Our celebrity with pet this week is Marie Osmond. Marie adopted a dog and he named it George.
Who is Marie Osmond? Olive Marie Osmond (born October 13, 1959) is an American singer, actress, doll designer, and a member of the show business family The Osmonds. Although she was never part of her family’s singing group, she gained success as a solo country music artist in the 1970s and 1980s. Her best known song is a cover of the country pop ballad “Paper Roses.” From 1976 to 1979, she and her singer brother Donny Osmond hosted the TV variety show Donny & Marie.
So, Marie Osmond adopted a puppy named George at a charitable fashion show in April, and writes glowingly about the dog in a diary for Prevention Magazine’s September issue, on newsstands July 31. As soon as Marie saw her new pup, she had to scoop him up! Naming him George after her late father, Marie was part of an event that raised $700K the Washington Humane Society!
Some fan asked her about the origin or the breed of the dog and this is what she says: “We were told he’s a mix of German shepherd and English bulldog, but he’s more a mix of dancing elephant and a cupcake-fueled 4-year-old.”
Looks like my kids are getting a new best friend from the Washington DC Humane Society. It’s George!! Cute, right? – One of Marie’s tweets.
