Ever since skateboarder Rob Dyrdek hit it big, so to speak, with his MTV series Rob & Big, life has been crazy. But there's been one constant in his life: his dog, Meaty.
"He's the only person who's been with me through it all," Dyrdek tells PEOPLE. "The one I can depend on every time I come home. Big old fat Meaty."
The two are so entwined that when Dyrdek began developing his new show, an animated series for Nicktoons called Wild Grinders, he knew he had to include his beloved 6-year-old pooch.
