These Photos Of Celebs With Their Beautiful Fur Babies Will Melt Your Heart Because, Duh

Pets bring so much joy into a home. A lot of times parents are quick to tell you that they are not feeding or walking the newest family member. They always give in and handle the day-to-day operations of loving the animal. In the last decade alone, Latinos have accounted for more than half of the growth in animal companionship. It’s because we have bleeding hearts, though none as big as Demi Lovato’s. ????

Find out which fluffer your favorite celebrity goes to bat for.

Mariah Carey está aqui por los perros, specifically her Jack Russel, Jackson P. Muttley, who she goes literally nowhere without. Honestly, could you live with yourself if you had to leave that love nugget behind?

Bella Thorne and Tampon

That’s right. Beall Thorne decided to name her Tampon and it isn’t the weirdest name given to a pet, tbh. Someone chastised her for the name on Instagram and she responded, “Naming her tampon? When did tampon become a bad thing? When did someone buy a tampon and it didn’t come in handy?” Hard to argue that point.

Demi Lovato and Hairy-ette

Demi Lovato brought home a hairless Sphynx kitten awhile back, thinking that she wouldn’t be allergic to him because he has no hair. Wrong. Fans saw her face blow up before their very eyes and she had to return him. Everyone was devastated by the result.

But that hasn’t stopped her from loving on hypoallergenic dogs.

Lovato is very obsessed with her dogs, who are named Batman and Ella. They not only have their own children’s book about their story, but Batman even has his own Instagram account, @demisbatman.

She’s confessed that it’s her favorite breed, but more than anything, she loves watching her kids grow up with such lovebugs.

George Lopez and Owen

Lopez says that the dog just kind of found him, but that the two were meant for each other. He adopted lil Owen when he was just one year old, and they’ve been literally sharing pudding on the couch ever since.

Gina Rodriguez and Casper

Rodriguez rescued Casper and the two have been spotted canoodling and snuggling in bed with her boyfriend ever since. We all need a Casper. Just look at how happy that little pup has made Rodriguez. We all deserve that kind of love. #AdoptDontShop

Gisele has used her fame and wealth to give homes to countless dogs. They all live in her house. Rumor has it that her husband Tom Brady brought home a beagle named Scooby Doo without even giving her a heads up, so she returned the favor.

His name is Ruffles and he clearly needs to be carried at all times. Look at him hugging her arm. How adorable is that little face.

Eva Longoria and Jinxy

We could write a whole biography on Longoria’s obsesión with Jinxy, who has graced the covers of magazines with her. She dresses him in Halloween outfits, and of course he wears a bowtie on special occasions.

Danny Trejo is another major activist for shelter animals. He’s posed for PSA’s that promote adoption over buying animals, and we love his soft spot for animals under a seemingly machismo exterior.

Hottie Mark Consuelos is a fan of the small, very fluffy types. Him and wife Kelly Ripa are often spotted walking their pupparoo around Los Angeles.

She brought home two bunnies a few years back and they’ve grown into much bigger guys, and very close siblings. You kind of can’t get just one bun, because two buns are better than one.

Somehow, French Bulldogs just make sense for Mario Lopez. Like, you wouldn’t have guessed they’d be his breed of choice, but it just makes sense. Perhaps it’s because they too are small, muscular and adorable.

Naya Rivera and her royal pups

Naya Rivera clearly prefers the King Charles Spaniels, and I totally get it. Look at those Lady & The Tramp style ears. I’ll brush your ears every day, Rivera perros.

Saldana is another fan of rescuing and introduced the world to Mugsy when she first adopted him back in 2012. His look hasn’t changed much. White Bat in Headlights, don’t you think?

The Man Who Charmed The World With His Dog Chiquilina Says She’s The Greatest Love Of His Life

Thanks to TikTok, the world is getting to know a bit more about Guillermo Hernandez and his pup, Chiquilina. The pair went viral on TikTok (and across the Internet) for their video outside a California carniceria: the terrier happily wagging its tail as it rides a rocking, coin-operated horse while its owner does a little dance to the backdrop of The Ronettes song, “Be My Baby.”

The video became an instant hit as it made its rounds around the Internet, racking up more than 8 million views and 2 million likes on TikTok alone. Now, Hernandez – the proud pup papi – is speaking out about his new found viral fame and giving us faith in humanity once again.

Guillermo Hernandez and his perrita, Chiquilina, have captured the heart of the Internet in new viral video.

A viral video has caused a sensation on TikTok and other social networks for showing a dog wagging her tail happily while riding a mechanical horse, while her owner watches on proudly.

