Who is Queenie? Those were my thoughts exactly. Queenie is the cute dog Rob worked with while filming “Water for Elephants”. Queenie’s trainer, Omar Von Muller, says Rob definitely bonded with the pup. Just another example to show how Rob is such an animal person!
Uggie even won a “Palm Dog” — a riff on Cannes’ top prize, the Palme d’Or — at the festival for The Artist. Animal- and gossip-related blogs claimed that Water for Elephants star Robert Pattinson was so taken with his canine colleague that he asked to adopt Uggie upon completion of filming.
“That didn’t really happen,” Von Muller says with a laugh. “But he did really bond with him.”
