She's just the sweetest!
Hayden Panettiere is in the last days of her pregnancy, and she's already in a caretaker mindframe.
The actress posted a sweet note about her recent trip to the Kiev Zoo, where she met Tony the Gorilla. She explained:
"I was being escorted around the backside of the monkey exhibits when there he was, a massive, furry, black creature that made even the Klitschko brothers look small!"

She and Tony shared a moment, and that's when Hayden realized she had to do something to help not only this majestic, intelligent primate, but also to benefit the paying zoo-goers in the city that she calls her 'second home' as well.
So, Hayden is paying for Tony to have a bigger, nicer enclosure with more toys to occupy his mind.
The actress posted a beautifully written note about the experience, which you can see in its entirety
Charles Esten, who plays Deacon Claybourne on Nashville, has fallen for one of his costars!
A yellow Lab puppy named Blue!!
Blue played a pup given to his character by Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere.
Charles' character eventually gave away the dog to an onscreen love interest, played by Susan Misner, but he was not going to give up the pup so easy in real life!
So he adopted the pooch!
He tweeted a cute pic (above) and wrote:
Nashville actress Hayden Panettiere was caught with another loved one beside her boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko!!!
And he was a real dog!
Actually, she was caught hugging it up with an adorable puppy in Miami, Florida.
She's a star in the sun with a CUTE puppy.
That's the life!!!
Hayden is definitely one of our HEROES!!!

Hayden Panettiere says vegetarianism isn't for her after trying it out and feeling tired throughout the day.
In an interview with Self Magazine, the actress explains why she decided to hop back on the meat wagon.
He stared in the Oscar-winning movie about dolphin-killing in Japan with Hayden Panettiere, but Ric O'Barry's fight against dolphin hunting isn't over.
Recently Cove star traveled to the tiny island Miyakejima - a place were dolphins are are only used for tourism (and never killed for soup)! The actor gushed over the dolphin paradise, saying:
"It's very encouraging to see people celebrating dolphins, respecting dolphins, and I'm all for that. We support them all the way."
You can support the dolphin loving people of Miyakejima by visiting the island of 2,700 people south of Tokyo. O'Barry hopes that a rise in tourism will encourage eastern islands to adopt the same dolphin-friendly policy.
Right now the famous dolphin activist is headed back to the same town in Taiji that his notorious documentary The Cove was shot, to protest the annual dolphin hunt that's set to starts Sept. 1.
How can someone so cute also be nice??
At 22-years-old, actress Hayden Panettiere has already done a lot for fave animals by becoming a spokeswoman for the Whaleman Foundation.
The blonde starlet talks all about her love for marine animals in the September issue of Conde Nast Traveler, where she describes herself to the magazine as "realistic activist." She says:
"I'm an activist who's aware of what's realistic to achieve and what's not. I wouldn't waste my time going straight for the jugular — I'm not going to preach to people to not eat meat. The Whaleman Foundation's goals are achievable, and they make sense."
We totally respect that!

What a sweetie!
Turns out Hayden Panettiere has a soft spot for all animals, but one dog holds a special place in her life.
At Neutrogena's 2nd Annual Wave for Change event the actress told the story of how she rescued her pup.
"My baby, my angel Kayla, was my first dog, and I rescued her off the street. I gave [the woman] a couple hundred bucks. It seemed like she was really trying to get help. It was a gift in both ways. I got the dog, and I helped [the woman] buy a bus ticket, and I gave her money for food. She actually left a message on my friend's phone and said, 'Please take good care of my dog, I just want you to know that I bought a bus ticket and I'm going home.'"
Panettiere is convinced she found an old soul and a kindred spirit in Kayla.
"There is something about street dogs, about rescues; they have this knowing sense about them. The first time I told her to sit, she sat. She is just the most loving, docile puppy. She really is a wise little girl."
A sweet puppy is perfect for the kind actress!
