Fisher's dog is kind of famous in his own right. The 4-year-old French bulldog named Gary went with Fisher pretty much everywhere she went, even to interviews and events.

He was right by her side on her flight from London to LA when she suffered her heart attack, and sources say he even visited her at the UCLA medical center while she was there.
