Aww! Luke Bryan is the proud new papa of a fur-baby, and boy is he adorable!

Bryan took to his Instagram account yesterday to announce a new addition to the family — a Chocolate Labrador, of course.

The Lab appears to be quite comfortable, both at home and on the water. Choc didn’t hesitate to curl up on Bryan’s lap to catch a snooze after going for a swim. After all, swimming can be exhausting — especially for a puppy!

It’s no secret that Labs make great family pets, and we have a hunch Luke and family have plenty of hunting and fishing excursions planned for Choc in the near future.

Meet the new pup. Choc.
