It's a match made in Royals heaven: Katie Castan, the woman everyone knows as "the girl who won a puppy," finally has her dream dog.
Castan became Internet famous after TV cameras found her at the Oakland-Kansas City wild-card game. Castan was holding a sign that read, "If we win, he's buying me a puppy!" with an arrow pointing to her boyfriend. After the Royals won dramatically in extra innings, everyone wanted to know if Castan's boyfriend would, in fact, live up to his promise.
It turns out she's dating a good one -- or, at least, she's dating a guy who won't defy a nation that wants to see a puppy in his girlfriend's arms. Castan had previously said they would likely adopt a dog from KC Pet Project, and that they would wait until after the season to get their dog.
But Castan was then approached by a family looking for a new home for their 4-year-old Corgi, and they called Castan to see if she was interested.
This is the end result:

"Since a corgi is the dog of my dreams, we went to meet her and I immediately fell in love," Castan told The Kansas City Star, which first reported the story.
And they lived happily ever after.
