Shirley MacLaine’s Puppy-Dog Love

Shirley MacLaine was in Germany yesterday, shopping and making friends with the local pooches. Perhaps she recognized a reincarnated spirit in one of the canines?

While the German hounds were cute, Shirley didn’t need to  stray from America to make friends with bowsers in front of the camera.

Stars from Leighton Meester to Hayden Panettiere have made puppy love for the photogs.

Then there’s Mickey Rourke. He manages to make sweet pup moments creepy and off-putting.

But hey, at least he’s allowed to own a dog. Unlike some people.
