Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn have an adopted Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Chance that Munn rescued from a puppy mill in late 2014. The dog, who the actress says was trained by Rodgers in a day and a half (get Jeff Janis on that program!), lives with the couple and has made frequent appearances in Munn's social media posts and is pretty much the luckiest, happiest, cutest, best dog of all dogs.

(Apologies for reassigning that distinction from Hank the Ballpark Pup, whose star has faded after reports of his death were greatly exaggerated and the team held a press conference to prove his realness and then he, as a dog, won a dumb award for Inspirational Person of the Year.)

Chance now has his own Instagram account – actually he's had it for two months, but, you know, slow news day – and he definitely has more followers than you or us. Anyway, he's been Insta-ing very hard like a good boy and, on Friday, Chance blasted his best gram yet.

Happy Friday! God bless this wonderful dog and his beautiful, glamorous owners. 

Here are some more pictures of Chance with Rodgers, including a couple where the pup is nuzzled up with the Packers quarterback's prized, MVP-winning right arm. Careful, Chance! That's his Hail Mary-heaving arm!

Born in Milwaukee but a product of Shorewood High School (go ‘Hounds!) and Northwestern University (go ‘Cats!), Jimmy never knew the schoolboy bliss of cheering for a winning football, basketball or baseball team. So he ditched being a fan in order to cover sports professionally - occasionally objectively, always passionately. He's lived in Chicago, New York and Dallas, but now resides again in his beloved Brew City and is an ardent attacker of the notorious Milwaukee Inferiority Complex.

After interning at print publications like Birds and Blooms (official motto: "America's #1 backyard birding and gardening magazine!"), Sports Illustrated (unofficial motto: "Subscribe and save up to 90% off the cover price!") and The Dallas Morning News (a newspaper!), Jimmy worked for web outlets like, where he was a Packers beat reporter, and FOX Sports Wisconsin, where he managed digital content. He's a proponent and frequent user of em dashes, parenthetical asides, descriptive appositives and, really, anything that makes his sentences longer and more needlessly complex.

Jimmy appreciates references to late '90s Brewers and Bucks players and is the curator of the unofficial John Jaha Hall of Fame. He also enjoys running, biking and soccer, but isn't too annoying about them. He writes about sports - both mainstream and unconventional - and non-sports, including history, music, food, art and even golf (just kidding!), and welcomes reader suggestions for off-the-beaten-path story ideas.
