|I'm glad you picked me rather than George Clooney. And I didn't say that|
just because you gave me a new rawhide bone.

"The Sexiest Man Alive" or otherwise known as George Clooney is an ardent animal lover. Sound good? Not only does he look good, but he also loves four-legged critters, and previously cherished a 300 pound pet pig named Max until his beloved porcine passed away in December, 2006. About a year-and-a half-ago, Clooney ached for a dog to love, so he went online and spotted a cocker spaniel mix breed named #Einstein from a local animal shelter. The only qualifications for Clooney was the dog had to be housebroken, and as the heartthrob Hollywood actor watched the video of how awful the rescue dog looked when he was brought into the shelter and then how he looked when cleaned up - Clooney just sighed, " God, I love this dog." So Clooney called the shelter, and of course, just like any would be adopter the shelter had to check out Einstein's proposed new home and determine if Einstein made a connection to Clooney. COMMENT: HOW DID THE SHELTER DETERMINE WHICH WORKER WOULD VISIT CLOONEY’S HOME? WAS IT A VOTE? OR DID ALL THE SHELTER WORKERS GO, JUST TO MAKE SURE CLOONEY WOULD BE A GOOD OWNER?: So our Oceans Eleven actor had already fallen madly in love with Einstein, and somehow had to make sure Einstein felt the same. In the interview with Esquire Magazine, January 2012 Meaning of Life issue, Clooney admits to running into his kitchen and rubbing turkey meatballs all over his shoes just before the arrival of the shelter representatives and Einstein. COMMENT: DID EINSTEIN GET THE SHOES AFTER THE SHELTER REPS LEFT? DID GEORGE EVER WEAR THE SHOES AGAIN? WHAT HAPPENED WHEN HE WENT OUTSIDE WITH HIS TURKEY MEATBALL SHOES? Clooney states: "I start to panic that Einstein is not going to like me, so I run into the kitchen, where I have these turkey meatballs, and I rub them all over my shoes... Who knew Einstein was such a food whore on top of everything? He throws himself at my feet."
Nowadays Einstein and Clooney are best friends, but Clooney insists his dog knows him best as the "guy with the meatball feet."
