Hippie (formerly Graham Cracker)
James Kennedy has a Goldendoodle who is now named Hippie as of July 2023. Hippie was formerly known as Graham Cracker, when James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss got him as a couple in May 2018. When they broke up in January 2022, Leviss originally kept Graham. Then in July 2023, as a result of Leviss dealing with her mental health issues, Kennedy took ownership of Graham and renamed him Hippie. His name is a tribute to Kennedy’s late godfather George Michael’s dog of the same name.
