Robbie Williams REALLY cares about his eight dogs.
So much so, that he isn't willing to risk leaving them inside the hold of a plane from El Lay to London!
The singer will be spending $5600 on his dogs to give them a luxury cruise across the Atlantic.
For Robbie Williams, his dogs come before work.
All eight of them.
When asked about how his fellow band mate was a judge on the British version of X Factor, he said:
Ellen the elephant, who painted and played the harmonica, was an Arkansas celebrity for nearly 57 YEARS, so much so that mourners braved 100-degree heat on Sunday to attend a memorial service for her.
Ellen died on July 5th from a stroke or heart attack at the age of 60.
For decades, children and adults visited the Asian elephant, celebrated her birthdays and watched her paint abstracts that were sold at zoo auctions to raise money for new projects.
Not only could Ellen paint and play the harmonica, she also played the piano and enjoyed walking through the zoo each morning before it opened.
Her keepers said the elephant would purposefully walk over to see Sue, the white rhinoceros, and Sue would greet her.
AW!! She will be missed by a multitude of mammals!

Take the dogs — just don't hurt me!
Robbie Williams was seen leaving his his hotel in Manchester, with an arm full of doggies Monday.
The British singer was caught using his fluffy pups to shield his face when two men breached the security barriers and ran towards him. Guards (we assume of the royal variety) quickly stepped in and saved Robbie and his pups.
But Robbie dashed into his waiting limo all the same.

He explains in his new book, You Know Me:
"The press continually do the same story, the headline that should be - 'Guy That Used To Be Young Gets Progressively Older ..', 'Hair Turns A Different Colour', etc etc. So I was just trying out different colours to see what would suit me if I dyed my hair, using the dogs as colour pods. I think there could be a new website in there somewhere where people send pictures of themselves with their dogs as wigs."
Not a terrible idea, bb!
But we're not sure that dog fur is your color!
Or maybe it's just the whole bizarre, homeless person aesthetic in which these photos are taken that doesn't help!
