If you have ever watched the video of the golden retriever eating corn on the cob that went viral this summer, or the many other videos posted on her YouTube channel than you are familiar with Coco Chan.

Here are 20 celebrities who are currently, to the best of my research, sharing their lives with a golden retriever or two. Warning: This list may include reality television stars.

1. Oprah Winfrey has two golden retrievers, Luca and Gracie. (as well as a few more four legged friends)…YOU get a treat, and YOU get a treat, and YOU get a treat..

2.  Adam Levine Maroon Five front man and judge on “The Voice”  (who was also most recently voted “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine) lost his last golden retriever “Frankie Girl” last year.

Peaches Geldof and her Golden Retriever “Parpy”

Yesterday I was shocked when I heard the news that Peaches Geldof-Cohen had died at the age of 25.  Just last month she appeared on a show called “Top Dog” with her golden retriever “Parpy”.  Peaches was the middle daughter of musician Bob Geldof, and a model and writer.

I followed her on Instagram and loved seeing photos of her and her boys, and her other dog Bogwot, a Newfoundland.

As of this evening, her Instagram account appears to have been deleted. No cause of death has been determined.

Roy Dyer of the Essex Dog Display team had worked with Peaches and Parper just last month and said “She thought the world of her dog Parper, she would talk about how he loved running around at home and in her garden.”

Peaches had a golden retriever named “Flossie” as a child.  She explained to her Instagram followers:
We had a golden retriever growing up her name was Flossie that’s how I knew they were so good with kids apart from all the hype about it anyway
