In addition to the obvious perks — the best kibble money can buy, designer collars, a jet-setting lifestyle — there are downsides to being the dog of a famous celebrity. Namely that you can’t do normal dog stuff, like mounting another pooch at the park, without a paparazzo shooting an entire roll of film of the incident for hacks like me to post. Sorry, Finn — them’s the breaks. [Photo: Splash News]
Hey, that handsome dog looks awfully familiar… Either we’ve got a documented case of dognapping on our hands or Justin Long has all but confirmed his relationship with Amanda Seyfried by walking her beloved mutt Finn in NYC’s Union Square. I really like this new celebrity couple, don’t you? I hate to say it, but it seems like Amanda has dated a sea of Hollywood pricks, like Dominic Cooper, who cheated on her with Lindsay Lohan, and Ryan Philippe, whose dick history goes without saying. A nice Connecticut guy like Justin might be just what she needs! [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
Look, I’ve said some unkind things about Jessica Biel in the past, mostly within the spectrum of girl, you bland as hell. JT’s gal has always just struck me as being so milquetoast, despite her own testaments to the contrary (and the fact that she always looks fantastic, which can typically get almost anyone a solid seal of approval in my book). But, like, now that I’ve seen her walking her dogs on the West Side Highway, smiling at the paparazzi and looking totally approachable and at ease despite the fact that she’s just trying to walk her dogs in gym clothes and there’s some cameraman lunging at her (or, more likely, multiple) … Jessica and I are cool.

She doesn’t have a baby on the way like sister Kim, but Khloe Kardashian has her own new cuddly accessory — a boxer puppy gifted to her by husband Lamar Odom! The couple named the adorable nugget Bernard Hopkins after the legendary prize fighter, but will call him “B.” Not to be morbid, but this is the Kardashians we’re talking about, so my fingers are crossed that Bernard has a longer life than Kim’s kitten Mercy.

There is much to like about Katharine McPhee’s outfit: her voluminous, hooded coat, her printed scarf, that little braid poking out on the side. But let’s face it, the true star of this photo is her chillaxing little Chihuahua pup Nena. That belly and those hardly-give-a-fuck limp paws are killing me. Give that girl a treat.

Bea, the adorable 2-year-old Golden Retriever that belonged to model Maggie Rizer and inspired her blog, “Bea Makes Three,” died during a cross-country flight on United Airlines two weeks ago. According to an autopsy, her death was caused by heatstroke. From Rizer’s blog:
Beatrice had a perfect health record. She received a full examination and a health certificate four days before the flight, as is required by the Pet Safe program. This program is United’s branded on-board pet safety program. In addition to Pet Safe’s stringent requirements, we took every extra precaution we could think of. Read more…
My dog Lucca is my best friend, the apple of my eye, the wind beneath my wings. But I’m a dog person in general and like to keep myself up to date on the furry friends of Hollywood’s best and brightest. Sometimes a celeb’s dog is actually their better half. I’m not saying that’s the case with all 15 of my favorite celeb dogs, but these pooches certainly win their owners points in my book.
