Eva Longoria's dog Jinxie will follow her down the aisle when she marries basketball star Tony Parker.
The 'Desperate Housewives' star's beloved white Maltese dog will follow the bride and remain at heel at the altar while the couple exchange their vows in France this summer.
A source told National Enquirer magazine: "Jinxie is getting a special jewel-encrusted designer collar made for the big day. It will be inscribed with the lucky wedding date - 7/7/07."
The Texan beauty loves lavishing her pet with luxury pampering, spending an astonishing $500 a month on grooming, pedicures and teeth cleaning.
Eva and Tony are set to marry at an exclusive location just outside Paris - and chose July 7 because they believe it to be a lucky day to wed.
The San Antonio Spurs player surprised Eva last December by flying to her Los Angeles home unannounced and getting down on one keen to pop the question.
Eva said the way Tony proposed was "perfect, personal and sweet".
The 32-year-old is reportedly determined to not to let the cost of the nuptials spiral out of control and has enlisted the services of celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss to make sure everything for the big day is done within a budget.
Eva reportedly told Weiss: "We are building a house right now in San Antonio, so we just can't go over budget."
