Eddie Van Halen

I Own a Tiny Dog

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

3/6/2012 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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 ... 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 read that link you gave. That thing on is hilarious. Who would have thought that dog walkers were such big Van Halen fans?

I wonder if they like Aerosmith too. Those guys have a cool song called "Walkin' the Dog".

You could put this song on your iPod and have all kinds of fun walkin them dogs. :)

That was really sad. What does he say as he's being led into the right bus? "Ohhohohoh?" He has actually looked worse than he does now but he looks bloated like people get from psych meds. Maybe part of his alcoholism treatment?
I can see why readers are mad at this story. It's just a doofy guy being led around like he's helpless and that sound he makes in no way translates into the quote above the story.
Oh well. Fans should be glad he's smiling I guess. He's usually being bitter about a long list of people he holds grudges against.

I had those type of dogs (not at same time), and I just adored them. Proud owner. I know how you feel, Eddie. So sweet, so cute, but think they are all high mighty and can kick bigger dogs butts. Too funny! Those dogs could eat them up. Yeap, in one bite. LOL

Eddie, man, I love ya dude, but if you can whipe your own butt, you can pick up after your own dog too. Do you like to step in other peoples dog $#!^? Let's say the dog poops in your house and you are the only one there, will you leave the poop there for your cleaning woman to take care of when she gets there?

DUDE! Eddie isn't God, and I am not showing disrespect to him, and NO, I will not blow down and kiss his feet. Eddie is cute, and a loveable person. Eddie was a part of a good musical group (which I have seen in person btw), but he is no God.

For all the Eddie VH bashers: When Edward Van Halen passes away, he'll be remembered for being one of the greatest guitarists in Rock music history and collaborator of some of the finest records ever recorded. What will you be remembered for when you kick the bucket?
