7. The Obamas and Bo
Like a number of former First Families, the Obamas have a furry friend of their own romping around the White House with them: Bo, a Portuguese Water Dog. Fun fact: Malia has allergies, so Bo is a hypoallergenic pup. He also appears to like football.
8. Jake Gyllenhaal, Atticus, and Boo Radley
Jake Gyllenhaal has two dogs: A German Shepherd named Atticus and a Puggle (part beagle, part pug) named Boo Radley—both named after To Kill a Mockingbird characters, which happens to be Jake’s favorite book. We just like saying the word “Puggle.” Puggle!
9. Elizabeth Hurley and Ping Pong
Rumor has it that Elizabeth Hurley’s Blue Fronted Amazong parot Ping Pong has quite a foul mouth. Wonder where she picked up her questionable vocabulary…
10. William, Kate, and Their New Puppy
Alas, we don’t know the name of this adorable pup yet, but the little cocker spaniel had a blast romping around the beach with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last week. There’s nothing quite like the enthusiasm of a brand new puppy!
11. Charlize Theron, Blue, and Berkely
Charlize Theron is a huge dog person. She used to have eight of them, but sadly, they all died over the course of the last couple of years. She went about a year unhappily pooch-free, it looks like she’s starting up the pup collection again: She adopted two dogs, a pit bull named Blue and a Border-terrier named Berkeley. Woman’s best friend, indeed!
12. Elle Macpherson and Her Bearded Dragon
That’s right: Supermodel Elle Macpherson has a pet bearded dragon. Win.
