Kelly Clarkson’s North American tour has gone to the dogs – specifically, her dogs.
The singer didn’t need the daily workouts she put herself through at the Hotel Monaco in Seattle as her canine traveling companions, Security the Maltese, and Joplin, a black poodle, were spotted putting their owner through her paces.
“When she came through the lobby the two little pups were like sled dogs pulling her towards the elevators,” an onlooker says. “Clarkson couldn’t stop smiling but it was a question of who was walking who.” – Reagan Alexander
