An entertainment icon who charmed movie audiences in such comedy classics as Pillow Talk, The Thrill of It All! and Move Over, Darling during the 1950s and 60s recently announced that she has once again taken on the real life role of a pet parent.
Doris Day shared the happy news with fans on her official website via a snapshot of her three-month-old puppy and a recorded message which also includes tips on holiday care for canines and cats.
Dubbed Daisy by her movie star Mom, the puppy found a forever home with the actress/animal advocate thanks to The SPCA for Monterey County– the same non-profit organization which once provided comfort and care for Squirrely Jackson, the poodle/terrier who became a part of Day’s fur family in 2012.
Daisy’s adoption comes months after the star said goodbye to a beloved canine companion, Duffy Day. Suffering from both behavioral and medical problems when he was abandoned outside of the Nebraska Humane Society one winter, the tiny Maltese who became the barking buddy of the Hollywood legend leaves a legacy of helping other special needs dogs through the Duffy Day Lifesaving Program.
