We’re already bored with the gowns. But you know what we never get tired of? Puppies. Here are some of the best mutt struts in the past year — plus a couple of more surprising critters for good measure.

 



1: Meet Kasey, who stars in the upcoming “Darling Companion” along with Diane Keaton.

 



2: No handler needed: Skateboarding pup Tillman is a red carpet-worthy star in his own right.

 



3: From what we can tell, no one has paraded a ferret down the runway since Paris Hilton did in 2005.

 



4: Is it just us, or does Salma Hayek look a little nervous at this “Puss in Boots” photocall?



5: Richard Belzer brought a good friend along to the Directors Guild of America Honors.



6: Betty White puckered up at the American Humane Association’s Hero Dog Award party.



7: “Tintin” star Jamie Bell gets a snuggle from a Snowy look-alike.
