Looks like something has come between Kaley Cuoco and her beau Ryan Sweeting: her pit bull Loretta!
The Big Bang Theory star confesses in an Instagram photo posted Wednesday that “she can’t stop kissing this lil girl,” even with her boyfriend laying just inches away.
Not that her tennis pro man seems to mind. He, too, gets plenty of affection from the pup, a former foster dog that Cuoco, 27, adopted in 2012. On another Instagram shot of Sweeting and Loretta snuggling, the actress writes, “I think he loves her more than me.”
