If Jimmy Fallon looks slightly more tired these days, don’t blame it on his Late Night job – it’s probably the new puppy!

The comedian introduced his Twitter followers to a furry new friend on Saturday: “A new member of the family,” he Tweeted with a photo of his fluffy new golden retriever.

The choice of breed seems right in line with Fallon’s preferences. Over the years on Late Night, he has featured golden retriever puppies to predict Super Bowl and Oscar winners.

Fallon, who scooped up a Creative Arts Emmy over the weekend for his his guest starring gigs on Saturday Night Live, hasn’t revealed what he’s calling the adorable dog, but we’re thinking Emmy should be a top contender.
