gH’s Eden McCoy and her par­ents have wel­comed Poké into the fam­ily in a big way. Since they res­cued the se­nior dog from the shel­ter OC An­i­mal Care, they’ve fat­tened her up with ta­ble foods and let her get in on all the fam­ily fun — even “fur” the hol­i­days. “She gets presents un­der the tree,” con­firms Joss­lyn’s por­trayer. “Last year, she got a Christ­mas sweater.

“We don’t ac­tu­ally do Christ­mas sweaters in my fam­ily, but I also got one from a friend last year,” she adds. “It’s pretty bad. It’s red and white, and it’s like Santa — it has his belt on it and things like that. I liked mine more than Poké liked hers. She wasn’t a big fan!”

Poké also isn’t a big fan of dog food — at least not that she knows of. “She just eats what­ever we eat,” McCoy ex­plains. “When I have a waf­fle for break­fast, she’ll have a waf­fle. We just make a plate for her. It’s so bad, I know!”

On her first hol­i­day with her new­found fam­ily, how­ever, Poké didn’t get to eat with the clan. “She ate our left­overs, be­cause we al­ways go out to din­ner for Christ­mas,” McCoy ex­plains. “I think the roast beef was her fa­vorite. She loves meat!”

McCoy’s tiny best friend has turned out to be ev­ery­thing she ever wanted… well, sort of! “She re­ally is my mom’s dog,” ad­mits the teen, who wishes she was the one Poké slept with and fol­lowed around. In fact, the thing she most wants for Christ­mas this year is a res­cue of her own! “I’d like one who likes me. Plus, Poké would have a friend, so I can leave

“I love when Poké lays next to me when she sleeps,” says McCoy, who’s an­gling to get to res­cue an­other dog this Christ­mas. “I’ve been tex­ting my mom pic­tures of dogs from school!”

them at home to­gether.

“But that’s def­i­nitely not hap­pen­ing,” she adds with a sigh. “I don’t think my par­ents will get me an­other one.”

Or will they? “We’ll see… we’ll see,” hedges the ac­tress’ mother, Natasha McCoy. “It’s hard to re­sist all these pic­tures she’s been tex­ting me from res­cue sites. They all look sim­i­lar to Poké, with scruffy lit­tle faces.”

It sounds like Santa may just be in McCoy’s cor­ner on this one!
