With more instagram followers than you and me, (155k and counting) – Toast is a social media sensation. Rescued from a puppy mill by by publicist Kate Sturino and comedian Josh Ostrovsky, a.k.a. The Fat Jew, Toast, a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, is famed for her signature lolling tongue (a result of losing her teeth due to poor dental care) and flowing honey locks.

“We were after a model for this campaign who could fit with our caramel-ly colour palette and also someone whose hair would work with our three wind machines hitting her from every angle to create a slightly seventies vibe. Toast ticked every one of those boxes,” said Walker.
