These 20+ Celebs Make Great Fur Daddies, And They Will Get Your Tails Wagging!
Now is the time to convince the man in your life to get a dog (or more dogs). Count on these celebrity fur daddies to help you convince him.
Anyone who's ever owned a dog or just come across a particularly friendly or cuddly pooch can admit that their presence is a great gift. They're always happy to see you, love unconditionally, and they're fiercely loyal companions, which pretty much make them an indispensable part of one's life.
No one knows this better than these celebrities who have developed a special bond with their own fur babies and made them an integral part of their day-to-day living. For men who live lives as busy as theirs, they've all learned that the simple joy of being able to walk with their four-legged friends on a crisp Sunday afternoon is something they'll forever treasure, along with getting to curl up on the couch for a good movie with their loving pet, or being woken up in the morning with a routine lick to the face and an excited bark.
This was sent to me on Father's Day by my other half but I'm posting it now because I miss my doggies and it's my birthday and I can do what I want. Thanks for all the messages today, you're all incredible to me. I'll endeavour to try my best and keep trying to entertain you all, if you'll let me, for as long as they'll let me. Love xx
Best of all, aside from the obvious joys that a dog can bring, studies like that of Dr. Alan M. Beck, Director of the Center for the Human-Animal Bond at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine and the Butte Humane Society's Megan Worthylake, have shown that owning a dog and actively engaging with it can successfully reduce stress and instill the values of sympathy and empathy.
In other words, dogs make men—and women, too—generally happier, as well as more able to love, support, and care for those around them. Sensitivity to others' needs, attentiveness to others' feelings, responsibility, and tenderness become natural offshoots of caring for a pet—elements that are also essential in human friendships, and yes, even romantic relationships.
And so, without further ado, we present to you a list of famous fur dads who have been reaping the benefits of having a cute doggo by their side—whether in friendship, or in love!
anyone who has ever truly known me in the last 14 years has known this true prince. noah has been by my side through up and down. thick and thin. feast and famine. in loving him i learned to love myself more fully. he taught me compassion and patience and generosity... and oh how he made me laugh. he made friends wherever he went. his spirit was pure. his love was legend. i am a better person for having had him in my life. but tonight we had to let him go. surrounded by love he went to sleep. and may he forever rest in peace.
At 12:11 PM PST this beautiful girl took her last breath. Quietly cancer had filled this amazing girl of mine and there was nothing any of us could do. I’ve never known a more incredible animal. A soul that spoke 1,000 languages. Kid, I will miss you and anyone that ever got to know you will miss you. Countless flights, 100nights in the airstream, driving across the country, jumping in every lake- river- stream and ocean there was, just for a splash and to be happy. Thank you for loving me like I’ve never known. I know you’re here, your energy is here with us-I saw you playing with Neech this morning. I love you kiddo. Love, Dad
