We like watching pictures and videos of famous people spending time with their dogs. No matter how well-known you are, a dog’s love may be the greatest thing ever.
Before being adopted by John Travolta, Peanut the lovely rescue dog made an appearance in Jamie Lee Curtis’ Oscar night tribute to Betty White. She is one of our favorite celebrity pets.
The Grease actor recently posted yet another cute picture of himself and the puppy.
Benjamin’s younger son Travolta, 69, recently uploaded a charming picture of himself eating a slice of pizza with Peanut.
A delightful scene from Lady and the Tramp:
Travolta posted another picture of himself dozing off, this time with Peanut snuggling sweetly next to him, as if that wasn’t already too cute:
The Saturday Night Fever actress has posted a ton of cute pictures of Peanut online since the family adopted her in March.
A video that went viral last year showed the cute dog kissing Travolta awake. Travolta wrote, “This is how Ben’s dog, Peanut, wakes me up.”
Peanut’s tale of adoption
It’s evident that the Travoltas have found Peanut the ideal home, and one of the most heartwarming Hollywood tales in recent memory is the tale of how the Pulp Fiction actor and his family came to adopt Peanut.
During the “in memoriam” portion of the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony, Jamie Lee Curtis honored TV personality and animal lover Betty White, who passed away the previous December.
She and Peanut took the stage first, followed by Mac-N-Cheese, a rescue dog from Paw Works who was in need of a home.
“She was not just a Golden Girl; she was a legend who made every space she entered seem brighter and made everyone who saw her on screen smile,” Curtis said in an homage to the star. “And for nearly a century, she was a woman who showed unwavering compassion for animals like these, not just her friends with two legs.”
“Welcoming a rescue dog into your heart and home, like Mac-N-Cheese from Paw Works, is the best gift you could give Betty White.” I therefore want to thank Betty for being a friend to all of us.
Travolta was profoundly impacted by the little puppy, who enchanted viewers all across the world. When the actor ran into Curtis, a friend and co-star from the 1985 movie Perfect, backstage at the Oscars, he couldn’t help but snap a picture with the cute rescue puppy.
He gave Peanut a real “Hollywood ending,” realizing it was meant to be, and adopted the puppy for his son Benjamin.
We’re overjoyed to see Peanut enjoying herself so much with the Travoltas! These are really sweet photos—it was obviously meant to be.
Tell everyone about this sweet story, please!
