The 'Dancing with the Stars' co-host, who lost both her dogs on the same day in 2019, shared several posts gushing over her new puppy
Julianne Hough is a dog mom once again, and she can't stop gushing!
The Dancing with the Stars co-host, 35, welcomed her new puppy Sunny to the world via Instagram Thursday. She shared a clip of herself scooping up Sunny from a large floor rug and swinging her around in a living room as Taylor Swift's 2020 song "August" played in the background,
"Say hello to little miss Sunny girl ☀️🤍," she captioned the clip.
The Dirty Grandpa actress continued to burst with love for her new golden girl over on her Instagram Story, sharing another clip captioned, "Now that Sunny ☀️ has made her media debut.... Get ready to be inundated with perfect content."
As Hough filmed Sunny cradled in her arms, she whispered to her, "You're perfect."
"I love you. I love you so much," Hough continued, which Sunny seemed to take as her cue to start licking her new human mother all over her face.
"You are my sunshine, my little Sunny girl," Hough told Sunny as the puppy continued her licks before letting out a big puppy yawn and burying her face under Hough's arm.
Some of Hough's fans speculated over what breed of dog Sunny might be in response to her first post about her new pet.
"Sunny looks like doxie," wrote one fan, using a colloquial name for a dachshund, while another answered, "[Sunny] looks like a Ruby cavalier King Charles spaniel, which is the type of dog she had in the past."
Hough's two Cavalier King Charles spaniels Lexi and Harley both died on Sept. 28, 2019. The star announced the news on Instagram, thanking her “babies, [her] daughters” for providing her with so much love over the years.
“Pure love is real, it existed through us. My heart expanded and felt the truth of what is possible. I am forever grateful,” Hough captioned a series of photos and videos of her beloved pets.
