Jimmy Fallon and puppies: What more do you even need?

Well, how about football, too?

On Wednesday's The Tonight Show, Fallon called upon a snuggly pack of golden retrievers to look into the crystal (okay, metal) chow bowl and determine who will win the 2015 college championship between the Ohio State Buckeyes and Oregon Ducks.

As ever, the starting line-up consisted of Brad Johnson, Kyle McAdams, Mary Kennedy, Ted Mooney, Roger Blain, Lisa Armstrong and Gary Frick, Jr. (the heir to Fallon's dog Gary Frick, who predicted – unfortunately, alas – the 2012 Presidential election in favor or Republican Mitt Romney).

The life of the luckiest dog on the planet just got a little bit sweeter.

Hugh Jackman announced on Instagram Tuesday that his family has added another dog to their brood, making French bulldog Dali an instant big brother.

"Santa came early and he brought a sister for Dali. No name just yet," said Jackman, sharing a photo of himself holding the adorably shaggy caramel-colored pooch in his arms (swoon).

By Friday, the pup had a name – Allegra – and made its video debut on Jackman's Instagram in a post captioned "Getting to know you ... Dali and Allegra."

Getting to know you .... Dali and Allegra.
