Kirk Hammett has a dog named Tippy. He mentioned him in an interview but no photos were ever captured of Kirk and Tippy. In a shocking interview with British magazine Q, we learned Kirk watched in horror as he watched his dog have sex with a neighbor: “I went to my neighbor’s. The guy took down his pants and started having sex with the dog! I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. When he got up, I just took the dog and left. She was still wagging her tail.”
