As you know I love my Barrett & Noel and just all dogs in general if I could own a few more rescue dogs I would because all these dogs need home and need love. I give Barrett & Noel so much love and they give me so much love back – it is really incredible. It is a lot of work and responsibility and expensive to have a dog so I loved chatting with Courtney Dasher who is Tuna the Dogs’s doggie mom.
I love celebrity dogs – my friend’s rescue is slowly becoming celeb status hanging with tons of celebrities – POM POM CHARLIE – a cute rescue that was recently even spotted backstage at our fashion show.
I have been following Tuna for a bit so it was so great to just meet Courtney Dasher – I love their posts on instagram about Tuna’s adventures. Tuna has recently traveled for a book launch all over the world and more then me recently — I need to travel like Tuna does. From rescue dog to celebrity status !

Tuna is a 6 year-old Chiweenie with an exaggerated overbite, recessed jawline and a magnificent wrinkly neck (a.k.a shrivel neck). He was rescued by Courtney Dasher in December of 2010 in Los Angeles when he was a four-month old puppy. A year into their friendship, Courtney created an Instagram account, @tunameltsmyheart, dedicated to Tuna’s photos. He now has more than 1.9 million followers on Instagram and more than 2 million on all of his social channels combined.
But as I mentioned, adding a new dog to a household is an exciting event. According to the American Pet Products Association, approximately 44 percent of all U.S. households have a dog. As many of us have experienced, the first few months of being a new pet owner can be tough – but they don’t have to be.
