Thursday, 14th April 2011

Shirley Maclaine's pooch may well have a luxury dog bed as the actress has revealed her four-legged-friend is the love of her life.

She explained that she has never found companionship with anyone like what she shares with her dog, despite spending 28 years of her life married.

Maclaine told the Daily Mail: "My dog Terry is the love of my life. I have never known friendship and companionship like it.

"We go for a long walk together every day, travel in cars and planes together (she has her own seat), and when I'm working she waits for me in my trailer."

The 76 year old added that her love for her pooch brings her to tears because she now understands that she is capable of unconditional love.

Maclaine is best known for her role in Terms of Endearment for which she won an Academy Award for Best Actress.
