Chris Evans and Jenny Slate have been playing coy about whether or not they’re dating again for the past month. They could just come out and say “Yes,” but that’s no fun. Where’s the not-subtle cutesy Twitter flirting? Chris and Jenny are once again dropping hints about the status of their relationship, but this time Chris’ dog has been dragged into it.
Yesterday Chris tweeted a video of his dog, Dodger, howling with his favorite stuffed lion as it sang a tinny version of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” In the background you can hear Chris laughing and you can also hear a woman laughing. People points out that it’s probably Jenny Slate. Or maybe he just leaned into a pillow that Jenny gave him while they were still dating that she recorded her own laughter into? With their history of being extremely extra with each other, I would not put that past either of them.
This is Dodger’s stuffed lion. He loves it. He brings it everywhere. If you press it’s paw, it sings. Today, Dodger decided to join in. pic.twitter.com/CuH53VNVtF

This video begs to ask the question: Chris, are you two dating or what? I also have a follow up question: Did you steal those stonewashed boot-cut jeans from the set of Not Another Teen Movie?
At the 0:18 mark, it looks to me like Dodger is giving his owner a look and thinking “I better be getting an extra helping of Iams tonight for participating in your damn stunt.” I wouldn’t blame him, but I don’t think that’s why he’s giving Chris that look. Dodger’s lion is singing about sleeping while sounding pretty damn sleepy itself. Poor Dodger isn’t singing along; he’s trying to get his owner to put down his iPhone and change his buddy’s batteries.
