Letting a Homeless Dog Pick His First Meal!

Letting a Homeless Dog Pick His First Meal!

November 11, 2019 100 By William Morgan


– This is Bosco, and
Bosco is a homeless dog,
but today I’m gonna let him pick out
any of the ingredients that he wants,
and I’m gonna give him his
first home cooked meal.
That’s a good boy, you’re a good boy!
Okay, here’s how it’s gonna work.
I’m gonna cook Basco the
best dinner he’s ever had
in his life, and the fun part is
he gets to pick out his ingredients.
So, whatever vegetable,
carb-protein he wants,
we’re gonna make it for him.
And we’re gonna let his friend,
Freddy Mercury, do the same thing.
Now I love cooking for any dog,
but showing Bosco some extra love today
is really important, and I think
when you hear his backstory
you’ll agree with me.
You see Bosco had a family,
but they needed to move,
and they felt he was an inconvenience.
So, they called someone to put him down.
Now he’s old, but he’s not that old.
It makes me really sad
to know that Bosco gave
unconditional love for most of his life,
and then the people that were supposed to
love and care for him, just
turned their backs on him.
They were moments away from
using the needle to inject him,
when someone said not on my watch.
And that’s where Marley’s Mutts comes in.
Zach, the founder of Marley’s Mutts
takes the dogs that nobody else wants.
Him and his team save
thousands of dogs every year.
Okay, the exciting part is coming,
whether Bosco and Freddy will pick
lobster, or steak, or salmon.
But first everybody knows,
you gotta pick your veggies.
Get it, which one?
(Bosco panting)
(Bosco sniffing)
I think he loves the cauliflower.
(crowd cheering)
Who woulda guessed
you’re a cauliflower guy?
Okay, okay, oh, wow!
(Bosco grunting)
Oh, yeah, that’s good too.
Okay, okay, you’re a blue berry guy.
So, let’s throw some
of those in there too.
Let’s see if he likes carrots.
You want a carrot?
Some spinach?
(Bosco sniffs)
No, (laughs) no spinach.
Which one?
(Bosco sniffing)
(laughs) Oh yeah, okay okay, good boy,
good boy (laughs), he’s going for it.
Man, he’s like me, man
he loves those carbs.
What about, you know sweet potatoes?
I mean, you picked the rice but,
not interested (laughs),
he wants the rice.
Coming up next will be his protein,
we have steak, we have
salmon, we have chicken,
we even have lobster,
which one will he pick?
Comment down below which
one do you think he’ll pick?
You’re gotta get to pick,
but you only get to pick one.
If you saw Bosco in the
last video, we took him
to a pet store and we let him buy anything
he touched, along with his
friend Freddie Mercury.
Hit that thumbs up button, if you guys
get this video to 50,000 thumbs
up, we will do another video
with Basco until we find him a home.
Okay, I have something really cool
that we’re doing, so Hello Fresh
is sponsoring this video, and
you guys know that I love helping dogs
as much as possible, but I also love
helping the people that
are helping the dogs, and
at Marley’s Mutts is what
they do day in and day out.
I mean they literally
save thousands of dogs
every single year, so with Hello Fresh
sponsoring this video,
I thought, I have the
perfect idea, and what we’re gonna do
is were gonna surprise
Zach, the founder of
Marley’s Mutts with meals
for an entire year, for free.
So, Hello Fresh thank
you, I’m gonna tell you
more about them here
in a minute, but first
I thought we’d go in and
surprise Zach, so, come on!
Alright, so he, he’s in there and he
doesn’t know what’s about to happen.
You ready for your surprise?
– I guess. You’re scared and excited
all at the same time.
Oh boy!
– So we’re giving you an your family
Hello Fresh for an entire year.
– Really?
– Yeah.
– Are you serious?
– Yeah!
– Man, do we really get
this for a whole year?
– Whole year man.
– No way.
– You can pick the plan and.
– That’s outstanding.
– Here’s what I love about this,
it really makes me feel like a pro,
because it’s fresh
ingredients, it comes to
your door, it’s in an insulated box,
everything is premeasured,
and then it’s really
simple to follow, you just, you have
these recipe cards and check this out,
six easy steps, makes me look like a pro.
(chopping)
Okay, dinner is served, what do you think?
