Now there's a first world problem we'd love to share with Julianne Hough. The actress posted an Instagram photo Thursday of why she was having a difficult time preparing for her next film role.
"It's hard to learn lines when you're distracted with kisses," Hough wrote, sharing photos of her being licked by Cavalier King Charles spaniels Harley and Lexi.
Lea Michele has a new "little love" in her life.
As the Glee actress slowly moves on from the pain of losing boyfriend and costar Cory Monteith in July, she has adopted an 8-year-old pooch named Pearl.
"Today I would like to introduce you to Pearl. She's 8 years old and is my new little love … Welcome Pearl!" she wrote Tuesday, sharing a photo of the caramel-colored pooch, who looks like a Pomeranian.
Here's proof that babies bring people together!
Former couple Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, who parted ways earlier this year after several years of dating, were together Tuesday in Atlanta for the birth of his dog Nietzsche's puppies.
And the experience was definitely an eye-opener for the Vampire Diaries costars, even if they no longer have eyes for each other.
"Live from the whelping box In Atlanta! Panting, pushing, contractions – Wow. Make no mistake about it – Ladies rule," he wrote on Tuesday alongside an Instagram photo of himself cuddling the dog, who welcomed eight little ones. "Women of every species blow my mind … Incredible what mamas go through! Love to you mamas – all over the world. Jeez."
Seth Meyers's dog Frisbee was involved in his engagement to lawyer Alexi Ashe, so it was a given that the tiny pooch would play a big part in their September nuptials, too.
"The dog came down the aisle," Meyers, 39, told PEOPLE at Gotham magazine's "Men's Issue" release party in New York on Monday. "[Frisbee] had a leash that had a bowtie on the end of it. Even though she is a lady dog, we thought a bowtie would be good."
But the bowtie wasn't enough for Frisbee, who found another way to draw attention to herself on the big day (though we think she was just giving the couple her blessing).
For Simon Cowell, it's the more, the furrier!
The 53-year-old introduced two new puppies he recently adopted Thursday over Twitter, asking fans, "Any suggestions for names?"
Cowell, who is expecting his first child with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, has spoken out in the past about the importance of adopting a dog rather than buying it from a pet shop. Last month, he sent out a message that he was looking to expand his family.
The Somerhalder family is getting even bigger!
A little more than a month since The Vampire Diaries's Ian Somerhalder brought home rescue dog Nietzsche, he took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that his "new girl" is pregnant and due any day now.
"Preparing for the launch of a whole part of life – being a GRANDFATHER," he wrote. "I've got my hand on a belly with 8 little ones about to explode out into the world."
Miranda Lambert has a (doggy) bone to pick with her husband Blake Shelton.
The country singer caught her new puppy, Bellamy, chewing on a pair of her sneakers – and she has a suspicion that the shoes didn't find their way into his mouth all on their own.
"Bellamy … did @blakeshelton [Blake Shelton] give you my shoe? I know he hates these," she Tweeted, sharing a photo of the adorable pup munching on a shoelace.
It seems like the fur coats Harley and Lexi have been sporting year-round are starting to come in handy.
Julianne Hough shared over Instagram on Thursday that she's finally ready to kick off the fall season – and of course she's doing it with her beloved Cavalier King Charles spaniels.
"Hanging with my babies on the first day it actually feels like fall!" she captioned a photo of herself dressed for the cooler climate while holding tight to her doggy duo. "I get to finally wear sweaters and drink pumpkin spiced lattes."
For the past week, all eyes have been on Miley Cyrus as she faces the spotlight in the wake of her split from ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth. Inquisitive fans are searching for clues as to what went wrong – especially in the star's music.
But in a new interview with Rolling Stone, the singer admits that a moment in her controversial video for "Wrecking Ball," in which she appears completely nude, came about not because of her relationship with Hemsworth, but because of her pets.
"That was real," Cyrus tells the interviewer of the close-up in which she sheds a tear. "My dog just passed away."
It wasn't quite like the first time he laid eyes on singers Austin Jenckes or Holly Henry on The Voice, but another face-to-face meeting got Blake Shelton fired up Wednesday: his official introduction to Hoda Kotb's dog, also named Blake Shelton, on Today.
"I love him. I've seen so many pictures of him that I feel like I know him," the country singer told Kotb, as he snuggled with the pooch in a chair beside her.
Kotb adopted the black and white cockapoo in March after a segment on rescue dogs. A few days later, Shelton called into the morning show and convinced Kotb – who has been open about having a celebrity crush on the singer – to name the dog after him.
