Hollywood funnyman Robin Williams has a "gay" dog named Leonard and he says the dog has a boyfriend.

The 60-year-old actor and his wife Susan Schneider currently live in Tiburon, a town on the outskirts of San Francisco and the 'Happy Feet 2' star loves spending time outside of his home with his pet, reported The Telegraph.

"I also have a gay rescue pug called Leonard, who I take for walks because I am very secure in my sexuality. He has a boyfriend and they are planning to adopt a Siamese kitten together.

We're very modern," Williams said. "I've done the ranch thing, now I'm doing the water thing where I go kayaking and paddleboarding and take to the woods for hours on my bike. It's my thinking time and very therapeutic," he added.

Williams, who has sons Zachary, 28, and Cody, 19, and daughter Zelda, 22, from his previous marriages, longs to have grandchildren and says he plans to be a sweet and forgetful grandparent. "I plan on being a sweet, forgetful, 'Oh God, where's the baby? What have I done with the baby?' sort of grandfather.

I love kids but they are a tough audience. When I used to read to Zelda in thrilling accents and act out the stories, she would sigh and tell me to give it a rest and read in a normal voice," he said.
