There’s a high chance you’re walking around right now, reciting the entire Gilmore Girls trailer to yourself, and others, and just about anyone else who will listen. It is a very important thing to us, and we’re holding it near and dear, since this is the FIRST of what is sure to be some MAGICAL Gilmore Girls episodes.

But you might have missed that Lorelai and Rory aren’t alone in the Gilmore Girls trailer.

And no, we’re not talking about the Pop-Tarts.

There’s one Gilmore family member who is notably absent, but don’t worry, he’s still there. While you can’t see him, you can certainly hear him.

Why yes, off in the distance, that is the unmistakable barking of the one and only Paul Anka, Lorelai’s dog. It happens at the 46 second mark if this is a thing you need to hear to believe.

With the rest of Stars Hollow returning again for the revival, it only makes sense for Paul Anka to drop in again, too — and what has he been up to all these years? How many walks have he and Lorelai gone on? How many Pop-Tarts has Lorelai fed him?

It’s also great to know that he’s still around Stars Hollow (because even though it breaks your heart to think about it, our furry friends don’t live as long as us humans). Lauren Graham actually shared a picture of Paul Anka back on set to her Instagram during the revival’s shooting, and it gave us all sorts of happy dog feels:

And if you’re counting down the days, too, Lorelai, Rory, and Paul Anka will return in a short 119 days!!
