Sofia Richie can’t get enough of her precious new puppy! The 19-year-old model’s new pet made its social media debut on Friday, and unsurprisingly Richie couldn’t stop gushing about how her puppy was “so cute.” Sharing a sweet video of herself spending some quality time with her new furry friend, Richie got her pooch to flash the camera a dopey look while it was cuddled up against her chest. “Aww babe,” she remarked, before giving her pet a sweet smooch. “You’re so cute,” she added, writing alongside the snap, “Our newest family member.” Later she also shared an adorable video of her puppy having a little snack — on her earlobes! “Ow,” she remarked, while her puppy was busy gently gnawing on her earrings. But after enough times of telling her dog to “let go,” it looked like her puppy final
Sure, human affection is nice, but nothing quite beats the love of a loyal, furry companion. Taye Diggs understands that deep down all of us want a dog as our Valentine. But before you run out and adopt a puppy as a Valentine’s Day present, Diggs wants to make sure you are ready first.
