Best Man’s Best Friend

Caitlyn the Dog

Staff Pick

Caitlyn the dog is Charleston’s very own Wall-E. Or Gizmo. Or R2D2. You get the idea. The lovable pitbull had her mouth taped shut by her North Charleston owner last summer, sparking outrage from dog lovers all over the country, copious amounts of media coverage, and leading to an outpouring of donations to the Charleston Animal Society, where she was rehabilitated. From the first picture I saw — you know, the super sad one with the duct tape on her mouth — to the videos I post on Facebook every once in a while, where Caitlyn’s having the best time ever with toys, treats, and loving pals, this gal always tugs at my heartstrings. Sure, she’s a cute dog, but her boundless energy and wagging tail are proof that she’s as resilient as they come. —Connelly Hardaway
