Josh Groban Hits the Road With His Dog

Sweeney Todd, a Wheaten Terrier, enjoys the "suite” life with Groban.

Posted: June 25, 2008, 5 a.m. EDT

Josh Groban’s dog, Sweeney Todd, has a pretty good life at the singer’s Malibu home. But the Wheaten Terrier, who regularly travels with Groban, also has a pretty good life on the road.

“The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco takes the cake,” Groban told InStyle. “They had two bowls of treats ready and a giant dog bed. Sweeney jumped on it and was like, ‘Mine!’ They had a gourmet dog menu with fresh chicken and rice dishes. I thought, ‘Am I really going to pay $30 for room service for my dog?’ Then I said, ‘You know what? It’s not like a cat with nine lives.’ So yes, he was spoiled.”

Groban, whose last album, “Noël,” was the bestselling album of 2007 and broke a 50-year-old sales record held by Elvis Presley, also likes to take quick road trips with the 2-year-old dog just for fun.

“We took a drive to Carmel (Calif.), and Sweeney loved the beaches and the water,” says Groban, whose latest album is “Awake Live.” “We found a bench and just sat and looked out at the Pacific Ocean. It’s the most beautiful place in the world.”

Nothing like a Wheatie - whether you are alone or with a huge audience! These sweetie Wheatie's are always at our side. This only shows Josh's true soul - deep and wide and wonderful !

In deepest respect and admiration - Bon & Wyn the Wheaten !

This says a lot about Josh, doesn't it? He once referred to Sweeney as his best friend in the whole world! Is this man a love or what?! I have three "babies" and I love them the same way. Got to love a man who loves his dog!!
