Correct! The critters that you'll see following characters around were summoned by Scrolls of Companion. They're used to summon limited duration animal pals that will help pick up gold for you.
waaay too "cutesy" for diablo...
But convenient. Personally, I haven't found that they detract from my experience. I mean, sure, there might be a snake following me for a couple minutes, but I'm still in a dark, filthy ruin, primarily populated by demons, undead and the mutilated corpses of townfolk.
