“There is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals… I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat,”
– This would be Karl Lagerfeld, expressing his desire to be joined in holy matrimony to his notoriously pampered cat Choupette. Now if only the law would support their love! [Independent UK]
Katrina Bowden tied the knot with musician Ben Jorgensen over the weekend, but that didn’t exempt her from getting right back on dog-walking duty in NYC yesterday. Granted, Katrina looks none too pleased to be carrying her spoiled pup around in her arms, but to the rest of us … that shit is cute. Look at that fluffball! So adorable. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
I know how it is for big celebrities. You get a taste of fame and you forget about all the little people and monkeys that helped get you to the top. Justin Bieber – adult-sized footie pajama-wearer and Anne Frank historian –– has 24 hours to reclaim his pet monkey OG Malley from Munich, Germany. If he doesn’t come and get the adorable pint-sized Capuchin, the little dude will be sent to live at a zoo in Germany. The pop star/hair gel fanatic had previously been criticized for taking the monkey away from its mother when it was too young. Earlier this month, Bieber signed over the monkey to German authorities, but he still has 24 hours to change his mind.
Biebz, whatever happened to no monkey left behind?
Seriously though, treating animals like disposable props is completely despicable. And this isn’t the first time Bieber’s done this. He had a pet hamster that he callously gave away to a fan. The hamster later died. Somebody stop letting this kid buy pets, please. [Buzzfeed]
Bella Thorne is still technically a child, so I will refrain from saying snarky things about the oversized bow in her hair or the housecoat-like sweater she’s wearing. Instead, I’ll just say that her dog looks amazing in his pup-propriate Hawaiian shirt. Somebody give that dog a bone, will you? [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
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.

Ignore that rich-looking woman holding him — that’s Lisa Vanderpump, natch — we’re more concerned with what Mr. Jiggy, resident fancy pants dog of “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills,” is wearing. It’s an animal-print pea coat. I wonder if Jiggy is offended that he’s been put in a pattern from the cat family. I mean, is Jiggy offended by anything? Because maybe he should be. Then again, maybe I’m just jealous that Jiggy has nicer clothes than me. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
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.
Two bones to pick this morning! 1) Excuse me, Fame/Flynet, but George is not Eva Mendes’ dog, as you have inaccurately labeled him. He is Ryan Gosling’s dog. Eva Mendes is a temporary dog walker. 2) And excuse me, Celebitchy, but Eva Mendes, dog walker, is not “hiding a baby bump.” Watch. Your. Mouth. Please.
