After tweeting a photo of his visit with officers from Boston's Special Operations (SWAT) team last week, Kevin Spacey followed up with just one more — a cryptic shot of an animal's tail. His almost-3 million followers were left guessing until two days later, when the 53-year-old revealed the newest member of his family, an adopted puppy named "Boston."
For those asking, Mini is great. 15 & still acting like a puppy. Be a week or so before she can meet Boston. I'm definitely in dog heaven!— Kevin Spacey (@KevinSpacey) May 7, 2013
“I’m not a doctor or first responder, but if people know me from movies, and walking into their work space or room brings a smile to their face — with the challenges these amazing citizens have in front of them — then that’s worth coming,” Spacey said. “The cops, nurses, doctors, hospital staff and patients that I have met over the past few days have given me the greatest feeling of pride in being an American and made me understand that we are all Boston.”
