Inara is the best companion, but Rose Tyler and Amy Pond ain't bad either. ;-)
You can give an animal companion the Light Armor Proficiency feat and you can give it a +5 chain shirt barding and improve its AC by 9.
Mostly out of habit. :-P My 3.5 elf druid had a wardog animal companion came with Light Armor Proficiency from the war-trained feature. And we kind of assumed (I know, I know....) that since druids cannot wear metal armor, their animal companions couldn't wear metal armor. Well, I know my druid wasn't going to spend metal coins for metal armor.... My dog wore leather scale armor (base AC +3) in 3.5. Maybe I upgraded it to darkwood ironwood breastplate at higher levels.
