Henrico’s ‘Chilly Dog’ to be on TV Monday night

Chilly, a dog who resides with his owners in Henrico, will be featured on an episode of Cake Boss on Monday, Feb. 4.

Known to many locals as "Chilly the Tie Dyed Poodle from Carytown," Chilly was married in the world's most expensive pet wedding this summer, which will be featured on the episode.

He is now a therapy dog and visits children, retirement homes, and anyone who might be feeling down (by request). He recently visited Newtown, Conn. Chilly also helps crusade for Helping Hands, an organization with the mission of providing affordable pet surgery and preventing unnecessary euthanasias.
