Alert the media! Mark Salling and Lea Michele are totally smitten. And though their affections are directed at the same object, this aint no awkward love triangle situation a la Santana-Brittany-Artie in Glee Season 2.

Yesterday, Mark introduced the (Twitter) world to his pup, Noah Saw Salling (yes, just like his Glee character), calling him “[t]he new love of my life”:

It’s like a battle of cuteness. (Sorry, Mark, the hound wins this round.) Speaking of battles, Lea laid claim to the new addition to the Glee family, as well,  tweeting:

Uh oh. Do we smell a new rivalry on set? All this attention little Noah is getting could wreak havoc on Lord Tubbington’s self-esteem. But if Chord Overstreet can find a new gig, we’re sure the feline Glee star will land on his feet, too. Meow!
