Hollywood’s third favorite Chris—Chris Evans—sent Twitter into an absolute tailspin while tweeting about his dog, Dodger. If you missed this saga (and if so, lucky you, it saved you some dog-related tears), worry not, Dodger is 100% fine, despite what the tweet may or may not have implied. The tweet in question states that Chris is really missing his dog, coupled with a picture of sleepy Dodger, snuggled up next to him.
Despite the fact that "missing this guy" does not directly translate to death, rumors began to spiral. In fact, the hubbub was so widespread that Chris has to hop back on Twitter to clarify that he was missing his dog only because he was traveling for work for awhile, and that Dodger was A-OK.
But it was too late. The internet, best known for its rapid-fire escalation and conclusion jumping, had already assumed the worst and instantly began mourning dearly (not) departed Dodger. Condolences were pouring in from devastated fans, including a very worried Seth Rogen.
While, we (and Seth Rogen, we're sure) are super relieved, it did leave us with the thought of “Oh WTF Chris, be more careful next time! You can’t do that to us!” We love Dodger, especially knowing his backstory.
Dodger is a rescue that Chris adopted while filming the movie Gifted (costarring fellow dog enthusiast Jenny Slate). He told People, “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.”
Actor dogs?! Bless him. Chris and Dodger’s meet-cute really cemented these two in our hearts, especially after the emotional roller coaster Chris accidentally put us through. Let us calm ourselves by zenning out to some cute pics of this dynamic duo bonding.
