“My dog died,” he said. “My dog Einstein. I had to put him to sleep. He had a rough time. He was an old Cocker Spaniel. I’ve had him for a long time and he was a rescue and we had to get him home.” Clooney adopted Einstein in 2010 from the Los Angeles–based Camp Cocker Rescue after seeing a photo of the dog on the Internet. He used meatballs to win over the pup at their first meeting and they starred together in a series of Omega watch ads in 2015.
