Taco Waggytail

April 23, 2013

As many of you know, Reverend Jen Junior’s husband is my friend, Holly’s Chihuahua, Taco Waggytail. They were wed in the backyard of a Brooklyn bar 2 years ago. Also, turns out today is the 10-year anniversary of Holly adopting him. I will never forget how scared and malnourished he was when she brought him home. Today, he is a total badass that refuses to wear any clothes other than a pleather jacket that says “Hot Rod” on it. He is spoiled, healthy and awesome. He is also the inspiration for Waggytail Rescue, an organization that Holly founded that has saved thousands of dogs (and some cats too) for which Holly should achieve Sainthood.

Please spread the word about Waggytail Rescue. This is from Holly:

10 years ago today my best friend came into my life. He was scrawny and scared, and had been horribly abused the first year of his life.  Two days after, two friends of mine died violently, and he was my comfort, with our bodies melting together.

 adoptmetacoHe has been with me through a lot since then, both good and bad.   Every night, he sleeps with his front legs curled around my arm and his head on my shoulder.  I smile every day because of this dog.
 He is the inspiration for, which has impacted the lives of nearly 4000 abandoned compaion animals, and brought joy to nearly as many families

In honor of Don Taco, I am hoping you will take a moment of kindness to do one of the following:
Donate to Waggytail Rescue- whether a dime. a dollar, or hundred dollars
via through the button on the site,, or gift card 
Post this link to your Facebook and any other social media pages – foster families are needed now more than ever
Foster a homeless animal, walk a dog at a local shelter, smile at someone with a dog, offer a poop bag to someone in need.  Give an act of kindness to an animal.
 Thank you all for being fantastic people and loving animals.

 “He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader,
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart,
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”

Wondering where I’ve been? Working on “Satan, Hold My Hand”, working a million hours, writing and taking care of the animals (Tenney is all healed and acting like an a-hole again.) Here he is chillaxing with his favorite drug.