– It looks so good, it’s
just, it’s really nice
we work all day to help dogs then we
can come home, not have to worry about
grocery shopping, and whip
up something in 30 minutes.
It’s perfect and it’s super
healthy, so, I’m excited!
– Because it’s America’s
number one meal kit,
it takes under 30 minutes,
and if, we weren’t doing this,
who knows what I’d be eating,
just anything in front of me.
(glasses clinking)
– You deserve this, thank you.
– Yeah.

– Bosco is also really happy about this
but he’d like to, us to
get back to him picking
what he wants for dinner.
– Go back to savin’ lives.
– And all you gotta do,
is pick the one that
you want to eat, you ready?
– Go get them.
– [Woman] Come on Basco!
(sniffing)
– Oh, the steak, (laughs) no!
He almost got the steak, alright,
we’re gonna cook that up,
buddy, and it’s gonna be dinner
time, in no time, you’re a good boy!
This here, is Freddie Mercury,
and she has a very special
story, so what’s her story?
– She was found underneath
a car by someone and
brought her into a shelter,
and the shelter reached out
to Marley’s Mutts, and I
drove and got her, and fell
in love and adopted her.
– So, now you are her mom.
– Yeah.
– And she is healthy and happy.
We’re gonna have Freddie Mercury pick out
what she wants to eat, now with her meal
we’re gonna make it a
little bit different.
We need to blend up her meal right?
Cause she,
– Yeah.
– Her teeth need, she needs to be
able to eat with kinda
the, she’s got much.
(laughs)
She’s like, I know what
I want, alright, oh.
Chicken, okay, okay,
okay. you’re gonna check all of them now?
Maybe salmon?
– She is going for the chicken.
– Yes she’s definitely, she
definitely likes the chicken.
Dogs, need healthy fats in their foods, so
we’ve got coconut and
peanut butter, and some
of you might not think that lobster
and peanut butter go
together, but who knows?
We’ll let Freddie decide that.
So Freddie is gonna
choose, we’ve got the plate
right here, whether she likes coconut
or peanut butter better,
okay Freddie, go for it!
– Are you ready Freddie?
– I thought she was going for
the peanut butter, look at that.
I’m putting on the apron, cause that,
that essentially makes me the head chef,
the master chef, the boss.
(laughter)
– Please.
(laughs)
– That’s my wife back there cooking,
I honestly couldn’t do it without Kelly,
she, she is so awesome, uhm,
but we are definitely having
Angela take it back seat.
Cause, you need to
relax, like, we’re gonna,
we’re gonna take care of this.
We are also gonna feed all
of the dogs on the ranch,
because we want them to
all eat healthy and happy.
So we’re gonna take all
the veggies, chop’em up,
carbs chop’em up, proteins chop’em up,
mix it all together, and then it’ll be
some of the best dog
food that they’re eating,
it’s kinda like a gourmet dinner.
(upbeat music)
Freddie is definitely
interested in the, yeah
but he likes the chicken.
– You like the chicken?
– Yeah the chicken.
(upbeat music)
So we’d like to leave the skin on,
cause it’s really healthy
for dogs, and it just
makes it easier when you’re doing.
The whole reason we’re doing this is
one, because we want to
cook a dinner for Bosco,
but two, in the last
video millions of people
saw it and this guy
still hasn’t got a home.
I don’t know how, I
mean he’s a senior dog,
he’s a Cane Corso which
is an amazing breed,
people pay all kinds of
money for these dogs.
So I thought, you know what?
Let’s make another video,
let’s have fun with it,
let’s make him a great
meal, but here’s what
I need everyone to do, so
that we can get him adopted.
Hit that thumbs up, so that
we can show support, and
everybody can see this video
and Bosco can find a home.
Look at that face (laughs).
(gentle music)
She love’s it.
Think it’s time, I cut the fat off,
pretty cold to the touch, just wanna
make sure it’s not too hot for him,
and this is the moment
we’ve all been waiting for.
He picked this steak
out himself, ready, sit!
(groans)
Dogs love peanut butter
and dogs love steak,
so I thought I don’t know, why not
why not try and see if he
likes peanut butter steak.
(groans)
(laughs) What do think Basco?
You want peanut butter steak?
(laughs)
It’s a hit, you like that?
Okay, so we are plating the rest
of the dog food, or
bowling it I guess, and
in, in dog world, so I get some dope
bowls set up right here,
add a little garnish here,
put a little lobster, every dog, every dog
– [Voiceover] No!
