Chris Evans Loves His Dog So Damn Much And It's The Joy We Need Right Now

"Really missing this guy right now," Evans tweeted about his dog, Dodger.

Back in April, Evans told People about meeting Dodger. "He’s just such a sweetheart, he’s such a good boy," he said.

“One of the last scenes we were filming was in a pound, a kennel. I foolishly walked in and I thought, ‘Are these actor dogs or are these real up for adoption dogs?’ And sure enough they were, so I was walking up and down the aisles and saw this one dude and he didn’t belong there. I snagged him and he’s such a good dog. They aged him at about one, he acts like a puppy, he’s got the energy of a puppy, he’s just such a sweetheart, he’s such a good boy. He loves dogs, he loves kids, he’s full of love.”

Recently, though, Evans and Dodger have been separated.

'Excuse me, are u busy? Could I interest u in chasing squirrels with me outside? Or perhaps u could toss the frisbe…

Evans hasn't explicitly said why they're apart. He could be working on The Red Sea Diving Resort, which is reportedly filming in South Africa and Namibia. There's also that untitled Avengers sequel, which is reportedly filming in Atlanta. Or it could be none of the above. In any case, the two are separated and it's breaking my HEART.

And Evans has been publicly pining.


He's even been posting countdowns until their reunion. On Aug. 1, they were one month away from reuniting.

And as of Aug. 15, they've got 17 whole days left of being away from each other. 😭

If you doubt anything in this cruel world, never let it be that Chris Evans really fucking loves his dog.

In other non-depressing news, my dog is still a pure, brand new soul, enjoying nonverbal bonds of love + acceptance…

It's a love for the ages.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! From me and this desperate social climber.
