Lu Parker and dog at Casa Villaraigosa

luparkerdogchon1.jpgluparkerdogchon2.jpgOne thing we've all learned about KTLA reporter Lu Parker is that she loves animals, and especially her rescue dog Monkey. They'll be featured in an upcoming photo spread in Modern Dog Magazine, shot in the backyard of her boyfriend's home. That would be Getty House, the official residence of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. More photos, and bigger, at Parker's blog.
