Glee’s Blake Jenner (Ryder) is happily dating his longtime girlfriend, Maria, but there’s another lady in his life who is very special to Blake, as well — his pet teacup Maltipoo, Milli.

On October 20, Maria posted this adorable photo of her man cuddling with the couple’s precious pup. “Spoiling Milli” she wrote, in turn spoiling us with this adorable pic of Blake almost shirtless.

Blake’s first Glee episode, Season 4, Episode 5: “The Role You Were Born to Play,” airs on November 8. He’ll be playing a new McKinley football jock named Ryder, and fans can expect Ryder to form a fast friendship with Finn (Cory Monteith).

If you haven’t seen Blake and Cory in their hilarious new behind-the-scenes video, we suggest that you drop everything and watch it. Right now. Trust us: you won’t be sorry.
