Selena Gomez has been through a lot this summer. After stepping away from the limelight, the singer took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal that she had needed time off because she required a kidney transplant. (The operation was a result of her battle with Lupus.) After emotionally thanking her kidney donor—her best friend Francia Raisa—Selena detailed both her medical struggles and recent progress. "I am incredibly blessed," she wrote.
And now we see she is doubly blessed! On Friday, Selena was photographed stepping out with a new King Charles Cavalier spaniel puppy snuggled into the chest of a fluffy red hoodie, and man alive is he cute! We daresay he looks like the perfect post-op cuddling partner! (Along with Selena's boyfriend The Weeknd, of course!)

Although there is no official additional information on the puppy, fans are theorizing that the puppy belongs to both Selena and The Weeknd. Earlier this week, the producer-songwriter posted an Instagram Story of a very similar-looking pupper who was snacking on his shoes, along with the caption "not the kicks fam."
The Story screengrab above was posted by a The Weeknd fan account, and suggests that the pupper's name was revealed to be Charlie (aww!). The pup in question also appears to be the very same one that Selena and The Weeknd were caught snuggling at a pet store in NYC a few weeks ago:
Congratulations to Selena and The Weeknd on their new fluffy puddle of joy!
