Shelter Dog Finally Got Adopted But Then This Happened…
[Rocky Kanaka] I don’t know what happened to Penny, but, I do know that I have to find out. And I know you probably want to know too. I mean, millions of people saw her video, because, that moment of compassion, where she decided to trust me.

[Rocky Kanaka] It just sticks with you. And, I volunteer at the shelter, but, I’ve been losing sleep at night. And I have been able to get back for a few days because, I just had a new baby boy. And so, I’m trying to balance that. But, I woke up this morning and I knew, that I had to give back to Penny. I can’t promise you’ll be there, but, we will get to the bottom of this and find out Penny’s story.
Kobe, Let’s go! Go! Kobe… He’s blind. It’s not his fault.
Not that one. Oh, no! They could’ve moved her though. They could’ve moved her. So let, let’s go check. But, I don’t, I don’t see her. She’s not on the adoption board, so she hasn’t been adopted. We haven’t located her yet. Her family may have picked her up. Let’s just, let’s keep looking.
Also, look at these cute little pups. Look at, hi! Have you seen Penny? Oh, look at all these little pups! Look! Hi. Could you imagine finding four stray huskies, all in a row, and trying to load ’em in your car, to get ’em to the shelter? Oh my gosh.

[Drive-Thru Operator] Good morning, how can I help you today?
[Rocky Kanaka] Hi, good morning. Could I get a puppuccino, for a dog I have available for adoption?
[Drive-Thru Operator] Of course.
[Rocky Kanaka] Okay. Her name is Penny. And we’ll see you guys shortly. and let everyone in there know if they need a dog, she’s available for adoption.
[Drive-Thru Operator] They’re coming to the window.
[Rocky Kanaka] Oh good! Okay. We’ll see you soon!
All right. we’ll be up here.
Okay. Penny, what time is it? It’s puppuccino time! Puppuccino time, puppa-puppuccino time! Puppuccino time, puppa-puppuccino time! Puppuccino time, puppa-puppuccino time! Puppuccino time!
Not impressed? But I think you will be! I have my fingers crossed that everything is gonna work out, just the way that it should. She’s gonna get a Puppuccino. She’s gonna get a family that adopts her. And if that happens, we’re gonna take her shopping and buy her everything she touches. So stick around, because, I believe, that that’s going down today.
[Drive-Thru Operator] My goodness! Hello baby!
[Rocky Kanaka] You want to give her the puppuccino?
[Drive-Thru Operator] Hi, baby!
[Rocky Kanaka] Ope.
[Drive-Thru Operator] Hi!
[Rocky Kanaka] You want it?
[Drive-Thru Operator] What’s going on?
[Rocky Kanaka] She’s like “What is this?”
What is he doing?
Here! Here! She’s like. I think she wants love.
[Drive-Thru Operator] Hi, baby.
[Rocky Kanaka] Yeah, she wants love!
[Drive-Thru Operator] She goes, “I don’t want food, I want attention!”
[Rocky Kanaka] She wants love! Ope, here we go!
What is that, dude, your first puppuccino! There you go, you did it!
[Drive-Thru Operator] She’s so cute.
[Rocky Kanaka] I got a plan. We’re gonna go out to the patio, and that way she’ll know she’s safe. And we’re gonna let her try this puppuccino. Nope, I don’t think she’s interested. She just wants love. Making you jealous? It’s pretty good.
It’s probably her first time ever walking on a leash. See how dart-y she is? But she’s doing pretty good. It’s hard waiting all day. I’m trying to keep myself busy, but, I wanna be here, so that, if someone comes to adopt Penny, I’m here for her. And if someone doesn’t adopt Penny, I’m also here for her.
The thing is, I’m trying to keep myself busy, because the anticipation is just eating me up on the inside. I’ve tried everything. I’ve, I’ve been walking dogs. I’ve sat in the lobby waiting for them, and still nothing! And it’s getting towards the end of the day. And I’m starting to get scared they’re just not gonna come. So now, I’ve resorted to being the Zamboni driver. At least I think it’s the Zamboni.
Pardon me. Sorry. Slobber over here.
[Camera Person] Rocky! Hey! I think they’re here!
[Rocky Kanaka] The adopters?
Yeah. Okay! Okay! Come on! Oh my god! 100%? Or are you still thinking about it, Miguel?
[Adopters] Nope, a hundred percent.
[Rocky Kanaka] I’m Rocky.
[Rocky Kanaka] I am so happy, Migel.
[Rocky Kanaka] Migel and Amanda.

Goodbye. I think that’s bye. Okay.
Let’s go outside.
[Rocky Kanaka] Okay. Okay. I’ll buy you anything you touch. Look, she is already attached to mom. I love it! No, You can’t have a Guinea pig. I draw the line at live animals. Oh, ooh! Did she touch it? You want this?
What is that? What is that? Whoo, okay.
Food, you want food? Okay, is it dog food? She picked out “Kahoots Chicken Dog Food.” Okay, here we go. The thing is, I don’t know if she knows what shopping is, so, I think we should help her out a little bit. Let’s set some things up.
Whoa, she touched that one! Oh, she touched this one too! Oh yeah! Oh, that’s a big one, for sure. That one? Oh, she’s grabbing ’em- Oh, she’s got this down, now. Oh no. Is she gonna buy a bed? Oh, I thought she was gonna buy a bed. Don’t buy chicken feed. Did she just buy chicken feed? The rules are the rules. We’ll donate it to the shelter. Oh no! Look! Wait, how much is this?
[Adopter] You’ve got expensive taste, huh?
$178, Penny! Oh no. wait, what’s her name now?
[Adopter] It’s Goose.
[Rocky Kanaka] Goose? Look at that. Guys. That is worth it. That is worth it! You know what we’ll do, is, we’ll use member funds to buy this. So, if you’re not a member yet, you should be a member. Okay. That’s it. I’m cutting her off. She’s got the hang of it now. I’ll be broke if we keep going. Okay, question is, what do you guys think the total will be? Okay, hit me with the total.
[Cashier] It is gonna be $391.01
[Rocky Kanaka] That’s not too bad, that’s, she’s worth, at least… I just wanna make it very clear that, all of you sharing Penny’s video, commenting, showing her love and support, it makes such a big difference.
