Chelsea Handler & Chunk, 10, a chow chow and German shepherd mix

"Thanks for letting me put those stupid bandanas around your neck. I know you don't agree, but it really adds to your personality. Thank you for not taking shadoobies on the floor. And thank you for not being a cat. You were my dog the minute I laid eyes on you. Thank you for making me a mommy. You will always be my main man."

Oprah Winfrey & Luke, 7, a golden retriever

"When all the others are out busy sniffing for adventure, you're the one who returns repeatedly to the trail to see if I'm OK and following your lead, the one waiting on the porch for my return from places too far off for a dog mind to ponder. You're always in the now, always present. Always love. You're my alpha."

Fran Drescher & Esther, 11, a Pomeranian

"You are a light from God. An angel. You don't have a mean bone in your body. I am blessed to have you in my life. You taught me a great life lesson: that you can love, lose and love again! Thank you for that, my darling girl-you are a magical creature, and I witness you as you cast your loving spell on all who cross your path. I love you, Esther. Don't ever leave me."

Robin Roberts & KJ, 14, a Jack Russell terrier

"Can't imagine my life without you and I don't wanna! You helped me ... laying your sweet head on whatever was hurting me. How did you know? I love you!"

Kelly Preston & Bear, 3, a rescue dog

"You found me when I needed you most. I looked in your eyes and felt I'd known you before. I feel I know who helped guide you to us.... Your sweetness helped heal my heart. Some say we rescued you.... I think it was the other way around."

Willow Smith & Abby, 1, a Yorkshire terrier

"Dear Abby, I love you so much; you're so sweet and friendly! I just don't like it when you pee everywhere!! :)

I love you!

Mommy"
