I don’t own a dog (mainly because my husband thinks trying to rear a dog in a cramped New York City apartment is damn near cruelty to animals), so I live vicariously through the people I see with pets. The ones I see at the dog park. The ones I see walking their furry friends on a Saturday. The ones I see letting their pets poop in the middle of the sidewalk on my block. Well, not those people actually…

And I’m getting my fill of living vicariously through pet owners today since it’s National Pet Day. Aside from everyday people though, plenty of celebrities are proud pet owners or just pure pet lovers. With that being said, check out 15 handsome fellas and the 15 very cute dogs and cats they’ve been pictured with. A big shoutout by the way for the assist from one of my favorite Instagram pages, Rappers With Puppies. Check them out for all of your assured warm fuzzies.

Frank Ocean

As a man of Muslim faith, Mahershala Ali can’t own a dog. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t love up on a cat — particularly one named after the rapper Nas.

Tupac Shakur

Because nothing can make even the hardest thug feel all warm and fuzzy inside like a puppy.

Chance the Rapper

This image of the Chicago-bred rapper is almost as cute as him.

Tom Hardy

Only an adorable dog could steal the spotlight from someone as fine as Brit actor Tom Hardy.

Until Drake can figure out his love life, his Akita named Diamond is the perfect companion.

Joe Budden

Cyn Santana may receive all of the rapper’s kisses these days, but he saves some for his dogs, as he’s an avid dog lover.

Kendrick Lamar

How cute is this fella? Oh, yeah, the dog is cute, too.


The real secret to Pharrell not looking a day over 28 is his friendship with cute pooches like this one.

Donald Glover

Although he’s been bitten on the a– by a dog before, that doesn’t stop theย Atlantaย star from rubbing the belly of a cute pup.

Big Sean

Who doesn’t love a picture of Big Sean and an even bigger dog having a moment?

Trey Songz

Triggaย not only taught his dog, Kane, how to do the basic dog tricks, but he also taught him how to strike a pose for the camera.
