    Here at the R29 office, bring-your-dog-to-work day is pretty much every day. We're late for meetings because we stop to pet cute pooches on the street, and we genuinely ooh and ahhh at the seemingly endless albums of puppy pics on our UPS guy's iPhone. But our obsessive doggy affections can never, ever compare to the love famed pet designer, Ada Nieves, has for her five chihuahuas. The fab five are always decked out in pearls, Swarovski crystals, and red carpet gowns, all handcrafted by Ada herself. Not only do Nieves' dogs (Vanilla, Tabasco, Mojito, Margarita, and Kahlua) sport their owner's mommy's designs, they also star in campaigns for a variety of acclaimed, ahem, human designers, like Ralph Lauren, Cole Haan, and Reebok. Oh, and one of her pups even had her own wedding, which we're sure had enough glamour to rival Kim Kardashian's big day. So, back off Lassie, Toto, Bruiser (and, yes, even Jiggy!) — you've got nothing on this quintet of cute.

    Click through to see the craziest puppy couture and a peek into the life of celebrity dogs.

Take A Break With This Dreamy Destination Wedding

Sometimes wedding plans change — one moment there's a plan to have a shindig in the state, and the next, there's a Positano, Italy wedding in the works. We wouldn’t expect anything less from these two, though. Shelli and Chris are self-declared traveling fools, and we love them for that. If not for them, and the read
