Robert Plant & Strider
"There ain't no companion like a blue-eyed Merle." Robert Plant's relationship with his late border collie Strider (named after Tolkien’s character, Aragorn) can still be felt in the song Bron-Y-Aur-Stomp – Plant often calls out the dog's name during live performances.
Elvis Presley & Foxhugh
It turns out the King of Pop had everything BUT a hound dog. Over his short life, Presley owned a lot of dogs with creative names: Baba, Edmund, Getlo, Muffin, Stuff, Sweat Pea, etc. – but Foxhugh, a white maltese, was an important part of Presley's high-profile relationship with Linda Thompson during the 1970s.

Miley Cyrus & Happy
Any pup that gets adopted by a millionaire pop star has hit the jackpot, especially one left for dead.
