Everyone strap on a party hat and dive head-first into a giant funfetti cake, because it's time to celebrate good times! By which we mean the 8th birthday of Ricki Hendrick (aka Ricki Bobby) the adorable love child of Bachelorette Season 8's Emily Maynard.

Ricki's birthday isn't until June 29, but this little lady's West Virginia Mountain Mama treated her to an early B-day present... a terrifyingly small animal!

"Rickis Birthday Surprise!" Em posted to Instagram along with a picture of Ricki and her pal with paws. "The newest addition to our zoo."

Ok, so we think this might be a dog, but honestly who knows? The only thing we're sure about is that this wayward creature has a bunch of balloons tied to its back, and it might float off into outer space at any moment.

Whatever, Ricki's tiny dog is all kinds of cute, but is anyone else worried that it will get eaten by one of Emily's ferocious cats? We've all seen the pictures... those felines look unhinged, y'all.

In other news, be sure to wish The Rickster a happy birthday on Twitter, and feel free to eat a couple hundred celebratory cupcakes in her honor.
