This week, 19-year-old Sofia Richie shared an Instagram snap of herself cuddled up to 34-year-old boyfriend Scott Disick on the steps of a plane. Although the picture was innocent enough, she made one fatal error by using the caption, “Spring break with my [heart].” Naturally, the Internet lost its collective mind and made a million jokes about their 15-year-age gap. (She eventually changed the caption to simply read, “My [heart].”)
But honestly, the joke is on all of us, because the couple was boarding a private jet (jealous!) to Cabo, Mexico (double jealous!!), and they brought along a most special guest: Sofia’s new puppy, a mind-bendingly cute Dachshund named Hershela (quadruple jealous!!!!).
The couple shared multiple shots of Hershela enjoying that lux, private-plane life that few of us lowly humans without celebrity BFFs or parents will ever experience. “First time flyer!” Scott and Sofia wrote on their respective Instagram stories.
The insanely adorable puppy was a gift from Scott to Sofia, who is a self-described Dachshund fanatic. “I am obsessed with wiener dogs,” she told PEOPLE, “so I’ve just been sitting at home staring at her all day like a psychopath.” (Who wouldn’t, with a puppy as cute as Hersh?!) Sofia explained the unique moniker to PEOPLE: “My boyfriend named her … I kind of just ran with it. It made me laugh. I liked Hershey and he liked Hershela, so it was like a middle ground.” (We’re not sure she knows the meaning of “middle ground” but we like the name anyway.)
Here’s to wishing the trio a very happy spring break! Err … vacation.
