Celebrities and their pets: They're just like us, except they're incredibly well-acquainted the sort of supreme pampering that the rest of LA's plebeian pets can only enjoy on special occasions. Given America's obsession with our city's starry citizens, it's no surprise that their four-legged family members would gain just as much devotion—especially when celebs turn to Instagram to profess love for their pets. From a surfing poodle to a jet-setting piglet, get to know a few of Hollywood's luckiest animals and their famous parents below.
