Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik
They have a No. 1 album, are adored by millions of teen girls, and landed their own TV show
, but something is missing for breakout boy band One Direction
: a dog!
Bandmate Liam Payne told fans in a web chat
with Saturday Night Online
that the one thing the band wishes they could bring on tour is a dog.
The British heartthrobs weren't unanimous about the type of pet they'd tour with: Harry Styles said he'd bring a cat if they were allowed to, and Louis Tomlinson opted for a chimpanzee.
Their tour buses may be fur-free for now, but One Direction makes time for four-legged friends whenever they can. Last week, the guys cuddled up
to some adorable homeless pitbull pups as they sang for a Philadelphia radio station – and Liam used the opportunity to ask fans for some help with his troublemaking pets.
"I've got two pet turtles," he said
, "but they got separated because one's been chewing the other one's foot. Does anybody know how to stop that?"
