No matter what you think of dyeing Poodle fur, you have to admit Chili Pasternak can provide comfort and joy just by his presence. He was one of many therapy dogs who came at their owners' expense to Newtown, Connecticut recently. Chili was accompanied by his owner Jake Pasternak.
Chili is becoming a Poodle celebrity. He was chosen by online viewers in July to be the groom at the world’s most expensive dog wedding. Goods and services were donated and all proceeds went to help homeless dogs.
It's been suggested that Chili looks a lot like Jerry Garcia. At least they both have made people happy.
