Miranda Lambert's Dogs Act as Birth Control

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!"
