We had a guy in my old college gaming group who played a "Walking Slab o' Muscle" known as Thrud the Barbarian (named after an old White Dwarf cartoon). Thrud carried around toy poodle that he affectionately called "Splat," mostly because Splat was a normal poodle, except for immortality-level regeneration.
The running gag was that Splat was actually the Supreme Mentalist of the Planet Earth (we didn't have a Sorcerer Supreme, but we did have Dr. Braintrust, M.D., Ph.D., SMPE), and Thrud was the special effect of his telekinesis.
