Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are proud to be the kind of people who publicly celebrate their dog's birthday—and we support it! Teigen, 30, shared a sweet throwback photo (below) of the couple and their first baby—a graying English bulldog named Puddy—in honor of the canine's eighth birthday along with a touching message for their loyal companion.

"Before the chaos of two more dogs and a baby, there was only you, our Puddy!!" the proud dog mom and expectant human mother captioned the photo. "My boy. I love you and your graying paws and chops to the moon and back. Happy 8th birthday! Yes, we are those people"

Happy birthday, Puddy!
