Sure, they play blood-sucking, occasionally heart-ripping vampires on the small screen, but we swear the cast of The Vampire Diaries trying to destroy some real-life hearts too — namely, ours.


First, Ian Somerhalder gets hilariously snuggly with Grumpy Cat, and now Nina Dobrev is getting in on the fun with some adorable puppy action.


Did you hear that? It was our hearts bursting. Nina recently posted an old photo of herself getting face to face with an itty bitty dachshund, and it’s just too cute for words.


Well, except these words: “Throwback Thursday- summer of 2009: smooching a puppy.” Nina captioned the pic. “I think I caught him off guard, his expression says it all haha”


Now that you mention it, Nina, the pup does look a tiny bit shocked, but can you blame him? After all, this little pooch is getting a surprise smooch from a bona fide TV beauty — we’d be surprised too!
