Coyne made sure to point out that though they used the band's Web space to find the doggies homes, they made sure to place them with suitable families. "The people who go to the Flaming Lips Web site and are interested in getting animals are wonderful people. We don't want people just coming to get a puppy because it's associated with the Flaming Lips, and we've been really lucky," he explains. "Everybody comes and they're serious about taking care of it, knowing that it's going to be a big dog, it's not gonna stay a puppy forever, so I think we've done good."
In addition to finding them homes, Coyne and his wife, Michelle Martin-Coyne, who accompanied him to the Who event, where the Lips performed a 'Tommy' medley, noted the puppies will be taken care of properly. "People don't know this: Oklahoma City has got a horrible overpopulated stray dog, stray cat population," Coyne said.
"Feral animals are really a problem, and these people that have taken these puppies have all agreed to have them spayed and neutered," Martin-Coyne added. "We're gonna see that that happens."
