Britney Spears Keeping Dog As Stand-In For Baby?

December 10, 2004 By Jordan Miller

The pop diva turned up at the 2004 Billboard Music Awards here on Wednesday not just with husband Kevin Federline, but also with a very small dog.

Spears, who has just had her 23rd birthday, has made no secret on her website of her enthusiasm to have a baby, so perhaps the pooch is a substitute for the time being.

Meanwhile, The Sun reported that she celebrated her birthday at the five-star Bacara Spa in Santa Barbara, California.

The paper said she and Federline, 26, hung a Do Not Disturb sign on the door of the presidential suite and came out only once in 48 hours.
