Petey has made multiple appearances in Legend-Teigen family footage lately. In a recent collaboration with Walmart, Legend showed a fun clip of Petey wearing some festive holiday glasses

"Petey, look into the camera! He just blends into the couch so well," Legend said. 

"PETEY IS A ⭐️," his wife, Chrissy Teigen, commented on the video. 

Then, on October 26, Legend shared snapshots of Teigen and their 7-year-old daughter Luna taking a nap with Petey. "Sleeping beauties," Legend captioned the post.

In 2020, Pearl the Basset Hound was welcomed to the Legend-Teigen family. Teigen announced the news by sharing the most adorable snapshot of the big-eared pooch. 

"Pearl has touched down into the legend/teigen/stephens household!" Chrissy wrote on Instagram. "We love this little girl so much already but I will admit, she has definitely taken to John first!! Penny is obsessed with her so it's been fun watching the adventures of penny and pearl unfold. I grew up with Basset Hounds so I can't wait for John to see this bouncy, no-bones, jello mold of skin grow into the stubborn logs of love I love so much. Excited for this new little heart to add love to our home. Swipe for ear magic!"
