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]
I would like to speak to the person who approved this photo of Stevie Nicks and her Chinese Crested Yorkshire Terrier mix, Sulamith Wülfing, for the cover of QWeekend. It’s just seems indecent to show so much dog crotch on the cover of a newspaper. And that vagina-esque feather boa certainly isn’t helping. [Gawker]
Don’t mind me, just bawling at my desk because Sarah Silverman’s 19-year-old dog Duck died and she wrote the loveliest obituary for him. It will rip your heart open and make you want to run home and squeeze the bejeezus out of your pet, which is what I am going to do right now. Luuuuuuuucccccca! Mommy loves you so much!!!! Sob. RIP Duck Silverman. You were clearly a great dog and very, very loved. [Who Say]
“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]
