She may be more than a week past her due date, but Selma Blair’s dog isn’t cutting her any slack! The expectant mom’s determined little pooch led the way as they trotted around West Hollywood on Thursday.

The pair refueled at a nearby coffee shop, where she chatted with fellow actor Breckin Meyer – but there was more sniffing and walking to be done afterward. This pooch may be wise beyond his size: they always say walks are a good way to induce labor!
