Georgina Bloomberg, equestrian, animal advocate, and former first daughter of New York, has a pet pig and several pet dogs, one of which was a 10-year-old Chihuahua deemed unadoptable by New York City’s Animal Care & Control. A Connecticut rescue organization saved the pooch, which was wonderful — except for the time it crapped all over Gracie Mansion.

I adopted her from this group in Connecticut. And for Thanksgiving, she got to come to Gracie Mansion,” Bloomberg explained at the Humane Society of the United States’ gala on Friday, for which she acted as co-chair. “And she proceeded to have explosive diarrhea all over the front hall of Gracie Mansion. And we always joke it was her way of thanking the city for deeming her unadoptable,” she said.

Bloomberg was frantically running around trying to clean up the mess, so what did she do? Handed the dog to her father, Mike. And took photos. “We were taking pictures of him holding her with just, you know, crap all over the front hall. And he’s just standing there, like, staring at all of us, like, what do I do?”

I have a very good shot,” Ms. Bloomberg told us. Sadly, she also mentioned, “I’ve never been a social media person.”
