We love to see photos and videos of celebrities bonding with their beloved pets. No matter how famous you are, a dog’s love can be the best thing in the world.
One of our favorite celebrity pets is Peanut, the adorable rescue dog who was featured in Jamie Lee Curtis’ Oscar night tribute to Betty White before getting adopted by John Travolta.
The Grease star recently shared another heartwarming photo of him with the dog, and it’s truly adorable.
Travolta, 69, recently shared a sweet photo of him sharing a slice of pizza with Peanut, who belongs to his youngest son Benjamin.
It’s a sweet moment straight out of Lady and the Tramp:
If that wasn’t adorable enough, Travolta also shared another photo of him sleeping, with Peanut contentedly cuddling up with him for a nap:
The Saturday Night Fever icon has shared many adorable photos of Peanut since the family adopted her last March.
A video of the adorable dog waking Travolta up with some doggy kisses went viral last year. “This is how Ben’s dog Peanut wakes me up,” Travolta wrote.
Peanut’s adoption story
It’s clear that Peanut has truly found the perfect home with the Travoltas, and the story of how he came to be adopted by the Pulp Fiction star and his family is one of the most heartwarming Hollywood stories of recent years.
During the “in memoriam” segment of the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony, Jamie Lee Curtis paid tribute to TV icon and animal advocate Betty White, who had died the previous December.
She took to the stage holding Peanut, then a Paw Works rescue puppy named Mac-N-Cheese who was looking for a home.
“She was not only a Golden Girl, she was a legend who brightened every room she walked in and brought a smile to the faces of all who watched her on the screen,” Curtis said in her tribute to White. “And day in and day out for almost a century, she was a woman who cared so much for not just her two-legged friends but for animals just like this.”
“So the greatest gift you could give Betty White is to open your heart and your home and adopt a rescue dog just like Mac-N-Cheese from Paw Works. So thank you, Betty, thank you for being a friend to us all.”
The little dog delighted audiences around the world — and made a big impression on Travolta. The actor caught up with Curtis, his friend and co-star in the 1985 film Perfect, backstage at the Oscars and couldn’t resist getting a picture with the sweet rescue dog.
Realizing it was meant to be, he adopted the dog for his son Benjamin, giving Peanut a true “Hollywood ending.”
We’re so glad Peanut is living her best life with the Travolta family! What adorable photos — it was truly meant to be ❤️
