Miranda Lambert and fiancé Blake Shelton are two parts of country music's hottest power couple, and while the rest of us are in a hurry to see a wedding and some babies, Lambert is holding steady – with her brood of seven dogs. "We're just taking care of them," she tells Health magazine. "They're all rescues, and all crazy looking."

Their names –Delta, Delilah, Cher, Jessi, Waylon, Virginia Bluebell and Black Betty – are all derived from the name of a song or a musical artist. Teacup Chihuahua Cher was once abandoned in a dumpster, and ended up being the country star's lucky charm! Soon after the singer adopted Cher, Lambert brought home Academy of Country Music awards!

"We have so much going on right now, we're gonna wait a while [before having kids]," Lambert says. "The dogs are really good birth control!"
