When Gomez visited an animal shelter with boyfriend Justin Bieber last year, she didn't think she would be walking out with a new dog – but fate had other plans. "I literally felt like he said my name," she said of her Husky mix, Baylor. "So, I had to have him."

Not only is Stewart a noted beauty – she's featured in PEOPLE's 2012 annual issue – her three dogs are too! Chow Chow Ghenghis Khan looks so good, in fact, he won Best of Breed at Westminster this year, an honor he celebrated with a posh meal at New York City's Plaza Hotel.
