There’s a new poster out for the eagerly-awaited Star Trek: Picard show! And it looks like Patrick Stewart has introduced an ADORABLE element from his own life into the continuing voyages of Jean-Luc Picard.
A pitbull! (Or “pittie!” if you prefer, and you should.)
Back in 2017–as part of the continuing saga of Living His Best Life–Patrick Stewart partnered up with Wags and Walks in Los Angeles, an organization that nurtures and fosters rescue shelter dogs. He very quickly fell in love with a pitbull there by the name of Ginger.
Ginger was subsequently adopted in later 2017.
Fostering Ginger left a lingering joy in my life that I believe is here to stay. Happy to share that she has found a forever home, and in her honour, I'm raising money for Wags and Walks for #GivingTuesday.

But it was too late. Stewart was in love and along came Emma, the pittie!
Meet Emma, our new foster girl from the beautiful folks at @WagsandWalks She’s terribly sweet, and so so good. Sensitive, intelligent, and gentle…all wrapped up in 38 pounds of pocket pittie-mix love. #fosteringsaveslives #adoptdontshop #pitbullsarelove #pitbullsarefamily pic.twitter.com/n03YbSkSvG

Star Trek Picard began filming in May 2019, just one month after Stewart began fostering Emma.
Okay that’s probably not Emma. The ears seem different. But still…looks like Stewart’s love of pitbulls made it into the life of Jean-Luc Picard! OUR HEARTS. MAY NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE THIS.
