Meet Laura Marano's Adorable Dog Velvet!

Laura Marano shows off her adorable pet pooch on the latest cover of Modern Dog magazine!

The 18-year-old actress opened up to the mag about her dog Velvet, her role on Austin & Ally, and more. Check it:

On playing Ally: The moment I learned I was down for the role of Ally, I was like: She’s ridiculously like me. Other than the stage fright she suffered from, which I never had, we are so alike. At the time, all I had seen was the breakdown of who she was. Then I read the script and saw that she was so like me. As the show has progressed, it’s gotten even more so.

On her dog: Her name is Velvet. She is a Keeshond. Keeshonds are kind of like a Siberian husky, a Chow Chow, and a German Shepherd all in one. She is so adorable and so insane all at the same time. She is actually very loud. She definitely talks. My favorite—and yet not favorite—thing about her is that when I play piano, when I am practicing, she always, always, always sings with me. Which you’d think is adorable—and sometimes it is. But really, she is very loud.

On the future: I see a few things. I won’t be able to do them all at the same time, but I will do them. Number one: I will continue my acting career. I can’t imagine my life without it. Number two: I will go to school. Both my parents are teachers, so it’s important to me. I just graduated from high school this year. My sister was home schooled—and she is the most intelligent, responsible, amazing person I know—but I knew for me I needed to go to regular school. And I know I want to get a degree. Even if I’m 37 years old when it happens. Number three: I want to continue to do as much charity work as possible. We are all very connected on a global level and by getting involved you feel a lot more fulfilled. And number four: I want to write songs and have a music career. I’ve wanted this forever, since I was a little girl.
