Angelo’s pal Baxter was featured in Dog Milk today!
Here is a snippet from the article…
Angelo Surmelis is not only a former HGTV show host and interior designer, but also a successful furniture and home accessories designer. He’s also a self-confessed design geek and an all around nice, down-to-earth guy. His affordable line, angelo:HOME, is available just about everywhere from Overstock to Amazon to Bed, Bath & Beyond. This guy gets around, and by that I mean he’s a frequent traveler! LA and NYC-based, it’s hard for Angelo to have a dog, but find out how he makes it work.

Nicknames? Monkey, Monk Jr., Little Man, Bax…

He ran away from his previous home on the 4th of July (a fireworks scare, most likely, because he is terrified by them every New Year’s Eve and 4th of July) and I stopped by the Pasadena Humane Society on July 5th. I already had the name “Baxter” in mind and sought out to find a dog that was fitting of the name… and well, Baxter was perfect. He sat in his cell, dejected, and presumably resigned to this being his fate — concrete and chain-linked fencing. Don’t get me wrong, the rest of the place is an oasis on the dog pound scale, but nevertheless, it was a trap for him I’m sure. He wanted nothing to do with anyone. He was not friendly. Did not wag his tail. But, when I put my hand in the fence and called him over, he came… and rested his head in my hands. That was it. I was sold. This was Baxter. I immediately went into the office only to find that three other people were also vying for him, so I quickly asked how the process works – who gets him – and was told that whomever submits the application first will get first dibs at passing to the next level in the adoption process. So, I did what anyone would do. I half-assed filled out the contract, missing tons of vital information, and got my application stamped first!
