Toast Meets World with SadieToast Meets World is the adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who was rescued from a Puppy Mill in North Carolina in 2011 by fashion model and publicist Katie Sturino. Toast’s mom, who is already Instagram famous herself, helped launch her dog’s career and is helping Toast live up to her “meets world” name in NYC. “Toasty” has met everyone from celebrities to supermodels while walking the red carpet, going to film sets and even appearing on Good Morning America. And Toast is using her celebrity dog status to raise awareness for pet adoption and rescue.

In 2016, Toast married her fellow furry friend Finn and the two registered on Zola Wedding Registry to gather contributions for puppy mill rescue organizations. On top of that, Toast has a book (ToastHampton: How to Summer in Style) and amazing style. We count ourselves so lucky to have had the pleasure of meeting Toast (and her adorable tongue) last month. We took the opportunity to ask her a few questions for our latest Top Dog interview.

You have a great sense of style, were do you get it from?

Thank you! I totally take cues from my stage mom, Katie Sturino of The 12ish Style. I’d have to say my other style icon is Iris Apfel. My fashion motto is “the bigger, the better”, and obviously be chic… duh.

You’re from NC but what do you love about living in NYC?

It’s true, I’m a Southern girl at heart. I love NYC though – the shopping, great restaurants, and hanging out with fellow models like Karlie Kloss.

If you could have toast with anyone who would it be and why?

I would have toast with Anna Wintour to discuss putting me on the cover of Vogue. I am a model after all…

Any “pet” peeves?

Definitely when my sisters Muppets Revenge and Underpants the Dog try to steal the spotlight from me. They’re always complaining because they’re less famous.

Tell us what it’s like to share the spotlight with your siblings?

Honestly, it’s my pet peeve! I understand that Muppet feels threatened by my stardom, but I can’t help it that I’m prettier. At the end of the day though, I still love her.

Any details you can share about your wedding to Finn?

Toast Meets World in wedding dressMy wedding day was one of the most glamorous days of my life. I wore a custom Marchesa wedding dress and tonsssss of diamonds. My wedding even ended up on an episode of The Real Housewives of New York!

How can people help the dog community?

You can always help when you adopt, don’t shop! Rescuing a dog is the best way to help former puppy mill pups.

Any advice for dogs looking to become internet famous?

You have to have an edge. Find something that makes you different and run with it!

Who are your top celebrity crushes?

Hmm… besides myself? I love Kate Upton, and Simon Doonan walked me down the aisle at my wedding. Don’t tell Finn, but Menswear Dog is a HUNK!

Anything else you’d like to add?

ToastHampton: How to Summer in StyleHave you purchased your copy of Toast Hampton yet? It’s my book that I released last May! Plus, a portion of book sales go to puppy mill awareness – adopt, don’t shop!!!

About The Author:

Sadie graduated from the Moody School of Communications at the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors in Advertising and minor in Business. Her love of pets started from an early age with her childhood cocker spaniel, Peanut, and two cats. She is currently dog mom to Lexie, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

As a professional dog sitter for more than a decade, Sadie has cared for dozens of canines of various breeds, sizes and temperaments. The responsibility of caring for others' pets has helped her understand the importance of giving animals a loving home. She has experience potty and house training as well as teaching dogs tricks such as sit and shake. Sadie is passionate about canine well-being so she feeds her pup all-natural meals and no table scraps.

Sadie and her husband live in Washington DC and enjoy walking Lexie to nearby dog parks or patios and taking her canine companion on trips. Having an adventurous, long-haired Blenheim means frequent baths and home grooming to maintain a clean coat. A small dog also requires more frequent dental care and Sadie is proactive with Lexie's oral hygiene.

She has been covering dog-related topics since 2012 and is proud to share her latest personal experience, resources and information with fellow pet parents. Her expertise has appeared in many notable media outlets, including The New York Times' Wirecutter, Forbes, People, Reader's Digest, Apartment Therapy, and other regional news organizations.
