Kate Upton gave Justin Verlander puppy dog eyes in a recent pic, but even that wasn't enough to convince him to adopt the puppy seen with her in it.
On Tuesday, the supermodel Instagrammed a photo of herself with an adorable dog and tagged her athlete boyfriend, writing, "Pleaseeeee @justinverlander."
The Detroit Tigers' pitching ace responded by Instagramming a picture of his current mutt, writing: "@kateupton If anyone objects raise your hand!"
"#RileyObjects #jealous #RileyWins."
Riley was indeed raising a paw.
The 31-year-old baseball star and his ex-girlfriend Emily Yuen adopted "the coolest dog ever" when they were in college. He recalled a few years later:
"We went to the SPCA, and he kept licking our faces. We've been building a bond with this dog. He's been around since day one. He's experienced everything with me."
Upton, meanwhile, regularly posts pictures of her own dog, Boots. She may not be adding another canine to the fam, but at least she bagged a Tiger.
Sorry. Too easy.
