Here is the trick to getting adopted by the world's most beautiful and accomplished couple: Be a stupid-cute basset hound named Millie. People reports that Amal and George Clooney have just adopted the 4-year-old dog from a California humane society, before which she was homeless and "hoping for food scraps outside of a local restaurant in San Gabriel." Millie will now get to live in the same house as Amal Clooney and have a better life than you and everyone you know.
After spotting her picture on Petfinder, the couple introduced Millie to their other rescue dog, a cocker spaniel named Louie. The two dogs reportedly "hit it off," which is probably pretty easy when the stakes are such that you can either a) not live with Amal Clooney, or b) live with Amal Clooney.
