Kaley Cuoco‘s self-proclaimed “fail” today had the best possible outcome – at least for new chihuahua “Dumpy.” The 34-year-old actress has been making headlines amid the coronavirus pandemic for encouraging fans to foster an animal – the “Big Bang Theory” star also put her money where her mouth is by herself fostering Dumptruck, a.k.a. Dumpy.
If you don’t live inside Kaley’s Instagram, here it is in a nutshell. Shortly after moving into her new $12 million Hidden Hills mansion with billionaire heir husband Karl Cook, Kaley acquired Dumpy – the senior rescue pet joins Kaley’s mix of dogs, rabbits, and horses.
Karl had already indicated that the temporary foster situation ran the risk of turning permanent. Kaley’s Friday Instagram update offered an update.
Kaley’s update showed her snuggling up to Dumpy with 2018-married husband Karl. The equestrian himself has taken to his stories recently with an inability to decide whether Dumpy resembles a “pill” or a “burrito” – either way, as Kaley wrote, the dog had stolen her heart.
Kaley was looking fresh-faced and gorgeous as she smiled sideways while holding Dumpy, seen rocking messy hair, zero makeup, plus a fluffy white bathrobe. Karl, meanwhile, rocked a blue shirt as he planted a kiss on the dog.
A caption from the sitcom star outlined the situation.
“What a foster fail looks like ? @apurposefulrescue @rita_earl_blackwell ?? Dumpy Cook, you stole our hearts!!!! ??,” she wrote.
The response proved immediate, with the update racking up over 64,000 likes in an hour, also bringing in a huge wave of comments.
“Hahaha Karl called this one!!! So happy for Dumpy he hit the jackpot!!” one fan wrote.
“Luckiest Dumpy in the world (and looks like pretty lucky humans, too)” was another comment.
“The world called this one! Lucky pup!” a third added.
Note, the above shot shows Kaley with dog Norman.
Dumpy joins the couple’s existing dogs: there’s Pit Bull mix Norman, Blueberry, and Ruby. Kaley is also an adoptive parent to two rabbits named Lenny and Simon – as The Blast has previously reported, Simon comes complete with his own @simon_silly_rabbit Instagram account, although with under 80,000 followers, Simon has a way to go before reaching Kaley’s 5.9 million.
Kaley has been filming her pets steadily as she quarantines during coronavirus – while the solo walks have seen the star miss exercise classes, the COVID-19 home time has seen the blonde say that pets are the luckiest they’ve ever been – precisely because their owners are home.
Kaley has kept active on Instagram amid the coronavirus pandemic. The star has updated her “A Cup of Cuoco” Instagram series from her L.A. home, admitting that she couldn’t remember which day of the week it was – Kaley also wasn’t sure if she’d showered the night before she filmed her episode.
“I’m living as if no one is ever going to see me again,” Kaley said, adding:
“It’s like I’ve lost the will to try.”
Kaley’s upcoming HBO Max series “The Flight Attendant” has also been forced to pause filming on account of the virus.
