Some canines have all the luck, like Marini's French bulldog Mila, who frequently uses the actor's toned biceps as pillows. Ruff life.

Jackman's dalliances with dog Dali – from European vacations to take your dog to work days – would make any fan jealous. Luckily, the French bulldog is cute as a button, so all is fur-given.

Everyone loves a guy who proudly shows off his affection for cats. If he and pal Taylor Swift (a fellow feline lover!) would just get married already and keep oodles of kittens, the world would be purr-fect.

The former Hills star has two Rottweilers, Tank and Radar, and a French bulldog named Chunk, to shower with hugs and kisses. If his name means anything, Tank here knows just how to use his brawn to get his fair share.
