A dog’s gotta look fresh, even on vacation.
The Clooney entourage – including Stacy Keibler – has decamped to the actor’s Lake Como villa in Italy for the summer. In true jet-setter fashion, Einstein has been enjoying the ritzy lifestyle, going boating on the lake and enjoying the mild Mediterranean weather.
On Friday, Einstein relaxed with a spa day at Comodog, a local pet grooming salon, where he got the works: a bath, a haircut and a massage.
This pampered life is a far cry from Einstein’s past as a shelter dog. When he was first rescued by an L.A.-area breed rescue, he was overweight with dry eye and an underactive thyroid, and had been living in a “filthy, crowded dog run.”
“He loves me. I can do no wrong. He follows me everywhere,” Clooney has said – and it’s no wonder!
