Jennifer Aniston - who is besotted with her current pet Norman and stars opposite a dog in her new movie 'Marley and Me' - says her first pooch hated her
Jennifer Aniston's first dog hated her.
The 39-year-old pet lover - who shares the screen with a golden retriever in her new movie 'Marley and Me' - insists she had bad experiences with her poodle pal in her younger days.
She said: "My first pet was Demetri, a white poodle. But he did not like me much because I would always pull on its tail. But I was three, I thought he was a toy."
The former 'Friends' star is much nicer to her current furry friend, corgi-terrier cross-breed Norman.
She said: "There's no dog like him. He's just a person in a furry outfit. I don't even know how to describe him. He's a wise old man who could, with a look, with one stare, could crush me. He's a laser light beaming into my soul."
Unfortunately, Norman doesn't feel the same way about Jennifer's boyfriend John Mayer.
A source said: "It's funny because John likes dogs but for some reason Norman has taken a disliking to him. Jennifer dotes on Norman. She treats him like a child but she's got to the point where she's had to keep him out of the way if John is around."
Jennifer loves her dog so much, she reportedly splashes out $250 a week on massage, Reiki and acupuncture treatments for the ageing canine.
