George and Amal Clooney, highly acclaimed lovebirds, have adopted a cute dog. It's kind of weird because it seemed like they already had reached the maximum level of public adoration, and now they've gone and thrown an adorable pup into the mix. What will happen? Will they reach a certain point when people start liking them so much that it swings back around to hate? Should they let celebrities who need image rehabilitation do the bulk of the dog adopting? How deep is society's capacity to admire celebrities without honing in on some misstep and taking them down? Let's find out.

The Clooneys met Millie, a four-year-old Basset Hound mix, at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society after seeing her pic on Petfinder. According to the organization, George and Amal brought their other rescue dog, a cocker spaniel named Louie, to meet Millie. Everyone "hit it off" and then "the happy, new family headed home together." Here's a photo, which could also be used as the Clooney's holiday card this year.

Millie wears hip shades, just like her new mom Amal Clooney!

Hope these dogs realize how awesome their parents are.
