Woody the standard poodle doesn’t have to buy a movie ticket to hear Jeff Goldblum‘s “powerful” voice — the gorgeous pooch gets to hear it at home every day.
The 5-year-old canine is Goldblum’s muse, an obsession that was especially handy when the actor voiced a gossipy stray in Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs.
From Woody, Goldblum, 66, learned how to embody a dog’s protective nature.
The poodle’s devotion to his dog dad is just one of the many things that makes him a wonderful pet.
“I like caring and being deeply in love with this creature,” Goldblum tells PEOPLE. “I believe that they are equally spiritually substantial, deserving of a free and lovely life.”
