Deena Nicole introduced the world to her and her boyfriend Chris's new puppy yesterday (October 22), posting adorable photos on Twitter of the teeny Toy Yorkie named Cali. As for how she came up with the little furball's name?

"I named my new puppy after my mom .. Her maiden name is Cali .. #coolfact that was supposed to be my name lol." Cali Cortese does have a nice ring to it!

Plus, the only thing more adorable than the doggie's face is the fact that Deena named her after her mom. What a good daughter!

What do you think of the name Cali? Do you love it, or would you have chosen something else? Let us know in the buttons below.
