Newcomer Brooke Eden, who’s new single, “Act Like You Don’t,” was released in February, isn’t acting like she doesn’t have mad love for her brand new puppy, Dolly.
“I love her,” Brooke tells Nash Country Daily.
The Florida native recently became a new mom to the 6-month old Maltese Yorkie Poodle, who weighs in at only 9 lbs., and she couldn’t be more enamored with her furry friend.
“I’m a new puppy mom,” shares Brooke. “She’s a hippie dog. She’s from California. She’s a Morkie Poo. So she’s a glorified mutt—a Maltese Yorkie Poodle. She’s almost 6 months and she’s the sweetest thing. I now know what it feels like to love something so much. I would definitely put her above anything for me.”
With her first-ever headlining Welcome To The Weekend Tour kicking off Thursday (March 2) in Portland Maine, Brooke will have Dolly join her on the road when she can. But if circumstances prevent traveling with mom, Dolly, who hasn’t met a stranger she doesn’t like, has plenty of people to take care of her while mom’s away.
“Sometimes I’ll leave her home. She has a lot of aunts and uncles in town. She’s really really good with not being needy,” adds Brooke. “I do like to take her out on the road when I can. She’s like my mascot. She’s so social, she loves everyone. She loves me, but I’m not kidding, I was on a plane with a stranger next to me and she crawled up on the stranger’s lap and I’m like, ‘I’m so sorry’ and she’s like, ‘Oh, I love dogs. It’s OK.’ She just loves people.”
The 28-year-old beauty has been sharing adorable moments with Dolly on Instagram and posted a video of her and Dolly having a dance party while her current single, “Act Like You Don’t,” plays on the radio.
“Hometown L O V E: @1031wirk played #ActLikeYouDont today! I listened online from a parking lot in Nashville. Dolly and I had a dance party. It was so many feels. Thanks for always supporting your hometown girl. I’ll always be proud of my roots,” says Brooke in the caption.
