Usually a guy is looking to earn the approval of his girlfriend's parents, but for Amanda Seyfried, we bet scoring her pet's okay is probably the more prudent route – and it seems Justin Long got the message.
On Wednesday, the actress posted a sunset photo of her dog, Australian shepherd Finn, snuggling a mystery man (though we have our guesses as to who it could be). In recent weeks, the Lovelace star and Long have been spotted on more doggy dates, leaving us to assume that Finn is as smitten with his mom's new beau as she is.
"[He's] someone separate from my industry life. I've known him since he was 16," Seyfried revealed of her then-new man in the July issue of Elle, which hit newsstands about a month before she and Long went public. Though we're unsure if Seyfried was referring to the actor, who previously dated Drew Barrymore, there's one individual's official comment we're eager to read: Finn's.

Amanda Seyfried could learn a thing or two about acting from her dog, Finn.
We don't think he'll get a nod at the A-Cat-emy Awards this year – but there's plenty of buzz around our office about the Australian shepherd's emergence as a serious and method-inspired actor, who's not afraid to take risks on the screen with a little James Franco-worthy performance art.
Donning a masquerade mask in an Instagram video Seyfried posted Monday (watch below), Finn comes off as deliberately camera shy (so in character!), standing completely still as the camera captures him from different angles. Like the Lovelace star, the dog acts with his eyes – which appear to be saying, 'Really?'

Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long aren't hiding their feelings for each other.
The pair were spotted getting cozy at the romantic French Bistro La Poubelle in Los Angeles on Saturday night after relaxing in the park with Seyfried's pup, Finn.
An observer told PEOPLE that Seyfried, 27, and Long, 35, left little doubt as to their relationship status.
"They were very much together. He was rubbing her back, she was leaning into him and laughing. They looked like a couple very much in love," said the observer.

From an adult film star to a technological genius, the icons portrayed in Jobs and Lovelace could not be more different – but their biopics have something in common: They both hit theaters this summer, one week apart.
Lovelace, which stars Amanda Seyfried, portrays the life of porn great, Linda "Lovelace" Boreman, who broke free from her abusive manager-boyfriend and helped prevent other women from getting similarly exploited in that world. It opens this weekend.
