Celebrate National Pet Day With Classic Celebrities & Their Pets
April 11th marks National Pet Day and we are celebrating by digging up some photos of celebrities with their pets. Perhaps the most candid look you’ll get from a Hollywood star is when they’re caught alone with their pet. The bond between them is even more magical than with their many love partners; but then, they aren’t any different from the rest of us. Here are some of our faves!
Bing Crosby Loved Horses

Happy Trails to You
Cowboy star Roy Rogers blazed happy trails with his horse, Trigger, who actually had the run of the Rogers home. After the palomino died in 1965, Rogers had Trigger’s hide preserved and mounted on a plaster form.

The Famous Terrier
Audrey Hepburn poses with her Yorkshire terrier Mr. Famous. Hepburn was a huge dog lover and once said, “I walk my dogs to keep me fit. I talk to my dogs, which keeps me sane. I can’t think of anything that makes one happier than to cuddle and play and start the day with a warm puppy.”
Now go go hug your pets and incase you missed it, April 10 was National Hug Your dog day.
