Originally named Stinky, Marnie had quite the challenging the past, according to her website. She was found by Animal Control, with matted hair and smelling to high heaven. Marnie needed to have 14 decaying teeth removed, which eliminated the ungodly stench, and earlier suspicions that she was blind in her left eye ended up being wrong. Yay!
Marnie might very well be famous for her adorable head tilt, which is a result of a brief illness she had called Vestibular Syndrome. Rest assured she's perfectly happy, and the head tilt just adds to her fabulous style.
As for the tongue? It's just long AF. Perfection. Honestly, have you ever seen a cuter creature? (No.)
