Jordin Sparks has a labrador and three schnauzer-bichon-poodle mixes who rarely leave her side. She even takes them on tour with her, to help keep things calm and familiar. She said:
"There's a comfort level that they bring when they're around. I miss cuddling with them and them going crazy when they've been on the bus too long."
So cute! They also help her wind down while on tour.
"Minnie actually helps relieve stress. You just can't stay mad or frustrated when you have a cuddly puppy around!"
We definitely agree with that!
She’s such a dog lover that she became the official ambassador for Collars for a Cause, who helps the Spay-Neuter Assistance Program provide animal services to those with little money to do so themselves.
Looks like she’s on her way to living how she wants, adding:
"I know it's lame but the quote 'I want to be the person my dog thinks I am' applies here. They wait for us no matter what and love unconditionally. I should be that 'person' every day."
We should all hope to be that kind of person.

The big city can be a scary place. That’s why Jordin Sparks and her schnoodle Miles keep each other company while she is in New York performing in Broadway’s In The Heights.
“He’s doing well,” said Jordan about Miles. “He’s young, nine months, and he’s getting used to meeting new dogs. People walk their dogs everywhere, so he’s making a lot of new friends.”
Jordin said that because her life can be so hectic, especially now that she works on Broadway, having a dog keeps her level-headed.
“Animals have always helped calm me down and helped relax me. They’re great to have. They’ve definitely become … I don’t have kids, but that’s the love that you feel. You’re so attached to them, and you want to be with them all the time. Yeah, I do talk to him sometimes, but it’s nice. He’s so cute.
Aww! We’re glad you have some company, Jordin!
