It’s true, everyone from Andy Warhol to Ernest Hemingway had a beloved pet (or two or three) who inspired their works and acted as their best friends. Some were more obscure (along with Mexican hairless dogs, Frida Kahlo had a fawn, monkeys, parakeets, and many more), while others were loyal pups that followed them to interviews, photoshoots, and appeared in many of their famous works.
