There's no doubt Ian Somerhalder is really into Nikki Reed.
About a month after defending his girlfriend on Instagram against internet trolls, the Vampire Diaries star hit the social networking site to gush over his ladylove again with a lengthy caption of a shot of the two of them hanging with his dogs.
"Day with 3 of the most beautiful ladies in the universe...Wow smiling is such a beautiful part of the human experience-I highly recommend it," he wrote. "Congrats to our little Neitczhe here-1 year ago today, to the minute, you brought 5 beautiful puppies into this world-thank you for your amazing contribution to all of our lives."
"However, welcome to the wonderful world of being spayed-The world does not need any more puppies, we kill millions and millions per year," he continued. "These two beautiful creatures right here in this photo or highly intelligent, highly emotional and capable of more love than you can you can ever imagine. The ones that are in shelters are the same-let's adopt them. @iamnikkireed your recent work with Gilt benefiting the @aspca is truly [truly] extraordinary. Thank you for giving so much of your life and for being a strong voice for those whom can speak. My hat is off to you. You amaze me. Love, Ian."
This guy is too sweet. In the Instagram snap, Ian and Nikki are both all smiles while hanging out in a field with the two pups – one of whom licks Ian's face as they're posing for the shot.
The duo has been going strong and nearly inseparable since they were spotted canoodling at an L.A. farmer's market back in July.
