Celebrity status grants you a glamorous life…high fashion runways, red carpet events, designer clothes and accessories. Toast, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, is all about that life.
Toast is still a newbie in terms of pet celebrity-dom, since she’s only been online a year, but in that short time, she’s made the leap from social media to traditional, in-your-face media, as the newest face of Karen Walker Eyewear, and has over 217,000 followers on her Instagram.
Toast was adopted by Katie Sturino, a New York-based PR professional and her husband, comedian Josh Ostrovsky, The Fat Jewish on Instagram, who is no stranger to online popularity with 3.5 million followers.
As lavish a lifestyle as she has now, Toast wasn’t always so lucky. She spent the first part of her life in a puppy mill, and due to the horrible conditions, all of her teeth had rotted out, and she was often in danger of freezing to death, as her small pen was outside with little shelter from the weather.
Despite her traumatic past, she loves to be snuggled and will eat absolutely anything. She also lives with Muppet, another Cavalier, who is also a rescue. Sadly, Muppet is still very afraid and distrusting of most people. Sturino and Ostrovsky never forget where their furry children came from, and are hoping Toast’s popularity can bring more awareness to puppy mills.
