Condolences go out to George Clooney. 2006 has been a rough year for him pet-wise.
Thanks to Lynn for sending in this piece from CNN.com.
And for the record about that “world’s sexiest man thing,” I think he deserves it just for being a great supporter of animals! In my book, loving animals outranks quite a few other attributes!
George Clooney’s pig Max dies at age 19
George Clooney’s beloved potbelly pig Max has died, Clooney’s publicist said. He was 19.
Max, who lived at Clooney’s Hollywood Hills home, died “peacefully” of natural causes on Friday, Clooney’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, said by phone Monday.
“Max, like any pet, became a member of the family,” Rosenfield said. “He was a big pig, as pigs go. I can’t tell you how much he weighed.”
The Oscar-winning actor, 45, who owned the hog for 18 years and reportedly once said the porker was his longest relationship, told USA Today, “I was really surprised, because he’s been a big part of my life.”
Another Clooney pet — his bulldog Bud — died earlier this year, Rosenfield said.
