“American Idol” contestant Paige Miles says there’s one silver lining to being booted from the popular show – she gets to go home to Houston and see her dogs.
“I can’t wait to see my dogs,” Miles told People Pets. “I haven’t seen my dogs in months and they go crazy. I was like, ‘Mom, can I Skype the dogs?’ She was like, ‘well, if I can get them to stand still!’”
Miles, who teaches preschool in Houston, spends weekends volunteering at pet adoption events.
“I love dogs and I’m very involved in animal rescue,” Miles says. “Laila is a Newfoundland mix and a rescue I got two years ago. I have another Shih Tzu mix, or something-mix, we don’t really know – that I got a year ago, plus I have tons of [foster] dogs in and out so I always have a lot of dogs at home.”
As for her musical career, Miles says she’s planning a move to Los Angeles with fellow “Idol” alum Lacey Brown, so stay tuned.
