New Karen Walker’s image is Toast, the dog that unluckily was born in a puppy factory but that happily ended up becoming a star
The dog industry is cruel a lot of times. Puppy factories are a good example. Facilities where puppies are produced in series and after that they will end up in windows of pet shops to satisfy the consumer’s cravings. Some of those dogs won’t end up in happy homes, but rather they will probably end up abandoned as useless objects.
The dog Toast, an ageless Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, was born in North Carolina (USA), in one of these factories. But she was lucky, she was rescued in 2011 and taken to New York, where she was adopted by the couple Josh Ostrovsky and Katie Sturino. He, famous and multifaceted person always with his sharp pony tail; she, public relations from the fashion world. The three of them, together with their other dog Muppet, live happily in New York, where they have a great social life.
Toast has no teeth and that’s why her tongue is always out of her mouth. But what for any other person would be a defect, was converted by Josh and Katie into a virtue, turning it upside down, just like a toast. They opened an account on instagram for Toast and almost immediately she became an icon thanks to her unique style of sticking out her tongue. Currently she has 173 thousand followers, and she also has an accessories brand for humans: Toast Meets World. And for a good cause: promote adoption and fight against puppy factories. A message that also reached the New Zealander designer Karen Walker, who after seeing Toast posing on Instagram wearing her brand’s sunglasses, decided to invite her to be featured as the image for her new glasses campaign. This is the first time that Karen Walker features a celebrity. Here you can see the pictures, and we hope Toast’s story serve as an example. Adopt, don’t buy. There are a lot of beautiful dogs waiting for your in shelters. And you can use the money you save to buy sun glasses if you want [iwwd]
