After being denied a puppy last week, it looked as though Suri Cruise’s luck had changed when she was spotted out with mum Katie Holmes.
The celebrity tot was photographed cuddling what appeared to be a puppy after all. But in fact, it was the next best thing – a Steiff cuddly Leilou pug.
Suri’s new puppy pal seems to be the best possible replacement for the real thing, expecially after Suri's disappointment in a pet shop last week. Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise were seen visiting a New York pet store on Saturday, where Suri fell in love with an adorable white Yorkshire Terrier puppy.
But surprisingly, Suri and Katie left the pet shop empty-handed, despite Suri’s best pouting and sulking.
Perhaps Katie Holmes decided that getting a real dog would be too much like hard work, now that she’s a single mum. But little Suri seemed to be quite content with her new doggy pal. After all, dogs really are a girl's best friend!
