Remember back in January, when Chrissy Teigen and John Legend got a new puppy, Petey, and Luna and Miles were immediately and very understandably obsessed? And remember when Teigen explained that Petey was a caramel standard poodle, adopted by the family from the Wagmor Pet Hotel & Spa after he was abandoned alongside his whole family? And remember how Teigen remarked on the size of Petey's father, tweeting, "if he’s anything like his dad, he will be the biggest caramel Gumby ever seen"? Well, that was a very prescient tweet, because Teigen just posted a video of Luna attempting to carry Petey a mere month-and-a-bit later, and he's already approximately three times the size. Enjoy:

I'd strongly advise you to watch until the end of the video, and take a moment to absorb Petey's giant eyes gazing at the camera as he wags his tiny little tail. That mini wag has completed my Tuesday and soothed my soul!

Yesterday, she confirmed Peanut Butter was very much living in luxury, sporting the finest couture:
