To say that Lea Michele’s (Rachel) life has been difficult lately would be an understatement. A huge one. The Glee star’s longtime love Cory Monteith (Finn) passed away suddenly this July, and though Lea’s been trying to return to life as normal, it seems clear that her world won’t ever truly be the same.

So far, the Glee actress has been leaning on friends and family during this difficult time. Now, Lea has found someone new to turn to for comfort: an adorable little dog named Pearl!

On October 15 — three months and two day’s after Cory’s death — Lea took to Twitter to introduce her furry new friend. “Today I would like to introduce you to Pearl. She's 8 years old and is my new little love.. Welcome Pearl!” she wrote.

Pearl looks to be a Pomeranian, and she’s so tiny and cute, we find it hard to believe she’s a full eight years old already! Doesn’t that little face look just like that of a puppy? Either way, we’re pretty much overwhelmed by her cuteness. Who wouldn’t want to stare into that adorable little mug all day?

One thing to note, though. Lea is already the proud mama of Sheila, a brown and black spotted kitty that she found on the Glee set a few years back. We know dog and cats don’t always get along so let’s Sheila is getting along well with the new member of the family.

We already know Sheila loves to cuddle with Lea. Now Pearl can join in for the cozy, snuggly fun!
