Ellen DeGeneres Gives Away Puppy, Suffers the Consequences

Posted By on Tue, Oct 16, 2007 at 3:53 PM


Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is in trouble with Mutts and Moms dog rescue agency after giving a Brussels Griffon mix named Iggy away to her hairdresser after the little bastard was "too rambunctious" with her cats. Fair enough, right? Wrong.

Here's where it gets complicated: When the rescue agency caught wind, they sent someone to the hairdresser's house and took Iggy away. Why? Because apparently DeGeneres violated the adoption agreement by finding another home for the pooch.

Here's my two cents to add to the chorus of opinions flooding the Chronicle's comments: It's a fucking dog; get over it. If only we took care of children this well.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