– [Woman] Basco?
– Basco?
– I’ll grab a laugh, but I’ll be
– Okay (laughs), she’s gonna go grab
one of the dogs and
we’ll just let (laughs)
– Come on Cagney.
– Cagney is a professional uhm
floor dog eater, that’s the thing.
That’s a, here we go,
you ready?
– Yeah
– This is Marley’s Mutts
ranch, and how many acres?
– 23.
– 23 acres all for the
dogs and the animals.
Right now dogs, but
potentially more animals.
– Horses are coming next.
– Horses are coming next, so this is
Marley’s Mutts ranch and it is awesome
(barking)
– This is Jen, and this is Rosie.
– And they’re both available for adoption
at Marley’s Mutts right?
– Yeah
– Awesome!
– Okay, you guys ready for some food?
Let’s do it.
– Alright, let’s go.
– Good boy.
– You have it all over your face.
– Oh, good girl.
Okay we have some, we
have some full bellies.
The dogs are fed, Zach, the
director of Marley’s Mutts,
and he is taking care of,
thank you Hello Fresh for that.
Everyone again make sure
they go thank Hello Fresh,
go to HelloFresh.com, use
code Rocky 80, and you’ll
get $80 off, I just wanna
say it means so much to me
that you guys are so much
a part of this channel.
You believe, just as much as I do, that
every pet deserves a loving home, which
brings me to something I wanna talk to
you guys about, there is this Pit bull
that I’ve been wanting to help that just,
I don’t know, you know how
sometimes just an animal
just get to your heart,
well this Pit bull’s name
is Zeus, and he needs our help
and so, I’ll just show you.
Okay, I’m at San Gabriel
Valley Humane Society and I was
here last week and I just
fell in love with this dog.
The thing about this dog, is
that his temperament is just
so good, like when you go
past all the other kennels,
all the dogs are barking, he’s calm.
You know, I’ll stop talking
about it and I’ll show you,
let’s go check him out.
(barking)
Hi, that’s a good boy.
(barking)
Hi Buba
Okay, I’m gonna take take
him back into his play space.
This guy right here, is Zeus, hi bud, hi.
It’s the first time I’ve had him out, uhm,
you know it’s one of those things, hi,
oh (laughs) good body, oh,
hi, oh you’re a love bud huh
oh, does that feel good, oh yeah.
Let’s get this off of you,
oh good boy, oh good boy.
So, this is Zeus and he’s
been here for months, and
there’s just something
about him, where I just
fell in love with him and,
and , and you can tell
it is the first time I’ve
had him out of the kennel,
but you can just see,
he’s just such a good dog.
But he just passed over,
largely because he’s
a, he’s just a pit bull right?
Like the temperament on
this guy, I mean so far
you can just see it’s good, hi, hi.
But, just because, oh
(lauhgs) oh you’re a good boy.
But, largely just because he’s a Pit bull
he’s used to getting
passed over, you know?
He’s got, he’s got some allergies you can
tell right here on his stomach.
Hi, but, he just wants play, he just
wants to have fun, look at him.
(squeaking)
What’s that, what’s that, get it!
No, oh there it goes, there it goes.
No. (laughs)
Good boy, where’d it go?
Here it is, here it is!
Okay, so this is exactly why I do dogs
day out it’s because, because dogs
like Zeus don’t always
get the opportunity,
just because they’re stereotyped.
Pit bulls are, are one of the most
stereotyped dogs, that
they’re aggressive, and
that they’re bad dogs, look at this guy.
100% not the case, so I don’t know
this is where I need your guys’ help.
I mean, look at Zeus
should he be our next dog?
Should he be our next dog’s day out?
I wanna take Zeus to the Pet Store,
I guess the problem I run into with
taking Zeus to the Pet Store, is
other people could have
negative reactions, right?
They see a Pit bull walking in, and they
tense up and then that creates that energy
and so, my concern is if I take him
shopping, you know, will
it create a situation, or
will it change his temperament because of
how other people stereotype and react?
So, I don’t know should I take him
to the store and buy him
everything he touches?
Or (sighs) do you think we, we
shouldn’t do it, just because of
the way that people react to Pit bulls?
Let me know, put a comment down below, and
I’ll read all of those and
respond to as many as I can.
