Happy birthday to one of our favorite Girls, Allison Williams! The actress is ringing in her 28th birthday today and what better way to celebrate the special event than with a furry friend? Williams and her husband, Ricky Van Veen, are proud parents to a Golden Retriever-mix named Moxie, and Williams's Instagram feed is essentially a love note to her not-so-little pup.

The Williams-Veen family adopted Moxie, a rescue dog from the North Shore Animal League, when she was believed to be 10-weeks-old. Today, Moxie has made herself at home with her newfound family and even takes trips to the beach with her maternal grandfather, Brian Williams.

Aside from being a mom to Moxie, Williams—who plays Marnie in HBO's Girls, which is now in its fifth season—is proving she's more than an actress alone, and is currently serving as the creative director to the Keds Collective. You can even catch Williams in all of her glory in their spring 2016 ad campaigns.

As for Williams's new venture, she recently dished about her gig to InStyle during New York Fashion Week, where she was on hand to celebrate the iconic shoe brand's 100-year history. "I love anything that drives towards girls being able to determine their own identity. And putting ladies first, that's my thing."

All that girl power seems to be rubbing off on Moxie, as she herself has clearly developed into a full-grown dog. To celebrate the Girls star's 28th birthday, scroll through 13 photos of Williams and Moxie that define #PuppyLove:
