Who’s thirstier in these shirtless selfies: Chris Evans or Dodger?


I started seeing Twitter posts claiming there was a new thirst trap shot of Chris Evans and I thought, “haven’t we seen enough of Chris Evans thirst traps?” But, who am I to say no, right? Well, let me tell you – Chris does not disappoint. In possibly the greatest shirtless shot ever, Chris gave us this:

Dodger lying on DODGER 💙

Dodger! Before I get started in a proper gushfest, Chris might want to be careful posting captions with “Dodger” in all caps and blue hearts right now. I get his dog is named after a musical and the blue heart probably means his pup is his support unit, but it looks like this Mr. Boston’s trying to low-key route for LA in the Series. Chris and Dodger have had plenty of time to spend together during lockdown and, like most pet owners, they couldn’t be happier about it. Chris joined Instagram in May because, he claimed, he had a backlog of Dodger pics and the world deserved to see them. He has not disappointed. Occasionally he branches outs with his government side-project, some fall foliage shots and the occasional Bradley Cooper cosplay photo but then he just can’t help himself and its right back to Dodger pics because, as Chris so eloquently put it – “I mean…” :

I mean…

It’s true, that ^^ should be outlawed. Mine do the same thing, strike some redonculous pose, looking so cute it makes you want to cry, acting as if there isn’t a critical US election, global pandemic and general WTFery going on everywhere. And you know what? I’ll take it. Because when I am fed up with everything and I need just a minute that doesn’t leave me thinking my head might explode, I can crawl up next to one of my fur bags and they’ll roll over and for the price of a belly rub, nuzzle a wet nose into my cheek and wag their tail like neither of us have anything else at all to do or think about. It’s the only therapy I’m getting these days.

Sorry, I’m very anxious about the election and really don’t know how I am going to get through this week, so I need Dodger shots and a few stolen moments with my dogs between now and then. For those who also need a little extra help this week, here’s your moment of Zen:

    My therapist told me that dogs are the only animals capable of unconditional love – and I believe it.

  2. LightPurple says:

    That one of Dodger smiling is just killer.

    And many Red Sox fans are supporting the Dodgers in the World Series because of Saint Dave Roberts and Mookie.

  3. Astrid says:

    Photos of humans with their overlords brings on such a sense of peace, as in, all is right with the world.

  4. Darla says:

    These can’t touch Skarsgard’s recent Vogue pics, but I don’t really like dogs so maybe that’s why. I’m not a monster, and would never hurt any animal or allow anyone else to, but I don’t like them in my house. I can’t help it. Oh well! It still beats clicking on the Barrett post, which I’m sorry I know Kaiser must have done a lot of work on that, but I am in no headspace today.

    Dodger 😍 Now that is the thirst trap I don’t mind seeing every day

  6. SJ Knows says:

    Dodger is a cutie pie!
    I happily admit and share that I am giving yummy treats to my senior dog because she lets me rub her ears while she is munching and then she likes to take a loud, very snore-y nap.
    She has very, very soft fur on her ears and it relaxes me and her = ta-da dog nap.

    Sharing pics of a lovely dog is just fine by me.
    Dodger seems to looooove his human. nice.

    Is baseball still going on? MN here and we’ve had snow already + NFL + as is traditional our NFL the MN Vikings are big fat losers 6 weeks in and I think we are 1W, 5L. Nothing new, please move along.

    Btw, I do not need Chris Evans or any celeb to remind me to Vote.

    I love Dodger, he’s so cute. So thanks Chris for a new pic and a peak at your chest!

  8. Joanna says:

    I normally don’t date white guys but he is pretty hot.

  9. Anony83 says:

    Thank you, I needed some Dodger this morning (and Chris, Chris isn’t too bad either, but I’m using him for his dog, let’s be honest).

    One of my dog’s new thing since the pandemic has been wanting to sleep UNDER the blankets with me. All the time. Like, my husband will come into the room and be like “where’s Abbie” and I just pat a random lump in the bed. (She gets very grumpy when she thinks our other dog might step on her and I’m like “YOU’RE the one who chose to be invisible!”)

  10. Queen Meghan's Hand says:

    Dodger is really posing! I love that! The journalist Ana Marie Cox has an ongoing Twitter thread called Basket of Adorables. We really need the pure cuteness of charming dogs (and some cats) to get us through these next days.

  11. Lucy2 says:

    Aw, cute dog!
    Thank God for pets. My 2 cats have gotten me through this so far, and are so cute and ridiculous that I probably taken 10 photos of them a day.
    I was so sad and angry last night, and my girl kitty snuggled with me, and it helped.

  12. Doodle says:

    I have fallen into the YouTube algorithm of baby orangutan videos and let me tell you – it’s bringing me so much joy and peace this week.


  13. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    Look at the goodest boy. Sweet Dodger. I love my 2 doggos so much and my heart melts when we look each other in the eyes.

  14. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I mean… he meant Dodger was lying on the Dodger tattoo…which was so nicely displayed. Perfectly innocent. 👀👀

  15. Grant says:

    Wow… Chris is doing it for me in these pics, honey! I’m more of a cat person but that cute, smiley dog helps too.

  16. Digital Unicorn says:

    Less Chris and more Dodger PLEASE!!!!

  17. DaffiestPlot says:

    He’s just trying to make his peen pic fall farther down the Google search results.

  18. Courtney B says:

    Dodger knows how to work it. The name is from the Artful Dodger dog in Oliver and Co. but it’s also funny given that Steve Rogers was from depression era Brooklyn when the dodgers were there.

  19. Frenchie says:

    I mean… how am I going to survive those thirst traps? 👀

  20. The Recluse says:

    That is one happy pup.
    And his autumn tree pics make me wish I had stayed on the east coast. So beautiful. I miss Fall colors. All we have here in New Mexico for the most part are Aspens.
