After adopting a rescue dog a few weeks ago, Conrad couldn't help but rave about the puppy named Fitz.
"He is a wonderful, well-mannered, sweet little guy," she wrote on her blog last week, but she may have spoken too soon.

"I thought your shoe was a snack," reads a handwritten note in a photo Conrad posted on Instagram with the hashtag #dogshaming.
Dogshaming, a blog that went viral earlier this year, calls pooches out for their canine indiscretions, and it seems Conrad is a fan of this Internet-based training technique.
Conrad will have more fun to look forward to as Fitz gets bigger. "Since I don't know exactly what Fitz's breed is, it will be a surprise to see how big he grows," she wrote. "I was told he will be 30 pounds max, but we will see about that. When I got Chloe, the pound said she would be 40 pounds max…and now she is pushing 70!"
