Actor Orlando Bloom may be married to a supermodel, but before he met Miranda Kerr his heart belonged to a dark, good-looking guy: his rescue dog Sidi.

Bloom adopted the black Saluki mix while filming Kingdom of Heaven in Africa, and the dog has been his constant companion ever since.

“I rescued this man in Morocco about seven years ago now. He has been everywhere with me,” said Bloom. In honor of their meeting place,  he even gave the dog a Moroccan name — according to Bloom, Sidi means “lord” in a Moroccan dialect.

The actor isn’t kidding about bringing Sidi everywhere he goes. Bloom, who appears on the cover of the October issue of Men’s Health, even brought Sidi along to the photo shoot. “I knew we were at a ranch today so I brought him out. Thanks for having him, too,” he told the magazine.

Caring for Sidi was great parenting practice for Bloom, who welcomed a son, Flynn, with Kerr in January. The baby’s arrival has caused Bloom to reevaluate his daredevil lifestyle — slightly.

“I want to do things that terrify me, unless they’re going to kill me,” he said. “Since I’ve had a son, I want to be around to see him grow up.”

Sidi’s not the only dog lucky enough to live in the ever-expanding Bloom/Kerr household; model Miranda also has a Yorkie named Frankie. Who knows, maybe baby Flynn will get his own pooch soon?
