It’s that time of the year again! The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017 is happening on November 28 in Shanghai and we’re pretty excited. We laymen don’t have the luxury of being a VS Angel and getting to walk the runway with millions of dollars worth of lingerie. We respect the Angels as they make big money showing off their amazing bodies that they work hard for.

Angels like Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo (Levine), Stella Maxwell, Bella Hadid, and many other models will be participating. To our surprise, Gigi Hadid announced on November 16 that she will not be going to this year’s show!

This year’s star piece is an 18 karat gold bra that is worth over $2 million (“cheaper” than last year’s which was worth $3 million)! Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro will be wearing the “Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra” in this year’s show!

As I was researching some of these models’ lives for their pet photos, I found myself admiring their lifestyles. What we think is an easy life on the surface is actually pretty hard. Yes, they may lie on beach floaties in pools, but a model’s life is no easy feat.

Many models like Miranda Kerr and Behati Prinsloo are mothers. Behati, married to Maroon 5’s lead singer Adam Levine, is pregnant with her second daughter and is still walking this year!

Angels don’t just relax and look pretty – they work hard like any other person with a career.

Models work hard in their job search for ads, commercials, fashion shows, you name it. They must have rigorous health and training routines to maintain their look, all the while keeping up with packed schedules. Now with ‘always on’ social media access, they also have a lot to keep up with.

But enough about the models, here is what you came to see – their pets!

1. Behati Prinsloo

Behati Prinsloo, who has walked nine(!) Victoria’s Secret Shows since 2007, had a sphinx kitty named Gollum. He unfortunately passed away, but Prinsloo remember hims in her #tbt photos.

Adam Levine and Behati adopted a Golden Doodle puppy in 2009 and named him bones! He received Bones as a present when his Golden Retriever Frankie passed away.

At one of his concerts, I believe, Adam sported a giant Bones head and called it “art”. If it has to do with his adorable pupper, we’d have to agree!

My strenuous detective work has denied me the name of the dog on the left, but it’s safe to say that Adam loves having dogs around. When Frankie Girl the Golden fell ill, Adam allegedly spent $50 000 USD on her health. He adopted Charlie the Golden in 2013! Behati and Adam will have their hands full with Dusty, the new baby girl and all these pets!

2. Adriana Lima

Brazilian model Adriana Lima has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 1999 and is absolutely gorgeous and doesn’t look her age at all!

She and her husband, Marko Jarić, have two daughters, Valentina and Sienna. Scrolling through her Instagram feed shows that the family don’t have any pets that they take photos with, but the children do enjoy horse riding!

3. Gigi Hadid

Although we just learned that Gigi isn’t participating this year, she’s still worth mentioning because she also has a love for pets.

She and her boyfriend Zayn of 1 Direction shared a love for her late cat named Chubs. Gigi remembers her cat and posts photos of them all together!

In another photo for her mother’s birthday, we see that the Hadids had a Golden Retriever growing up!

4. Bella Hadid

And that brings us to Gigi’s younger sister, Bella. The 21-year-old (yea, 21!!) model has been a model since 2014 and used to date The Weeknd! They’ve been seen together again lately but that’s another story.

The Hadids have ponies and horses and both girls competed in equestrian growing up. Their newest addition is baby Muku the pony who goes on strolls with Yolanda Hadid, the girls’ mother!

5. Gizele Oliveira

Brazilian model Gizele Oliveira has an adorable “Pomachon” named Bieber who she lives with in New York! He even has his own Instagram @bieberthedog!

6. Stella Maxwell

Stella Maxwell is the face of Victoria’s secret and is dating actress Kristen Stewart. Earlier this year, the couple rescued a puppy together named Trip.

Since Kristen doesn’t have social media, Stella took to her own social media to announce their new baby. With the #adoptdontshop message, her followers applauded their decision to rescue!

When you’re a model, mornings look like this and we think it’s not too shabby. My dream is to lounge with a dog in one hand and a book in the other while having food delivered to me!

7. Victoria Lee

Last, but not least, of our non-exhaustive list is the gorgeous Australian model Victoria Lee! This will be Victoria’s first VS show ever and she is expected to be the next Australian model superstar.

I found this little Puglet on her Instagram. I’m not sure if this Pug is hers, but she loves the cutie anyways!
