Extra host Mario Lopez received a double dose of cute while he was away on business in Houston last week – and he decided to share the love on Twitter!

This shot of the family’s French bulldog, Julio, receiving a kiss from Lopez’s 10-month-old daughter Gia was a warm fuzzy – and belly laugh! – for Dad, who was far away from their L.A. abode.

“Back home @CLMazza sent me a pic of Gia giving Julio a beso,” he wrote. “Looks like she’s biting him!”
