yesterday i woke up to the devastating news that doris day had passed. i loved her, her movies and her love of animals.
she was a huge advocate for the animals on set. she refused to work on alfred hitchcock’s the man who knew too much, until the animals were better cared for.
she founded The Doris Day Animal Foundation in 1978 to help animals and the people who love them.
in the mid 80’s, when dog-friendly hotels were unheard of, she turned the Cypress Inn into the "pet-friendliest" hotel in the nation.

rip doris day. and thank you for all you’ve done for animals.
in 2013, we visited her beautiful, dog-friendly hotel in carmel-by-the-sea.
until we meet again my friends-
