Blake Lively’s dog had an “accident” at a photo shoot: bad dog or bad owner?

I feel like I’ve heard a version of this story before, only it involved a different celebrity and a different dog. Where did I hear this? Maybe it was that story last year about Ryan Gosling bringing his puppy George to yoga class where George peed inside. Probably. Anyway, in this week’s animal-defecation news, Blake Lively’s little dog Penny is a BAD DOG!! Blake brought Penny (and Ryan Reynolds’ puppy Baxter) to a magazine photo shoot and Penny had an “accident”. The bad news? Penny came close to mistaking a thousand-dollar Versace dress for a pee pad. The good news? Penny has bad aim.

Blake Lively nearly triggered a big stink by showing up to model for a splashy-glam magazine cover shoot toting cuddle-stud Ryan Reynolds’ dog, Baxter, and her own pet pooch Penny, but Momma’s adorable dog suddenly moved its bowels thisclose to a rack of floor-length, multi-thousand-dollar Versace gowns – dumping a poop pile barely an inch from the high-end duds.

“Blake was sooo embarrassed,” said a source. “She kept apologizing profusely about the mishap and thanking staffers who were cleaning up the mess.”

[From The Enquirer, print edition]

I’m including photos of Penny just to emphasize how small this little dog is. I mean, isn’t “a pile of poop” a little bit dramatic? I bet Penny’s poop resembles rabbit pellets. Anyway, yeah – this was embarrassing. For Blake and for Penny. Baxter must have been like, “Haha, now Penny has to stay home during mom’s photo shoots and I still get to come with her because I’m a good dog!” And lest you think I’m being overly dramatic with my anthropomorphism, dogs totally think like this. I remember my old dog, Ollie, would get super-happy when one of the cats did something bad. You’d be yelling at the cat and Ollie would get so much pleasure out of it. Baxter totally thinks this way. Penny is going to have to stay home from now on, and Baxter gets to be top dog with his main bitch Blake.

    dogs will be dogs

    who gives a crap? :P

  2. gee says:

    Eh.. It’s ‘bad’/distracted owner. She should have had someone take the dog out! Or put her in a penned off area away from the thousand dollar dresses.

  3. samira677 says:

    Dogs have accidents. I don’t see how that makes the dog or owner bad. If it happens all of the time then that’s a different story. Basically this is stupid, unnecessary gossip.

  4. Jazz says:

    I wonder how many ho’s poor Baxter has seen his owner with…

  5. marie says:

    You’d be surprised how big it can be coming out of a dog that small, my aunt has a tiny pup, so cute (the dog, that is). But anywho, why didn’t she walk the dog beforehand? I’d say bad owner rather than bad dog..

    • orion70 says:

      Yeah my dog isn’t all that big either and I don’t understand where it all comes from.

      Some dogs too, you can walk them, and then they will come indoors and five minutes later, surprise. My dog does this, but mostly because she’s old.

  6. Sue says:

    Does anyone know what kind of dog Penny is? She is too cute!

  7. Hanna says:

    Thats one funny looking dog.

  8. Bad Irene says:

    Penny and Baxter are the most interesting thing about their owners

  9. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I love animals but I have difficulty understanding the appeal of these super-tiny pups.

    Anyway, not a big deal. Dogs have accidents..
    Also, this time of year, I wake up to a pile of cat puke every other morning so it’s not just dogs that make a mess!

    • KK says:

      Ahhh cat puke season! That’s why my last purchase was a deep cleaner :)

    • Day says:

      There is nothing to understand. Different people like different things. Most times people get dogs that would fit into their particular lifestyle. When I was first looking for a pup, I wanted a golden retriever; but, I stay in a one bed room apt. and thought it would be kind of cruel to keep a dog like that locked up knowing I didn’t have a huge yard for it nor would I be able to walk it 3 to 4 times a day. So, I went w/a smaller dog because they don’t need that much exercise and are better suited for apt life. After 10 minutes of walking, my dog is trying to jump in my arms.

    Seems like dogs ( and children) will be perfect…until you’re in public. Stuff happens, glad the clothes are ok!!

  11. Katie says:

    Hello why can’t stars leave their dogs at home like the rest of the normal people in the world?

  12. hoya_chick says:

    Why didn’t she clean it up if she was so sorry and embarrassed? It’s her dog. I don’t understand pet owners that’s gross even if it’s a cute little dog. I doubt any of those ppl on the magazine shoot got to work that day thinking, yea I can’t wait to clean up Blake Lively’s dog sh!t. Gross.

