Dolly Parton Offers to Adopt Dog Found at Glastonbury
By Annie Reuter
Dolly Parton made headlines for her electrifying performance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival — so much so that when a fluffy white dog was found days after during cleanup the festival workers decided to name it Dolly.
“Workers immediately named it ‘Dolly’ as it characterized Dolly’s beauty, love, peace, and sweetness just as she had shown fans a few days before while performing on the Pyramid stage,” a press release states. When the real Dolly got word of the matter, she took to YouTube to offer a home to the dog if the owner isn’t found.
“I was so upset,” she said in a YouTube video. “I don’t know how somebody could leave their little dog behind. I’m hoping that maybe they just lost the dog and that they’ll get back together. They’ve told me that they’re going to do everything they can to get the owner and Dolly back together but I was very honored and very flattered that they named her after me. We’ll take good care of her if that should turn out to be what we have to do.”
Parton’s 2014 European tour continues through July 14.
