All About Adele's Louie
Singer Adele speaks candidly to PEOPLEPets about her beloved red smooth Dachshund 'Louie.' Thank the good lord above she didn't name him Britney! She says: Adele, 22, tells PEOPLEPets.com that her first choice for the male pup's moniker was Britney. "He was born on the night I went to see Britney Spears at the O2 in London," she reveals in the clip above. "I almost called him Britney even though he was a boy. [But] it only lasted a few hours until my hangover stopped."
Other options included Aaron Lennon, one of the singer's favorite soccer stars, but once the pooch started howling along to a Louis Armstrong record, Adele knew she had to name him Louie — with an "e." Next year, she plans to get a second dog and name her Ella, after the jazz star Fitzgerald.
Louie, who has lots of four-legged "mates," has had many adventures in his 19 months of life. Recently, he was attacked by a Jack Russell terrier in the park across from Adele's home, and ever since, refuses to revisit the grassy spot. "I bought a house right opposite a park … for him to go for a walk in every day," she laments.