The video was captured by TikTok user @frenchielife805, who saw the pair by chance when she was waiting in her car for the traffic light to change at a nearby intersection. “I go crazy for animals. I have two dogs that are like my babies,” confessed this mother and proud owner of two French bulldog dogs in an interview with the Santa Maria Times.

The video is truly what we all needed right now: pure amor.

Within hours of being posted online, the video blew up and the world came to know Guillermo Hernandez, 53, and Chiquilina, his 10-year-old Terrier cross dog that he has had since she was a puppy.

“I love her more than my life,” Hernandez told the Santa Maria Times, an emotion that many pet owners can identify with. “She is my doctor, my baby, my therapist,” he added.

A native of Michoacán, Mexico, Hernandez moved to the city of Santa Maria in 1985 and worked throughout the state of California in the construction industry for a long time until he was declared disabled by law and unable to continue performing such intense work. Now, he spends his days biking with his Chiquilina up on his head or hanging out with his friends outside the spot where they went viral.

The pair are well known in the area for their loving relationship.

Consuelo Valle, the owner of the shop where they were filmed, told the Santa Maria Times that “he loves his dog very much, he considers her as his family. She is always riding on his shoulder or being carried in his basket. He buys her popsicles, treats and ice cream. He talks to her and asks her what flavor of lollipop she wants.”

Both the TikToker who filmed their loving relationship and Valle said that the man’s incredible relationship with his dog raised their spirits and encouraged them to take better care of their own pets.

“The way in which he is happy with his dog, teaches us that we can all be happy in many different ways,” remarked Valle. While the TikToker @frenchielife805 said although has no idea why their video became went so viral, what she is sure of is that so far in the pandemic, people are always looking for any reason to smile.

Mario Lopez Publicly Supports Former Co-Star Dustin Diamond aka ‘Screech’ After ‘Heartbreaking’ Stage 4 Cancer Diagnosis

Mario Lopez is living proof that true old friends stick by your side–no matter what. The “Access Hollywood” co-host took to Twitter recently to voice his support of his friend and former “Saved By the Bell” co-star, Dustin Diamond after the tragic revelation of Diamond’s stage four cancer diagnosis.

“I connected with Dustin earlier this evening and although the news of his diagnosis is heartbreaking, we remain positive that he’ll overcome this,” wrote Lopez. “Praying for him & his family and for a speedy recovery.
God Bless”.

On Thursday, Dustin Diamond aka “Screech” was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer after he was admitted to the hospital for intense pain.

In addition to feeling pain all over his body, Diamond also allegedly discovered a “huge lump” on his throat. Although his representatives describe his condition as serious, he is reportedly undergoing chemotherapy and his friends and loved ones are hopeful for his recovery.

“We can confirm that Dustin does have cancer,” a representative for Diamond revealed to People. “It’s very serious, though we are still waiting for more details, which we will have shortly. He’s in a lot of pain.”

To Entertainment Weekly, his reps said: “By next week, we’ll have a much better understanding of the severity of his condition and what treatments he will need so that he’s comfortable.” They also added that Diamond was “fading in and out” when he was first admitted to the hospital.

Dustin Diamond and Mario Lopez have long had a complicated relationship.

In Mario Lopez’s 2014 book “Just Between Us,” he revealed that Diamond wasn’t exactly beloved by the rest of the cast. “Not everyone got along with Screech AKA Dustin Diamond. I did, but maybe I was the exception,” he wrote. “He was one of those dorky kids who thought it was hilarious to take Polaroids of his genitals and leave the photos all over the set.”

In Dustin Diamond’s 2009 tell-all book “Behind the Bell”, he painted a picture of negative experience on set. The youngest of the cast, Diamond often felt ostracized by the “in crowd” Bay City High’s hotter, older cast members.

After “Saved By the Bell” stopped filming, Dustin Diamond had a hard time getting back on his feet.

Diamond seemed to be embroiled in endless controversy, from reality show fights, to sex tapes, to bar-room brawls. In 2015, he was sentenced to four months in jail after stabbing a man during a bar fight.

He sat down for an interview with Mario Lopez for Extra in 2016 to set the record straight about his alleged bad body behavior. At that point, Diamond told Lopez that he had started a new chapter in his life.

“I want to put the tom foolery and malarkey behind me, you know? It’s time for that clean slate. Time for the change.”

Well, we hope Diamond gets better so he can fulfill his dreams of having a new lease on life. We’re glad his old friends are standing by him.
