Actress Olivia Munn is no stranger to paparazzi and tabloid rumors. But one of the few times she’s spoken about gossip was when her dog Chance was accused of peeing on an airport greetingsman. What did Munn say about him after a retail outlet reported that they caught him being a little naughty?

Olivia Munn saved her dogs
According to People, Munn adopted her two dogs – Chance and Frankie. The puppy in question here, Chance, is a thoroughbred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who was first rescued from a puppy mill.
Notably, Munn is a laudable advocate of pet adoption as opposed to buying from stores or breeders. “There are so many dogs and cats and animals waiting to be forever homes,” she told People. “They just sit there and wait and need someone to love them and bring them home.”
Pet owners know that whether their fluffy companions come from a shop or a shelter, they can sometimes have difficult habits that could get a little embarrassing. And it appeared that Munn had this problem when distant images surfaced on TMZ since then that appeared to show her dog stretching his leg on an airport greetings card.
Did chance peed at the airport greetings?
According to Munn, Chance did not pee on the greeter, but simply asked for a scratch in a very specific place. And the story troubled her so much that she had to tell the world it wasn’t true. She found that this was the only time she’d talked about rumors other than when she was accused of dating a friend’s ex – and according to People, that would be Chris Pratt shortly after he broke up with Anna Faris.
“I felt like this was the only time I could think about other than say, ‘I’m not dating my boyfriend’s ex,’ when I had to tell the world, ‘My dog didn’t try to piss on someone. No no. He only asked for a scratch, ”explained Munn. “I felt so defensive.”
So Munn said she talked to her dog and reminded him that he was in the spotlight. She also joked that she told him to hold back by staying away from social media and turning off comments.
Olivia Munn prioritizes pet health
In a recent interview with People, the now pregnant Munn revealed that Frankie – not Chance – had “tagged” every day in her house out of fear.
“Pet mental health is so important,” she noted of the problem. In particular, she has partnered with PetCo to promote a free pet health seminar that is no longer available. According to reports, animal parents should be trained to look for signs of anxiety and teach relaxation techniques.
Munn appeared concerned about the effects of the pandemic on pets. “It was so great to see all of our country promoting truly endangered animals during the pandemic,” she said. “And we need to remember that mental health is so important to our animals.”
How did your pets react to your pregnancy? “My dogs are going to trample my entire stomach,” she said before adding, “I doubt they have any idea what’s going to happen.”
Munn is slated to give birth to John Mulaney’s baby this year, and fans will no doubt be curious to see how Chance and Frankie are reacting to the latest addition. Hopefully there is no leg lifting.
