So where is Thurman Murman, Rachel Bilson’s adorable pooch, when she is traveling to New York and attending the Ann Taylor Fall 2010 fashion collection?

“I’m from L.A., so my mom’s there. So my dog gets to stay with Grandma,” says Bilson, wearing several pieces by Ann Taylor in the lobby of the Ace Hotel (right), where the clothing retailer held its presentation on March 25.

But Bilson keeps in touch when she’s away – she’s got her dog’s number. “I hear him barking in the background,” she says of calling her mom. “We’re both crazy dog people. So she’ll try to get him on the phone.”

And is her fiancé Hayden Christensen a dog person? “He is,” says Bilson – but no word on whether he’s got Thurman Murman on speed-dial, too.
