Debby Ryan celebrated her 17th birthday on May 13th. As a special gift, one of her friends gave her a brand new puppy. She described the day on her blog:
Soooo, after my birthday celebration kinda turned on its side & resurrected, I was sitting in a beanbag in the California night among all of my closest friends, and everyone started singing. My good friend walked up with a knowing smile and, out of his sweatshirt, pulled the tinyiest, sleepy looking puppy with a little ribbon in a bow on his neck! I’ve been asking for a pup of my own for years, so I guess you could say he was a birthday wish come true.
We were thinking Presley, Archie, Spin, Thor, Berkeley, Quinn the Eskimo, Lennon, Charley, Sheldon, Benny, or just sticking with Little Man.. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts! P.S. Puppies are not accessories. They have feelings, require time, and often keep you up reeeeallllyyy late before waking you up reeeealllllyyy early!
If you’re thinking of getting a dog, you should check out local animal shelters in your area. If you love pet but don’t have the time and materials required to adopt, ask if you can volunteer at a local shelter or adoption clinic. All puppies want to do is love, so the least we can do is try to pay that forward.
Debby has yet to name the pup and has thus reached out to her fan base in the video below. She is asking if you have any clever ideas for the puppy’s name.
