Ross Mathews, better known as Ross the Intern, has delightfully charmed audiences as a correspondent for NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for many years. More recently he’s made several guest appearances on Chelsea Handler’s E! evening show; Chelsea Lately. Even though Mathews has hung out with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, and covered events from The Academy Awards to the Olympics, he’s most contented when in the company of Louise “Wee-Wee” Mathews, his Maltese-Poodle mix.
According to Mathews, Louise (his rescue from Dog’s Life Rescue) is, “one in a million, because I have never met anything like her in my entire life. She’s pure, concentrated joy, just add water. Every morning when I get ready for work, I fold my pajamas and put them on the bed, and she sleeps on them the entire time I’m gone. I mean, we’re crazy in love. Louise sort of reflects my personality – a real zest for life. Happy, kissy – kissy, sweet. And no longer a weight problem!”
Mathews commented on how they both slimmed down since feasting on a healthier diet, “All her food is organic, and she doesn’t eat any junk, but now that I eat healthier, I’ll give her some carrots or cut off a piece of apple for her. So she always gets some of my fruit or vegetables, or even a little chicken. Back in the day it used to be – ‘Want some Cheetos?’ – but we’re both heart-healthy now.”
Mathews is a strong advocate for Linda Blair’s World Heart Foundation. World Heart is a non-profit organization that rescues abandoned and abused animals from the streets. The organization gives these animals a second chance at life through rehabilitation. He also attends events for other animal organizations such as Dog’s Life Rescue and Nuts for Mutts.
