No need to adjust your monitor – that is a blue, pink, and purple dog you’re seeing!
Chilly Pasternak is the psychedelic spokesdog for Helping Hands in Richmond – and boy, does he get around!
Yes, you read that right: Chilly married Baby Hope Diamond in a fundraiser wedding that was covered by the New York Daily News, a CBS affiliate, and a German television network. Chilly was even featured on an episode of Live! with Kelly (pre-Michael Strahan).
Then, after earning his Canine Good Citizen certification in December, Chilly began acting as a therapy animal.
In fact, he recently shared his soothing demeanor with the grief-stricken citizens of Newtown, CT, and he plans on a return trip to visit the children.
But today Chilly made the rounds of area vet clinics, as he and his owner introduced Helping Hands Affordable Veterinary Surgery & Dental Care. Helping Hands provides lifesaving operations for owners who could not otherwise afford surgery and would have opted for euthanasia.
Chilly’s brightly tinted coat may be shocking to some, but he’s on the right track. Once you meet a colorful character like Chilly, you just don’t forget him and what he stands for. And as a former rescue dog in need of a home and medical care, Chilly wants other dogs and cats to have the same chance at a long and happy life.
