Today we mourn the death of Lucky Diamond, a celebrity pooch who belonged to Animal Fair magazine founder and animal advocate Wendy Diamond.The Maltese was terminally ill for some time and died before her upcoming nuptials this summer, which would have cost an estimated $140,000 and was slated to become the most expensive dog wedding of all time.

We decided to honour Lucky in our own way by remembering some of the most outrageously pampered pets in history. 

Karl Lagerfeld's Siamese cat can use an iPad, sleeps on a pillow, and has two personal maids.

While Karl Lagerfeld was cat-sitting for model Baptiste Giabiconi, he fell in love with Choupette, a white Siamese cat, and refused to give the feline back, according to a recent interview in Women's Wear Daily.

Choupette is not only spoiled, but smart: She can use an iPad. She's also got two maids, who track her every move in a diary when Lagerfeld is out of town.

Tommasino the cat is worth $15.6 million, but enjoys milk in a saucer and biscuits.

Among the most humble of the pampered pets is Tommasino, the Italian cat who belonged to the late Maria Assunta.

Tommasino, a black stray cat whom Assunta rescued, inherited her entire $15.6 million estate upon her death.

The sum makes Tommasino only the third richest pet in the world. He's reportedly a humble feline who enjoys milks and biscuits.

Max, George Clooney's late 300-pound pig, used to sleep in bed with his owner.

Max Clooney, a 300-pound pig, lived a good life for 18 years, until he died in 2006.

He seems to have been owner George Clooney's longest relationship and even shared a bed with the former ER star and tagged along to interviews.

The late Maltese Trouble had a limo, ate fresh chicken, and wore a diamond dog collar.

Trouble, the Maltese that died last June, was a rich and spoiled pooch.

The dog belonged to the late hotel heiress Leona Helmsley, who left her beloved four-legged friend $12 million upon her death.

Trouble led a charmed life that most humans couldn't afford.

To keep Trouble pretty, $8,000 a year went toward the dog's grooming. She also had a full-time body guard, and $1,200 was spent on the dog's food a year.

Paris Hilton's beloved teacup Chihuahua is a published author.

Paris Hilton loves Tinkerbell, her teacup Chihuahua, so much that when the pooch went missing in 2004 Hilton offered a $5,000 award. The dog went missing for about a week before it was returned.

When not worrying her owner, the dog 'ghost wrote' The Tinkerbell Hilton Diaries: My Life Tailing Paris Hilton.

She's also known for wearing pink Chanel sweaters, Louis Vuitton puppy slippers, and being carried around in Hilton's purse.

Gunther IV, the world's richest dog, purchased a villa from Madonna for more than $3 million.

Gunther IV, a German Shepard, is worth nearly $140 million, making him the world's richest dog.

Gunther has expensive tastes: he bought a villa from Madonna (well, technically, a group bought it on his behalf), owns properties in Italy, Germany, and the Bahamas, and purchased a rare white truffle for $1,500.

Tina and Kate, two Collie Crosses, have the run of their late owner's home.

Tina and Kate, two Collie Crosses, have the run of a home that sits on five acres of land in Peasedown, St John.

When Nora Hardwell died right before her 90th birthday, she ensured her two dogs would have full-access to the home they grew up in.

She allotted nearly $700,000 to care for the pets, along with a carer, and a stipulation that the house must be kept clean at all times.

Bo, the First Dog, has an official White House Portrait.

Bo, a Portuguese Water Dog, was given as a gift to The Obamas shortly after the President took office by the late senator Ted Kennedy.

He's been photographed running down hallways with the President, and his official White House portrait appears on a baseball card.

Bo's favourite food is tomatoes and he does not know how to swim.
