When she came across an online news story about a puppy that had been tossed into a river and left for dead, the singer called a Los Angeles animal rescue and ponied (doggied?) up the money required for its emergency treatment.
The dog has recovered and is in the process of being adopted to a good home.
Let me count the ways I love this story:
- It probably makes me hopelessly unhip but I really like P!nk. Saw her live once—thinking I’d hate it but having cheap tickets—and it blew my hair back.
- Plus, I like people with symbols in their names. From this point on, you shall call me M@lly.
- Again: PUPPYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
- In reading this report on TMZ you realize that the pup is already back on its four feet. Which means this didn’t *just* happen. Which means that P!nk’s reps did not do a four-wall PR campaign to promote the star’s good deed. Sure they probably figure news would trickle out…but in this day of mega marketing blitzes, I’ll take it.
When people who’ve been given pretty amazing lives remember that they need to do pretty amazing things…well, as P!nk might say, it’s effing perfect.
