Hayden Panettiere is essentially quite adorable. She's tiny, hot, played a cheerleader in the show Heroes and is just basically pretty good. Here she is looking adorable at the London premiere of her new movie, Alpha and Omega.

Alpha and Omega is a cartoon about wolves, so somebody involved in the promotion of the film decided it would be a good idea to have Hayden hold a baby wolf while walking down the red carpet. It was a good idea. Team an adorable Hayden Panettiere with an adorable baby wolf and you get adorable-squared. That's a lot of adorable.

Obviously this is still a wolf, so as much as you may wish to provoke the above reaction from your girlfriend this Christmas, you probably shouldn't buy her a wolf. It's all cute and fluffy right now but once it gets a little bit bigger it would probably rip Hayden's face off in one swift bite. Not adorable.

But for now, let's forget the innate savagery of wolves and just bask in the simple beauty of a very pretty lady holding a very cute little animal and pretend that the former is our girlfriend and the latter our faithful pet and that at the end of the day we will go home to both of them, where we will sit by a lovely fire, eat a big pie and watch a nice old film. Lovely.
