Sorry Chuy … Chelsea Handler Has a New Love Nugget!

Written by PETA | July 30, 2009

As a dedicated Chelsea Lately fan, I was thrilled last night when Chelsea Handler opened her show with the announcement that she had adopted a mutt she has named Chunk from an animal shelter.


Have you adopted a mutt Lately? Why yes, yes I have.


Chelsea has joined the growing list of celebrities who are showing the world that the era of the “purse pup” is so over—compassion is the new trend. Chunk is definitely one lucky pup to join the Handler brood, because Chelsea is obviously as kind as she is hilarious.

Now, with a faithful new companion by her side, I’ve got to ask the question that’s on everyone’s mind—what’s going to happen to Chuy?!

    Chunk looks so much like my sweet mutt Bo that I adopted years ago. What a great deal for both Chelsea and Chunk!

    Have you ever noticed it’s intelligent strong minded and a lot of EDUCATED people who adopt from shelters? You see the Paris Hiltons of the world carrying around dog’s like luggage. I don’t think this is a coincidence. Kudo’s to Chelsea and Chunk..which is funny cause we adopted a boxerbulldog from the shelter 7 months ago..his name is Dexter but we also call him Chunk.
