It's good to be a celebrity ... pet. OK! magazine runs down seven of the richest and/or most expensive famous animals:

  • Paris Hilton spent $13,000 on a teeny-tiny Pomeranian, Mr. Amazing, who weighs less than one pound.
  • Lauren Bacall loved her pup Sophie so much that when she died this year, she left $10,000 for the dog's care.

  • Similarly, Leona Helmsley left money—but a lot more of it—for her Maltese, Trouble. Think $12 million.
  • Miss Missy may not be owned by a celebrity, but she is a celebrity—in the world of cows. She won one of the most renowned animal championships around the globe back in 2009, and her owner paid $1.2 million to hang onto her.
