She often posts videos and photos featuring the sweet canines, and we have no doubt that Lord Chesterfield will follow in their footsteps and become a doggy celebrity in his own right!

She even shared that she chose to remember one of her late dogs in a very special way – with a tattoo.

Jennifer said: "I had a dog, Norman, who was so lovely and was my best friend for many years. When he went at the age of 15 I was heartbroken and I had his name tattooed on my right foot, so he still comes for walks with me."
