Ashley Olsen layered up to take her dachshund for a walk around NYC on Saturday. She juggled a venti Starbucks coffee, two bags, and, at times, her dog, as she strolled through the West Village. Ashley and Mary-Kate were recently in Manhattan debuting the newest addition to their fashion empire — Mary-Kate and Ashley are launching a line of lower-priced handbags for Elizabeth and James. The more-accessible bags are the latest designs from the twins, who also have their labels The Row, Olsenboye, and StyleMint to spearhead. They'll show off their latest The Row collection with a presentation next Monday during New York Fashion Week.
Britney Spears wore cutoff shorts for a trip to the veterinarian with her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, in LA yesterday. She held one of her puppies while her sons followed behind. Britney spent the weekend close to home with her boys, but she was also the topic of conversation in New Orleans. Justin Timberlake reportedly called Britney a "b*tch" during his set at a pre-Super Bowl concert on Saturday, and he later took to Twitter to clear things up. Justin wrote, "Ok. I see you. Wouldn't disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever. #Relax #It'sBritneyB*tch. I do love that saying though . . . #Respect."
Britney's been a part of the Super Bowl fun in the past, and despite sitting this year's festivities out, she may be returning to the spotlight soon if her $100 million deal with Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas is confirmed. Britney hinted at her potential new gig by responding to her puppy Hannah's tweet "Mommy, are dogs allowed to gamble in Vegas? Gonna cash all my bones in for chips" with "I don't think so honey #VivaLasVegas."
There's no denying that Boo is the cutest dog around. With a new book coming out this Spring filled with adorable pictures of Boo and the letters of the alphabet, I had the chance to chat with the lucky lady that gets to take the supercute pictures of our favorite dog. Along with photographing Boo, Gretchen LeMaistre has also taken pictures of other pets and celebrities at her studio.

Jennifer Lopez shows off pictures and talks about the newest addition to her family, a boxer puppy!
Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Shulman, took their dog, Esmeralda, for a stroll around Brooklyn yesterday. Their NYC outing came ahead of some exciting news for Anne. It was announced this morning that she received an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress for her role in Les Misérables. Along with Anne's nomination, the film nabbed eight Oscar nods in total, including best picture. The honors don't end there — Anne is also up for best supporting actress at tonight's Critics' Choice Awards, where we'll be LIVE on the red carpet and backstage.
Earlier this week, Anne got a head start on her award season winnings when she stepped out at the National Board of Review Gala to accept the best ensemble honor with her Les Mis costars Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried.
Miley Cyrus threw on her "Homies" sweatshirt to visit a recording studio in LA Friday. She didn't have fiancé Liam Hemsworth by her side — though they did spend the holidays together with family — and instead brought along her new puppy. Miley's new dog Bean, one of her many pets, was introduced to the world in a tweet last week. The pup is a chihuahua mix, and Miley's been all about sharing photos of their adventures together over the last few days. Bean's not the only new addition to Miley's life. She sparked rumors that she and Liam actually tied the knot at the end of last month when she posted a social media picture featuring both of them wearing new bands on their ring fingers. Yesterday, Miley was solo again to pick up Mexican at Sharky's.
Not only do celebrities love their pets, but they also love sharing adorable pictures on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. This year has been a big one for celebs and their pets. Here's a collection of the best pictures of celebrities and their pets from 2012, from Miley Cyrus's new pup to Kim Kardashian's sweet little kitty.
Miley Cyrus was spotted hanging out with her best friend, Cheyne Thomas, in Philadelphia, PA, yesterday. She kept her look neutral in all black, and layered on cozy accessories like a beanie and knitted snood. Miley's been on the East Coast with her Miniature Husky, Floyd, for the past few days, while fiancé Liam Hemsworth wraps up production on Paranoia.
It's Miley and Liam's first holiday together as an engaged couple, and even though he's busy in front of the cameras, it appears the pair are doing their best to spend time together. The past 12 months have been full of personal and professional highlights for Miley and Liam, and 2013 is ramping up to be equally exciting. Miley's prepping to release an album, and we'll see Liam on the big screen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Empire State, and Paranoia.
Miley Cyrus bundled up for a coffee run with her Siberian Husky puppy Floyd in Philadelphia yesterday. She wore a parka and black hooded scarf and chatted with a male friend while walking around a park with her warm drink in hand. Miley traveled to the East Coast on Monday with Floyd, who she snapped sleeping on their private jet during their journey. She's back in Philadelphia to spend some time with her other guy, Liam Hemsworth, while he films Paranoia in the city and has already visited him on set. Miley's focused on her fiancé after performing at the VH1 Divas concert in LA over the weekend.
