CHELSEA TALKS ABOUT GARY IN NETFLIX SPECIAL
In her Netflix special, Chelsea revealed that she first saw a Bernese Mountain dog at a dog show when she travelled to England for a project.
The actress fell in love with the breed and asked her assistant to help her find one after she returned home.
“Two weeks later, this seven-pound two-week-old Bernese mountain dog traipsed into my life and I couldn’t believe it,” she told the crowd in her special. “I named him Gary right away.”
She continued: “But I hadn’t thought it through because puppies are energetic. They wanna play. That’s all they wanna do. And their teeth are sharp. They jump on everything and they’re annoying.”
Chelsea went on to say that looking after Gary came with its challenges before revealing that the dog lives with a woman called Teresa now.
MEET CHELSEA’S OTHER DOGS
Following the death of her dog Chunk, Chelsea became a proud owner of two rescued dogs. In a Facebook post, the actress said that they are “brother and sister chow chows mixed with a dash of lion king”.
