Eddie Van Halen

I Own a Tiny Dog

... and I'm DAMN Proud Of It!

Eddie van Halen says he's NOT ASHAMED by his fragile, cutesy-wootsy little pomeranian doggie ... despite his macho rock-god image ... telling TMZ he loves the little guy, no matter what other people think.

EVH was out in NYC last night ... cradling his poochie Kody on the way from his hotel to a waiting tour bus. The footage shocked some of the people in our newsroom who expected the rocker to own something a little less ...um ... Paris Hiltony.

But sources close to the dog tell TMZ ... Eddie has a strong bond with Kody ... and takes great care of his pet ... walking him, feeding and loving him every day.

Still, we're told Eddie has one rule -- he won't pick up the dog crap. He is a rock n' roll god after all.

I have never thought of Eddie as being particularly "macho". He was a skinny little long-haired guitar player. Does that scream masculinity? No.

This is a nice story about someone who loves his dog--some of you people need to get a life.

Oh my ... my husband can hear someone flip him off from a mile away and never saw a fight he didn't want to join yet we've spent thousands safety proofing our home so his cat can't get out and get hurt. The other day he said the only dog he'd allow in our home is "one of those little dogs that smile"; a Pomeranian. Go figure.

Read Sammy's book. Eddie doesn't pick up after his dog, and neither does anyone else. Yuck.

Who picks up after the dog? He just leaves the poop there? That's gross and pathetic. No serious dog lover would do that.

I didn't hear him say he doesn't clean up after his dog. TMZ says, "we're told Eddie doesn't pick up the dog crap." Who told you that? Don't just start making up things to incite the readers. If I don't hear it from the accused, then it is not believable.

Just saw him and the band in Chicago. They put on a hell of a show. All these years later, they're still kicking ass. Thats what I care about, not how small his dog is.

I'm suprised only one other commenter caught this mistake. The band was in Philadephia yesterday so how could Ed have been in NYC?

Saw this story on VHlinks.com and all I can say is anyone who follows TMZ is pathetic. And yeah "tool", EVH is THE Rock God.

What a jerkstore. Cleaning up after your dog comes with the privilege of having a dog. Delegating that task to someone else is just elitist stupidity - and that's giving him the benefit of the doubt that he has someone doing that job, rather than leaving it for the rest of the world. And by the way, Eddie, Kody couldn't less if you're a 'rock god' or not, so just take care of him in a responsible manner.
