A howling good time! Celebrities are just like Us — they love to dress up their furry friends for Halloween.
Miley Cyrus, for one, is a known pet lover and cannot resist adopting when she feels an animal is the right fit for her. She added to her family in February 2021 after the death of her pit bull mix Mary Jane, who battled cancer.
“Almost two months ago my best friend a rescued pit mix Mary Jane left this world,” the Disney Channel alum wrote via Instagram at the time. “I knew she wasn’t gone for good. She had out lived the body she was in but she never said goodbye ….. with her eyes she whispered ‘See you soon Bestie.’ Mary Jane defined loyalty and would never break a promise.”
Cyrus noted that she felt Mary Jane brought her new pup, Angel, into her life. “I feel her here with me blessing this new member to my family who’s [sic] name is ‘Angel’ because she was delivered to me by one… My Mary,” she continued. “It breaks my heart to know Angel was sleeping on concrete in a shelter for 3 months before finally making it home. The stigma and stereotype that surrounds pit bulls tears me in two. This breed is incomparably loving. Just like humans nurture often overrides nature.”
The singer concluded: “I am head over heels in love. Not sure I will ever sleep again because I can’t take my eyes off of her! Her halo shines for all to see and I can’t wait to show her off! It’s pretty cool having an Angel on a leash! She is illuminated by the aura of the late and great Mary Jane. Long live love. It never dies.”
Dwayne Johnson, meanwhile, not only enjoys putting his dog Hobbs in costume for Halloween but also for his big-screen projects. The actor joked via Instagram in March 2016 that his pup was angry with him for not casting him in his 2017 film remake of Baywatch, but the French bulldog finally got his due in 2019 when he made a cameo in Hobbs & Shaw. The role was only fitting given that Hobbs is named after Johnson’s character from the Fast and Furious franchise.
