>>> last year as one of the world's smallest dogs. we'll try to move so you can even see her here.
>> she celebrated her first birthday, which was a major milestone for this three-pound pup. now she has a big job. she's a bit of a spokes-dog or ambassa-dog, and beyonce brought here by tony, and nice to have you here.
>> thank you.
>> it's a big deal she celebrated her first year.
>> she was just an ounce. we didn't think she would survive. we thought she was stillborn. so we were able to revive her and really just a miracle pup.
>> if we can, beyonce , can we turn you around really quickly? i want to talk about the cape, which i understand is very in this season.
>> very in.
>> with the tiny dogs, all the dazzle.
>> what is it about this dog that makes her sort of memorable, besides being so little? she has a personality as we witnessed.

>> so imagine what she can do in her second year. so we're asking everybody to come to our website, which is tinybeyonce.com, or like her on facebook, which is tiny beyonce , and we'll have a world's best contest. and we want people to tell us about their story, and really help those two save thousands of animals this year.
>> wow, a great story. nice to have you back and doing so well and helping so many other dogs. bet beth, thanks.
>> and she wants to shout out to patrick, met him at airport. very special to her.
>> all right. beyonce , making friends. look at her. we'll check in again with chuck todd in for david gregory . a look ahead on what is coming up on "meet the
