In recent weeks, Julianne Hough
has hung tight
with her celebrity besties
like Nina Dobrev and Selena Gomez
, but there's only one girl the star calls her BFF (best furry friend): Harley
"Kisses," wrote the former Dancing with the Stars
pro on Instagram
Thursday, showing off a pouty pose aimed at her beloved pup.
"They're my kids," Hough told PEOPLE in 2011 of her doggy duo
, which also includes Cavalier King Charles spaniel Lexi. "They're my babies."
Hopefully the star's reported new man
, Ari Sandel, has already started practicing his puppy parenting.
