The actor Chris Pine adopted a sweet little pittie from the North Central Shelter in Los Angeles.

And they’re really, really, really cute together:

Here they are again, being all snuggly wuggly and adorable:

Hey, maybe the mayor of Montreal will see Pine and pup’s pics, and have a sudden realization that he’s barking up the totally wrong tree with this whole plan to ban pits from the city.

Anyway, it seems worth putting that idea out there while some of our other fantasies are coming true.
