftop Pug! She flew in all the way from Californee this mornin' tuh git the little guy!

Now in case ya don't know his sad story, here it is: last December, a couple o' warthogs from HAIL put 'im on some lady's roof in the hopes o' lurin' her out o' her house sos they could rob 'er. (I know! Horrible, huh?!?!) Now this gal was smart enough tuh not answer the door. She called the cops an' sure enough, poor little guy was up there freezin' tuh death! AND he had a rope around his neck that caused a burn!

Here's a pitcher of him tuhday!

Anyhoo, this gal got in touch with KPR and Aint Annie took him intuh her foster care. Aint Vikki tweeted about him on the Twitter, an' this Mackenzie Phillips gal saw it an' just had tuh know more about 'im! Seems she grew up with pugs an' has one now along with a couple other rescues.

Now fer you youngins who don't know who Mackenzie is, she got her start in 1973's American Graffiti.

But she's best known fer her role in the 70s sitcom One Day at a Time.

Oh,' she's the daughter of John Phillips, one o' them fellas in the 60s group The Mamas an' The Papas (one o' my mom's fave groups). Her dad's the fella on the left.

So.....after a lot o' communication with Aint Annie, Mack flew intuh Indy this mornin' tuh git Rudy an' have a meet an' greet at the Petco!

Check out this cool cake! It was almost too perty tuh eat!

Mack even got her own KPR hoodie!

Here's her an' Rudy meetin' an' greetin' Aint Cindy and Ellie.

Now seein' as how I am quite the performer (an' the camera LUVS me), I figgered I'd do a little audition fer Mack. I mean, ya know......she DOES know people in Hollywood!

Mack, honey.....have YER people call MY people!

Yep. Mmhmm.

Oh this is very exciting for Rudy!! We saw Mackenzie on that Celeb Rehab or Sober House or one of those, and she lost her pug on that show. It made my mom cry like a little girl. She couldn't even handle it. So glad that Mack has rescued Rudy!!! Yay!!


Kelly said...

Hanklin, I am so glad you shared this story! What a happy ending and we are so thrilled that it brought some more publicity to KPR- they do such great work!

Also, Hank... my momma is in love with your pug mug. You are too cute. But you don't have to tell anyone I said that... you've got a rep to uphold!

Hank, I had no idea you were itchin' for the bright lights! You woo woo'd like nobody's business. Rudy is one lucky dude with a heck of a story.

Momma and I are so bummed we couldn't meet her. It looks like you all had so much fun. And she seems like such a cool person. That was quite a performance. When you're famous you'll have to throw pawties with free PBR's and cheesyburgers.
