National Pet Day was April 11 but every pet owner knows that every day is National Pet Day, because we would do anything and everything for them. And they know it too, the little buggers. They own us. And we’ve accepted it, because one look at their adorable little faces and the white flag goes up. Treats? Cuddles? Snuggles? They’re about to get served.
Just ask Dodger.
I mean….c’mon, dude. If you keep it up you’re just gonna get tackled. pic.twitter.com/1adKM7DUKr

Chris Evans is one of millions of pet owners who posted about their pet this week, but this particular post might be just the thing you need to get you through a dark day. Chris is Dodger’s proud owner and has tweeted all kinds of videos and photos of the pooch in the past. But the newest clip is notable because it’s the moment Chris first met the rescue dog.
This is the moment we met. He was trying so hard to stay seated even though he desperately wanted to get out. I knew right away that he was coming home with me, so I took this video to always remember our first hello. Rescue dogs are the best dogs!! #NationalPetDay pic.twitter.com/XjWxPWGDPu

ER. MER. GERD. When you know, you just know. And it’s hard to tell who knew first — Chris or Dodger. And which one’s luckier — Chris or Dodger. Pfft. Please. It’s Chris. Obviously. Though that happy tail wag when Evans approaches his cage might be the sweetest thing ever. Maybe not as good as when Dodger greeted his dad after Chris was away for a lengthy shoot.

Again, we still think Chris is the lucky one in this situation. Sure, many fantasize about jumping all over Evans and smothering him with kisses, the sheer joy Dodger exhibits is infectious. If we did a poll asking who would you prefer kisses from, Chris or Dodger, Dodger would win by a landslide.
The dangers of playing with your food.
One more week.

Maybe the loveliest dog ever.

Plus, any dog that can sing is a dog that deserves all the love. We’re not worthy.
This is Dodger’s stuffed lion. He loves it. He brings it everywhere. If you press it’s paw, it sings. Today, Dodger decided to join in. pic.twitter.com/CuH53VNVtF

Thank you, Dodger, for giving us life. And thank you, Chris, for giving us Dodger.
