As an animal lover, I understand that pets are important fixtures in people's lives and, for those in the public eye, it's easy to see celebrities' bonds with the cute pets that share their homes and lives — and feel a connection to them as well. So, as part of our Best of 2007 coverage, I surveyed PetSugar readers to see which celebrity's pet you missed seeing, hearing, or reading about during 2007 and you said . . .
With half the votes, George Clooney's pot-bellied pig is the pet you missed the most last year! He lived to 18 (while being arthritic and partially blind), which is a ripe, old age for an animal weighing in at over 300 lbs. Rumored to be called "Max the Star" by George himself, this chubby fellow would squeal for his meal every morning and was truly treasured and pampered by his celebrity dad who considered the pet to be his longest relationship.
