Hugh Jackman takes care of his own, so when the actor flew to Toronto earlier this month to perform in a one-man show, he brought along his kids and the family’s 10-month-old French bulldog Dali – in first class!
The lucky pup will soon rack up even more frequent-flier miles: After Hugh Jackman in Concert ends its run this weekend, the family, with Dali in tow, will jet off for their summer vacation.
“He’s coming to Europe with us,” Jackman’s wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, told PEOPLE at the July 13 Cinema Society screening of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. “He’s part of the family.”
Dali may have a French pedigree, but he also has a Spanish spirit, thanks to his name. “My son, [Oscar], is an artist, and his favorite artist is Salvador Dalé, Furness said. Because of the way [the dog’s] mouth curls, he looks like Salvador Dalé with a mustache.”
She added, “He’s got a face only a mother could love.”
