Miranda Lambert wore her heart on her sleeve during a private event at Music City Center on Monday (Nov. 3), playfully tugging at two exhuberant puppies. The event, sponsored by Pedigree, assisted on shining a hopeful light on shelter dogs and their journey from the street to loving homes. While the CMA Awards are a day away, her music and chart-topping career was the furthest thing from her mind, as he sat upon the makeshit astrotuf with bundles of joy cheerful bounced in her arms.
"It's an awesome way to spend the day," she had said, moments before the hangout session. "What a better way to chill out before the CMA Awards than to play with puppies?"
On her own Muttnation's partnership with Pedigree: "I started MuttNation Foundation back in 2009, and Pedigree came to us with a proposal a couple of years ago to work together. I realized that the goals we have are about the same — to raise awareness for sheltered pets, and to help improve shelters, to encourage people to adopt. It was the perfect partnership. The fact that a big company like this is really pushing people to adopt from shelters makes me so happy."
