Josh Donaldson’s girlfriend Jillian Rose is a sweet girl, there to support and encourage her boyfriend, but she’s not the sweetest lady in the house. That honorable title would go to little Rose– the King Charles Spaniel that requires daily belly-rubbing. Based on the video just released by MLB.com, this dog is a star. She was featured prominently in the brief portrait about Josh and his life in the big city.
Josh’s girlfriend Jillian was somewhat shocked when she first encountered Josh’s first introduction of the “Donaldson”– a mohawk with a long rat tail in the back. She told the story last year. Apparently he had tried to cut the mohawk himself, started screwing it up, and then got a celebrity hairstylist to finish off the job. She said she talked to the hairstylist’s girlfriend and joked about it. The hairstyle itself was nothing too outlandish, but the rat tail is a little gross (at least to some). I wonder if it would be possible for the “Donaldson” to go mainstream?
Things are poppin’ pretty nicely for Josh and his girlfriend Jillian as it relates to their living situation in ‘Frisco. Having had a cursory peek at their apartment in the MLB video, it appears pretty nice. If you consider San Francisco prices, it looks like they are poised to enter the uptown club reserved for the likes of, well, rich athletes and movie stars. For now, though, Donaldson’s only pulling down half a mill a year, but give him time. After his contract opens up, that is very much bound to change, and we could even see an upgrade in the dog department. Donaldson and Jillian made the decision to get a little dog because of the size of their apartment, but when the millions start pouring in, we might be expecting a full-fledged Bernese Mountain Dog for the lovely couple.