  13. Roma says:

    I wish Baxter could have his own post. That’s one great looking dog.

  14. Joey says:

    I don’t bring my dog to work. Why is it so hard to leave them at home…where they can poop without it hitting the news?!

  15. QoFE says:

    Here’s an idea….how about leaving your dog at home? It’s an animal….it doesn’t need to be at a photo shoot, or Starbucks, or the mall, or the grocery store, or… get my drift.

  16. ZigZagZoey says:

    Ew, sorry to samll dog lovers, but that dog is gross. Give me a BIG DOG!
    Yes, much bigger poops, but worth it! ☻

    • Jordan says:

      I don’t understand the small dog vs. large dog arguments. Yes, people have preferences but generally when you see the small vs. large statements, there’s so much passion behind them. To me, dog lovers are dog lovers. All breeds have their particular traits, but dogs are dogs. I have a small, a medium, and a large dog (all 3 are rescues) and although they have their own personalities, they all act like dogs. Most of the time it’s the small one and the large one that is rough-housing with each other. They have no clue they are supposed to act a certain way because of their size.

  17. Jules says:

    How about properly training your pet, instead of using them for a prop? And is it possible for Lively to ever take a photo without her mouth hanging open?

  18. Axis2Cluster_B says:

    The most important part of this story is… BAXTER!!

  19. jamminatorr says:

    Its just a puppy. Puppies have less ability to hold it and don’t know exactly how to signal to the owners that they need to go. No one’s fault really.

    And really… if I COULD bring my dog to work I totally would. It would be awesome.

    • Rachel says:

      Agreed on both counts. I would totally take my dog to work with me.

      And the first thing I do whenever I take my dog to a place he’s never been before is show him the “out” door so he knows where to go to let me know he needs to go out.

  20. Jade says:

    Is that dog smiling in the second photo? Creepy!

  21. really says:

    There’s no such thing as a bad dog.
    But there are dogs that don’t behave the way we would like them to because their humans don’t communicate with them properly, or fail to give them enough exercise and/or attention.

  22. ladybert62 says:

    Those dogs are adorable – that little one is soooo cute! I WANT HIM.

    Dogs have accidents – just like babies do. That is life.

  23. Shelly says:

    Whatever. Pups have accidents, especially when they are in unfamiliar surroundings. I don’t think either pup or owner are bad.

  24. Sloane Wyatt says:

    C’mon! Little Penny is a tiny dog, and very small dogs have a tough time of holding it longer than a few hours.

    Blake could have easily curbed her puppy before hand, but if the shoot ran long, she and the crew may not have thought to stop for another doggy break. Bet Penny still gets to come, and now she’ll be on a ‘schedule’!

  25. Day says:

    I am surprised to see so many, ‘Why doesn’t she just leave her dogs at home’ comments. Wouldn’t most people love to have a job where they could bring their pets? I know I would b/c my dog hates being alone and I hate leaving her alone.

  26. Nora says:

    OMG, wait til you see this. I saw it on TV and didn’t think anything of it..I thought Blake was trying to be funny and not mean but HuffPo and some other people think she was dissing Oliver Stone. What do you think Kaiser?

    Oh and as for the dog it is super cute. I have seen him in another photo shoot that she did for Elle or Cosmo so she definitely brings him along to those things. I wonder if this is the first timet this happens to her? Or was it particularly bad this time? You’d think Blake would be prepared to handle it if that’s the case.

  27. olcranky says:

    first off, my dogs’s poops are bigger than this dog is

    secondly, if a dog is nervous/anxious it can drop some nasty soft serve even if it relieved itself shortly prior to “the accident”

  28. RMJ says:

    Britney did something very like this in her breakdown year – brought one of those chihuahuas to a shoot and it pooped on clothing worth thousands of dollars.

  29. hatsumomo says:

    It most likely happened because her dog isn’t trained. Who seriously takes puppies ANYWHERE untrained and unrestrained and expects good behaviour?!?! That kind of stupid behaviour on her part pisses me off. Why dosent she invest in a trainning kennel? They’re cheap and crate-training only takes a couple of months. I did it for my dog( my gravatar on the left!) And its been years since his last accident.

  30. crtb says:

    What a cutie!!!!
    and I’m a crazy cat lady.

  31. Gelina says:

    Why did she bring her dog to the photo shoot? Didn’t she realize that she would not have time to attend to the needs of her dog? Let’s try to be a bit more professional Ms. Lively! Bad owner.
