Lorelai adopted Paul Anka in season 6, while she and daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) were on the outs. Her ever-fastidious canine pal, who was on the series through its final seventh season, had a countless list of quirks, including a predilection for sweet-tasting feet, refusing to play with regular dog toys, not liking when people watch him eat and fearing such non-frightening items as CDs, lint and peas. (OK, we’ll give him that last one — why are they so green and mushy?)
