A Doge Is Born: Charlie & Other Celebrity Pets Ready For Their Close-Up!

Written by Kyla Killackey. Published: October 23 2018


A Star Is Born certainly lived up to its name -- it delivered a new star into our world, one who shines so brightly and is so good that it’s hard to believe we are just now learning his name. I have seen this movie 5 times, and at first, I was embarrassed to admit that, but you know what, this is the world I want to live in and so I am living in it. The point of this was to tell you that the more I watch this movie, the more I realize there is one performance that goes above and beyond, one performance that surprises me, makes me laugh, makes me cry, and makes me fall in love every time I see it. And that performance is by a dog.


Meet Charlie, he is Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s dog in A Star Is Born and he also happens to be Bradley Cooper’s dog IN REAL LIFE!!!!!!!

He has long luscious locks, always comes when called, and happens to be a powerful actor. At one point, Bradley Cooper picks Charlie up and cradles him like a baby and it is the only thing I want to see for the rest of my life.


So in honor of our new star Charlie, here’s a list of all the other doges we’d like to see on screen!


Our forever First Dogs: Sonny and Bo Obama. They have lots of experience in front of the camera from their time at the White House and seem to love the attention.


Chrissy Tiegen’s newest pup: Pepper. The Legend household is known for their love of bulldogs, but Pepper almost broke the internet with her Instagram debut. The world clearly wants more.

Liam Hemsworth’s lovely lady: Dora. Liam rescued Dora and just look how big and sweet she is trying to squeeze in with all their other pups. And she’s already a style icon -- just look at how well she pulls off that bandana!!!!


Finn!!!! Finn is Amanda Seyfried’s trusty companion and their relationship is what I model all my human relationships after. He is clearly talented and passionate about charity work and ready to be a leading dog.


And we must give an honorary mention to the sidekicks who aren’t dogs but who we’d love to see on screen nonetheless!


Ariana Grande’s pig: Piggy Smallz. He is new to the celebrity life but seems to be handling fame just fine. I mean, he’s already the star of a music video, clearly, he has what it takes:




Olivia and Meredith: Taylor Swift's cats. I don’t like cats, but I like these cats. They are two sassy gals living their best life.


In this house, there is no correct or incorrect way to relax.

So all in all, here’s what we learned: Charlie is the greatest animal actor since that dog in The Artist, he is extra fluffy, should probably win an Oscar, and his dad is Bradley Cooper. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.
