“The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.” – Johnny Depp

Yes, I’m drooling! Johnny Depp. Captain Jack Sparrow. The two go together like kibbles and bits. That’s why at Halloween (or any other time of year) the celebrity I most want to be is HIM. ‘Cause he’s oh so cool and seriously cute … for a human. I know I’d be willing to eat right out of his hand!

Ok, so 2011’s “Rango” was a bit of a snooze fest. But Johnny Depp has made every single flick in the Pirates of the Caribbean series a definite must see for this four-legged fan: from “The Curse of the Black Pearl”, back in 2003, all the way up to “On Stranger Tides” released in 2011.

He’s voiced characters for the small screen, too, appearing on TV’s Family Guy and SpongeBob SquarePants: He resurrected his Edward Scissorhands character in the “Lois Comes Out of Her Shell” episode and played Jack Kahuna Laguna in “SpongeBob SqurePants vs. The Big One”.

And, he’s still in the acting game! “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is set for release in 2016. “Alice in Wonderland 2” is expected to premier in 2015. And both “Into the Woods” and “Transcendence” are slated for release in 2014. No lie! I read it on


The Pomeranian Pirate

Last year, Johnny was tweeted in a pic alongside Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler (the classic rock guy who was on “American Idol”). The two held up a pair of tiny pups named Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid. When I saw it, I wanted to melt. I set it to the background on my owner’s laptop.

All of that plus the quote we started off with is why I’m a lifelong, tail-wagging Johnny Depp fan!
