I have the feeling that there will be little interest in this story, but I find it hysterical and couldn’t resist. It dovetails nicely with Kaiser’s story about Gerard Butler’s pampered dog, too, because here’s another Hollywood player treating his dog nicer than the women he dates. (I didn’t do this story to copy Kaiser or anything, we just coincidentally have two dog stories today. Great minds!)
So Ryan Gosling has this big dog, George, that he adores and has been seen carrying around. He even brought his dog with him on the Jimmy Fallon show, where George was sporting a mohawk. (Really, you can see that here.) Ryan loves his dog so much that he’s brought him with him to yoga class. George of course disrupted everyone while they were trying to work out, probably by sniffing their butts when they were in the downward dog position. (yuck yuck!) Then George meandered over and peed in the corner, causing the instructor to order him out of the room. Ryan had the gall to bring George back another day to class though, where George was promptly banned. Bad dog!
Ryan Gosling… has been causing a ruckus in his West Hollywood yoga class by bringing along his beloved pooch George – who interrupts workouts by pestering people, barking and even marking his territory!
“Ryan is a great guy and everyone in class loves him, but they find it very disrespectful that he brings his dog,” revealed a gym insider. “Ryan put a mat next to him and attempted to get George to stay on it. But it only took about 30 seconds before George began walking around and disturbing people who were trying to concentrate on their workouts.
“The instructor finally asked Ryan to remove George from the room after the dog began relieving himself in the corner!”…
The worst part about the yoga fiasco, said the insider, is that…
“He actually tried to bring him to class again,” added the insider. “The instructor immediately told him George was not allowed back in class!”

I just love the image this puts in my head. It’s so absurd to bring a big dog to yoga class and for that dog to bug everyone and then go pee in the corner. It’s like a predictable scene from a romcom that still cracks you the hell up. I told my seven year old this story and we were laughing our asses off at it. If I were in that yoga class, though, I would be pissed off. Hopefully I wouldn’t be pissed on though. (Sorry I couldn’t resist!)
Here’s Gosling with George at the airport in June. He’s also shown filming Gangster Squad in late September, where he’s cozying up to a bulldog. Cute! Credit: Fame Pictures
