Taki, here. I’m the resident Distillery Dog here at Tito’s Handmade Vodka in Austin, TX. My people asked me to lend a paw with this blog, since I’m pretty much livin’ la vida Vodka for Dog People (that’s right… L-I-V-I-N). Recently, I was able to Skype with my pal Toby where he asked me some questions about our pawtnership with Foothills Animal Shelter for Toby’s Pet Parade & Fair. Here is what I had to say!
So Taki, why did Tito’s Handmade Vodka decide to become a sponsor for Toby’s Pet Parade & Fair this year?
Well, I pretty much laid down the law with the Tito’s Team, and said it sounded like too much fun to pass up. And by “laid down the law” I mean “I laid down in the grass for an afternoon, sighed deeply a few times, and gave some meaningful side glances.”
They didn’t need much more convincing than that.
What are you most excited about for this year’s Toby’s Pet Parade & Fair?
The Pet Parade and Costume Contest! I only wish our co-woofers in Austin could come along. Those pups love to dress up… I prefer to rock the spa look myself (nothing says “luxury” like a good mud bath).
What does this partnership mean to you?
This pawtnership is the purrrfect way to support our four-legged friends in Golden! Through Tito’s Vodka for Dog People program (I’m an official model… no big deal), we support animal rescue and wellness initiatives across the country.
What special drinks are you preparing at the event?
Our barktenders will be mixin’ up Tito’s Salty Dogs and Mutt Mules!
What does animal welfare and helping homeless pets mean for you?
An important part of the story at Tito’s Handmade Vodka is the innate connection my people have with us, their four-legged furriends. Since the beginning, we have worked by Tito’s side to bring his dream to life! In the early days, DogJo was Tito’s sidekick, and now it’s me. It’s a company of dog lovers committed to rescuing and protecting animals (and sometimes dressing them in costumes). The vision of the Vodka for Dog People program is to unite with friends, fans, and pawtners to better the lives of pets and their families far and wide.
But don’t take my word for it… hear it from the man himself (please note who the real star of this show happens to be… hint… it’s me, Taki).
