Pets offer unconditional love that's both special and unique. For this reason, many animal owners opt to bring their furry friends along while traveling, rather than boarding them or leaving them with a pet sitter. Celebrities are no different, and many high-profile stars can't bear to be separated from their beloved animals while they're on location filming or vacationing throughout the world. Here's a look at some A-list stars who are famous for traveling with their pets.
1. Miranda Kerr - Frankie
When supermodel Miranda Kerr isn't carrying her son Flynn, she's usually holding her Yorkie pup, Frankie. Kerr and hubby Orlando Bloom frequently travel between New York and Los Angeles, and Frankie usually travels with them. Frankie flies in style too! Kerr has a specially-designed shoulder bag for transporting her beloved pooch.
2. Kelly Clarkson - Security and Joplin
Former "American Idol" Kelly Clarkson has found unconditional love with her two dogs, a Poodle named Joplin and a Maltese named Security. Kelly and her dogs recently made a big entrance at a hotel in Seattle, Washington. A witness said, "the two little pups were like sled dogs pulling her toward the elevators. Clarkson couldn't stop smiling, but it was a question of who was walking who!" We wonder if she had to call "Security."
3. Russell Brand - Morrissey
That's not a purse Russell Brand is carrying - it's his much-loved cat, Morrissey! While filming the movie "Arthur," Brand traveled between New York and Los Angeles with his kitty by his side. He even tweeted a picture of Morrissey in his grey cat carrier, which does look like a large handbag.
4. Kristen Stewart - Max
In an interview, K-Stew referred to herself as a "crazy cat lady" and spoke of her love for her Bengal cat, Max. Nicknamed "Jella," Max sometimes freaks out during flights; Kristen says he meows a lot! Despite the temporary stress, Kristen can't stand to leave her cat behind when she travels, so she arranges for him to come along.
5. Sophia Bush - Patch and Penny
"One Tree Hill" actress Sophia Bush often traveled between Los Angeles and Wilmington, North Carolina, where the series was filmed. Fortunately for Bush, she had great traveling buddies in the form of her dogs Patch (who has one eye) and Penny. On one occasion, Sofia was spotted moving a massive travel crate through the terminal and navigating through security with her extra large pups.
6. Vanessa Minnillo - Wookie
If her interactions with Wookie are any indication, we're betting Vanessa Minnillo will make a great mom! The actress is expecting her first baby with hubby Nick Lachey, and she's had loads of practice holding and caring for a different sort of baby - her dog Wookie. Vanessa and her pup are frequently photographed entering and leaving LAX, since she takes him almost everywhere she goes, including Shreveport, Louisiana, while she filmed "Disaster Movie."
7. Dita Von Teese - Edgar, Aleister, and Herman
Model-turned-actress Dita Von Teese is the proud owner of three Devon Rex cats, and they're frequently spotted with her as she travels in and out of LAX. Like Dita, the kitties travel in style, and are frequently seen making their way through the terminal and security checkpoints in a monogrammed leather carrier. How posh!
8. Susan Sarandon - Penny
Another well-traveled pooch is Academy Award-winner Susan Sarandon's dog, Penny. The Pomeranian-Maltese mix accompanied Sarandon to New York, where the two appeared together on "Saturday Night Live" and "Live With Regis & Kelly." The pair have also traveled abroad together, and were seen arriving at the Berlin airport last year.
9. Bradley Cooper - Charlotte
He may come across as tough, but Bradley Cooper has a huge soft spot for his dog, a Chow-Retriever mix named Charlotte. Since he rescued her from an animal shelter, Charlotte has barely left Bradley's side, and she even accompanied him to Mexico while he filmed "Limitless."
10. Ashley Greene - Marlo
"Twilight" actress Ashley Greene sure goes for the ones with fangs! Greene was seen getting puppy smooches from Marlo, her cute Toy Fox Terrier, after the two arrived in New York City. The duo frequently travel across the country together, and Marlo was even snapped sporting a snazzy travel sweater while leaving Los Angeles.
