We all know how much Tori Spelling, 33, loves her son Liam Aaron, 6 weeks. But before Liam, she had another baby to love – her pug, Mimi La Rue. In fact, she and husband Dean McDermott‘s B&B, Chateau La Rue, is named after her. Tori talked to Oprah today about the adjustment from her dog baby to a real one.
Everyone told me, because I was so crazy and obsessed with Mimi, theysaid, ‘Once you have a child, you’ll realize that a dog is just a dog.’And now that I have a child, I mean, there’s no other love like thelove I feel for my child. But she is still not a dog. I still think of her as my second baby.
Tori hopes Liam will inherit the same puppy love she has.
I always had pets growing up and it made a huge difference. I’m excited for him to have little furry friends around that he canlove and they’ll love him.
In addition to Mimi La Rue, Tori and Dean also have Ferris and Chiquita. Dean describes their babies as such:
Our family is three parts fur, one part skin. Three of them are barkers, and one’s a pooper.
Does your family have fur babies?
