When Amanda Bynes made her way around New York City on Wednesday, it wasn’t one of her wig selections commanding the spotlight.

Nope, it was a furry friend.

Just a day after the troubled actress made her latest appearance in court – in connection with her alleged May bong-throwing incident – she had her hands full with her constant canine companion.

En route to the Chelsea Kennel Club, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, she held the dog over her face, seemingly to shield herself from the paparazzi (or perhaps the pup-arazzi).

She’s due to return to court for another hearing on Aug. 26.
