After Jennifer Aniston lost her dog Norman, she got a tattoo of his name on her ankle. Presumably, that means the pup, while no longer alive, can be with her in spirit everywhere she goes.

While Norman was the only one to get permanently inked into the star’s skin, her other dogs who have passed hold a special place in her home.

Aniston tells GQ in their March issue, “We have one white shepherd [Dolly], but I had another dog [Norman] who died last year. We actually have three dead dogs on our mantel right now. The whole mantel is dead dogs. Their ashes. It’s kind of morbid.”

Paul Rudd quipped that to be really morbid, she would have had them stuffed and put on her mantel.

The actress adopted a new dog back in December from Best Friends Animal Society. People is reporting that the dog is a rescued pit bull-boxer mix named Sophie. We can’t think of a better home for the gal.
