Talk about a nice landing!
The dog that fell out of Kathie Lee Gifford arms during a live segment of the Today show has been adopted.
The homeless pooch took a dive into a pen full of adoptable pups on Oct. 11, and though the dog wasn’t injured, Gifford was feeling wounded afterward.
“The puppy’s ok, but I m a wreck,” she told Matt Lauer. “It’s very upsetting for me. I have three dogs of my own and I adore dogs.”
Gifford is happy things worked out for the slippery little guy. “I’m so glad,” she said on the show Wednesday, “And it’s far, far, far away from me.”
