What’s even more exciting than a famous lady with cornrows? A famous dude rocking dreadlocks. Here, Bradley Cooper shows off the hairstyle he’s sporting in his next movie. Oh and did I mention that he’s fallen in love on the set? His new squeeze is named Anastasia and she’s quite a bit younger—two-and-a-half years months old, to be exact. Relax, she’s that baby tiger he’s holding. “He just took her and she immediately fell in love with him,” says Anastasia’s trainer. “He has some kind of an animal connection inside of him that’s fairly obvious.” Growl.

Jennifer Aniston debuted her first tattoo this weekend, cursive script on the side of her foot spelling out “Norman.” Norman was Aniston’s dog who died in May at the age of 15. I think this is such a lovely tribute. I have long thought that eventually the only other ink I would get (besides the vaguely regrettable Chinese characters on my back) would be my dog Lucca’s name. I love her and want her with me always, just as Norman is now always walking with Jen. Okay, now I am tearing up. RIP Norman! Is a tattoo of a pet’s name something you would ever get?

You know what dogs really need? A bowl of dog food that makes its own gravy. A tennis ball to slobber on. Some shots to keep the worms away. But most of all, the one thing dogs need is constant love.
You know what dogs don’t need? Everything on this list of dumb luxury items for your pooch.
Yes, all of these ridiculous bowwow baubles are real. And yes, all of these canine luxuries will be used as fodder to incite the coming revolution. Dogs are not fashion accessories, and if you’re decking Fido out in frivolous finery, then you are dumb. Also: you’re either rich or bellybutton-deep in credit card debt. But mostly dumb.

Is it possible for a pet to have an identity crisis? Behold, a pair of dogs who think they are pandas, thanks to a little hairdye from their owners. Normally, I’d say this was cruel … but do you see how freaking cute they are?
After the jump, a dog who thinks he’s a tiger. Keep reading »
Over the weekend, Olivia Wilde tweeted this photo of herself cuddling with her dog, alongside the caption, “Ok I know I’m not supposed to tweet sexy photos (damn you Wiener (sic)!) but here is me and my (only!) boyfriend in bed.” Way to kill two birds with one stone, Olivia: (1) deflecting rumors that you’re dating Bradley Cooper and Justin Timberlake and (2) making us all say a collective, “awwwww.” [People] Keep reading »
Normally, I get sad when I hear about pets dying. But something about the news that Leona Helmsley’s beloved Maltese, Trouble, had kicked the doggy bucket made me happy. Maybe now they’ll be reunited in the afterlife?
Trouble, is of course, the dog that real estate magnate Leona Helmsley left a boatload of money to when she passed away in 2007. To be exact, Leona willed $12 million to Trouble, though a judge later reduced the amount to $2 million. Keep reading »
The self-shot venison dinner, the cowboy boots for the bridesmaids, the wearing of her mom’s wedding dress, the fishing honeymoon—yes, we have been thoroughly obsessed with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s sweet downhome wedding. But now a new detail has reeled me in even further. Apparently, Miranda and Blake were adamant about their dogs—chihuahua Cher, chihuahua-pug Delta, and terrier Delilah—being a big part of their nuptials. The three pups walked down the aisle with one of Miranda’s boot-clad bridesmaids. The doggies even got their own rhinestoned bandanas and collars for the occasion. “They were rock stars! Total rock stars, ” says Miranda’s publicist/wedding planner. “They were tiny little representatives, but they got a lot of laughs and attention. They were right in the big middle of everything … [Miranda] wanted a place where everybody would be comfortable, would have a great time, just feel at home and her dogs could be a part of it.”
This has me wondering—would you have your pets be a big part of your wedding? Keep reading »
On Monday, my parents put to sleep our 14-year-old Wheaton terrier, Timmy. This photo is exactly what Timmy looked like — i.e., sooo cute. My mom is really the one broken up by Timmy’s death; with all her kids moved out of the house, he became like another child (albeit one who never aged past being an impatient, demanding toddler!). I feel a twinge of sadness about Timmy’s death, because I hate to think of animals suffering in pain. But I know he was spoiled rotten during his 14 years in the Wakeman family and had a good life.

We’re still not 100 percent sure if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are a couple. But it sure looks like they’ve adopted a puppy together. The two supposedly got the little guy from a shelter in Baton Rouge, LA, and named him Bear. Nikki Reed was the one who let the news of their co-pet ownership slip saying, “I didn’t even know they got a dog.” When reporters pounced on the use of the word “they,” she said, “Oh no, it’s Rob’s dog.” But then Robert and Kristen took him to the vet together. And brought him to set in Vancouver. Now, Kristen is caring for the dog in New York while Robert is in London promoting “Water for Elephants.”
So my question is: is it a good idea for couples to adopt pets together before making things permanent? I’m thinking of a good friend who now gets her pooch every other week after she and her boyfriend broke up. [E! Online, Hollywood Life] Keep reading »
When Wendy Williams isn’t smoking Slim Jims (no seriously, that’s her preferred snack of choice) she’s dreaming up ways to humiliate both Hollywood celebrities and animals. Hence, Williams created couture doggie gowns emulating several Oscar attendees on a recent episode of “The Wendy Williams Show.” Like this Shar Pei named Knox, who sports a stunning orange gown, just like Jennifer Hudson’s Versace. To the dogs, we say. [People Pets] Keep reading »
