Public relations queen Courtney Cohen is welcoming a new (adorable) family member ... her puggle named Wallis.
The happy union was nearly a year-and-a-half in the making. Cohen, who runs her eponymous Washington-based PR firm and previously worked as a production coordinator for George Stephanopoulos during ABC News’ 2008 election coverage, worked with the organization City Dogs Rescue to bring home her furry friend. The nine-week-old pup’s mom, who is half pug and half beagle, was pregnant with Wallis when she was rescued from a dog hoarder’s home in southern Virginia.
Asked if little Wallis will be dressing in typical Washington style, Cohen replied, “I vowed when I first got her that she wasn’t going to be all dolled up — then that all went out the window. I’m very tacky. I believe the bigger, the flashier, the better.” She added, “I would describe her current look, and this might be considered abuse by some, but she’s sort of like a ‘Real Housewife of New Jersey.’ Everything she has is pink and leopard and sequin.”
